Get Started With The Parser

The parser parses data strings, e.g. as found in barcodes, into a set of key-value mappings. In this guide, you will learn how to use a parser and what types of parser are currently supported. These data formats are supported: Health Industry Bar Code (HIBC), GS1 Application Identifier (parser/AI) system, GS1 Digital Link (parser/DL) system, Swiss QR Codes, VIN Vehicle Identification Number, and IATA Bar Coded Boarding Pass (BCBP).

More data formats will be added in future releases. Please contact us if the data format you are using is not yet supported, or you want to use the parser on a currently unsupported platform.


Before starting with adding a capture mode, make sure that you have a valid Scandit Data Capture SDK license key and that you added the necessary dependencies. If you have not done that yet, check out this guide.
