Barcode Tracking Advanced Overlay#

Defined in framework ScanditBarcodeCapture

SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay#
@interface SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay : UIView <SDCDataCaptureOverlay>

Added in version 6.0.0

An overlay for SDCDataCaptureView that allows anchoring a single user-provided View to each tracked barcode.

The provided view is visible on the top of the camera preview as long as its tracked barcode is and for all this time retains its relative position to it. This is useful when an additional information should be provided to tracked barcodes in real time. For instance, a user may overlay the price of an item or its expiry date for each corresponding barcode.

To display the views, this overlay must be attached to a SDCDataCaptureView. This may be done either by creating it with overlayWithBarcodeTracking:forDataCaptureView: with a non-null view parameter or by passing this overlay to SDCDataCaptureView.addOverlay:.

A user of this class may configure what view is displayed for the given barcode and the relative position between the two by implementing SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate or by calling setView:forTrackedBarcode:, setAnchor:forTrackedBarcode: or setOffset:forTrackedBarcode:.

For additional information about using this overlay, refer to Get Started With MatrixScan and Add AR Overlays in MatrixScan.

+ (instancetype)overlayWithBarcodeTracking:(nonnull SDCBarcodeTracking *)barcodeTracking
                        forDataCaptureView:(nullable SDCDataCaptureView *)view

Added in version 6.0.0

Constructs a new barcode tracking advanced overlay for the barcode tracking instance. The overlay is automatically added to the view.

Added in version 6.3.0

Constructs a new barcode tracking advanced overlay with the provided JSON serialization. See Serialization for details.

For the overlay to be displayed on screen, it must be added to a SDCDataCaptureView.

- setView:forTrackedBarcode:#
- (void)setView:(nullable UIView *)view
forTrackedBarcode:(nonnull SDCTrackedBarcode *)trackedBarcode

Added in version 6.0.0

The method can be called to change the view drawn for the given tracked barcode. Setting the view to nil will unset the view from the tracked barcode and will effectively remove it from the overlay. This method is thread-safe, it can be called from any thread. The view set via this method will take precedence over the one set via SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:viewForTrackedBarcode:: in case a view is set before SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:viewForTrackedBarcode: got called, no call to SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:viewForTrackedBarcode: will happen.

- setAnchor:forTrackedBarcode:#
- (void)setAnchor:(SDCAnchor)anchor
forTrackedBarcode:(nonnull SDCTrackedBarcode *)trackedBarcode

Added in version 6.0.0

The method can be called to change the anchor point for the view associated with the given tracked barcode. This method is thread-safe, it can be called from any thread. The anchor set via this method will take precedence over the one set via SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:anchorForTrackedBarcode:: in case a view is set before SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:anchorForTrackedBarcode: got called, no call to SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:anchorForTrackedBarcode: will happen.

- setOffset:forTrackedBarcode:#
- (void)setOffset:(SDCPointWithUnit)offset
forTrackedBarcode:(nonnull SDCTrackedBarcode *)trackedBarcode

Added in version 6.0.0

The method can be called to change the offset for the view associated with the given tracked barcode. This method is thread-safe, it can be called from any thread. The offset set via this method will take precedence over the one set via SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:offsetForTrackedBarcode:: in case a view is set before SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:offsetForTrackedBarcode: got called, no call to SDCBarcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlayDelegate.barcodeTrackingAdvancedOverlay:offsetForTrackedBarcode: will happen. If the SDCMeasureUnit of the offset is SDCMeasureUnitFraction, the offset is calculated relative to view’s dimensions.

- clearTrackedBarcodeViews#
- (void)clearTrackedBarcodeViews

Added in version 6.0.0

Clears all the views for the currently tracked barcodes from this overlay. This method is thread-safe, it can be called from any thread.

- updateFromJSONString:error:#
- (BOOL)updateFromJSONString:(nonnull NSString *)JSONString
                       error:(NSError **)error

Added in version 6.3.0

Updates the overlay according to a JSON serialization. See Serialization for details.
