How To Add a Xamarin Component

Adding the Component from the Component Store

Under normal circumstances you should get the Scandit Barcode Scanner Component directly from the Xamarin Component Store. This will allow you to very easily add the component to your project. You can use the components walkthrough by Xamarin for this.

Adding the Component manually

In case you received the component directly from us you will have to install it manually. For this you need to download the xpkg tool from Xamarin:

Unzip Scandit Barcode Scanner zip file, open the console and execute the following command under Windows:

<path to>xamarin-component.exe install /path/to/scandit-X.X.X.xam

Or under OS X:

mono <path to>xamarin-component.exe install /path/to/scandit-X.X.X.xam
