Deprecation warning

Please note that this is outdated documentation for an older release of the Scandit Barcode Scanner SDK.

We are deprecating the 5.x API on all platforms (except Linux). Release 5.19 in April 2021 will be our final. Applications running 5.x will continue to work, and we will continue to release critical bug fixes and security patches only, for one year. We encourage you to migrate to 6.x and take advantage of our latest / advanced features and improved performance.

You'll find the updated documentation at: Data Capture SDK Documentation for Xamarin.Android and Data Capture SDK Documentation for Xamarin.iOS

Using the Sample Apps

Sample applications that show how the Xamarin NuGet packages can be integrated into your project are hosted in this GitHub repository. There are two different types of samples: Samples for the unified API and samples for the platform-specific (native) API. These are available in the Unified and Native subfolders, respectively.

There is a branch for each release, e.g. the release-5.1 branch contains the samples for the 5.1 release. The samples will automatically pull in the correct version of the barcode picker. The default branch points to the latest stable release.

To use the samples, just clone the repository, or download the zip file directly from the github website and open the solution file in either Visual Studio, or Xamarin Studio.
