settingsForSymbology(symbology: Symbology): SymbologySettings

Added in version 6.2.0

Get SymbologySettings specific for the given Symbology.

Note that modifying the returned object doesn’t automatically apply the changes to BarcodeTracking. After you made changes to the symbology settings,

call BarcodeTracking.applySettings()

with these BarcodeTrackingSettings to apply them.

get enabledSymbologies(): Symbology[]

Added in version 6.2.0

Returns the set of enabled symbologies.

enableSymbologies(symbologies: Symbology[]): void

Added in version 6.2.0

This function provides a convenient shortcut to enabling decoding of particular symbologies without having to go through SymbologySettings. By default, all symbologies are turned off and symbologies need to be explicitly enabled.

enableSymbology(symbology, enabled)
enableSymbology(symbology: Symbology,
        enabled: boolean): void

Added in version 6.2.0

This function provides a convenient shortcut to enabling/disabling decoding of a particular symbology without having to go through SymbologySettings.


Some 1d barcode symbologies allow you to encode variable-length data. By default, the Scandit Data Capture SDK only scans barcodes in a certain length range.

If your application requires scanning of one of these symbologies, and the length is falling outside the default range, you may need to adjust the active symbol counts for the symbology in addition to enabling it.

setProperty(name, value)
setProperty(name: string,
        value: any): void

Added in version 6.2.0

Sets property to the provided value. Use this method to set properties that are not yet part of a stable API. Properties set through this method may or may not be used or change in a future release.

getProperty(name: string): any

Added in version 6.2.0

Retrieves the value of a previously set property. In case the property does not exist, -1 is returned.

setArucoDictionary(dictionary: ArucoDictionary): void

Added in version 6.21.0

Sets the ArucoDictionary to be used while scanning ArUco codes. When the symbology is enabled the dictionary ArucoDictionaryPreset.ArucoDictionaryPreset_5X5_1000 is loaded as default.
