Scandit Data Capture SDK 6.21 Release Notes (December 8, 2023)

See also the System Requirements of the Scandit Data Capture SDK across all platforms.

New Features

Barcode

  • Added support for QR model 1 codes (legacy format).

  • Added support for UPU 4-State codes with fluorescent orange ink (fluorescent_orange_ink extension, see also Symbology Properties).

  • Added SparkScan battery saving mode option, to control the battery usage and extend scanning sessions. This option is enabled by default, but it is possible to control it via battery saving mode, deciding whether it’s automatic (default), always on or always off. See SparkScanSettings.batterySaving.

ID

  • Added DateResult.localDate and DateResult.utcDate which convert the date result to System.DateTime using device’s local time zone or the UTC time zone respectively. They replace Date, which is now deprecated.

  • IdCapture now supports capturing the information from the PDF417 barcode of a US Common Access Card.

  • Added support for id.IdDocumentType.PassportViz.

  • Added id.CapturedId.DocumentAdditionalNumber which represents the additional number of the document.

  • Added IdCaptureFeedback. ID Capture allows to configure sound & vibration feedback to emit when a document is captured, rejected or the timeout occurs. By default the feedback is emitted when a document is captured.

  • Added AAMVABarcodeResult.firstNameWithoutMiddleName.
