New Features

Barcode

  • SparkScan has received a number of updates and improvements:

  • Barcode Pick is an API that implements MatrixScan Pick. MatrixScan Pick is an out-of-the-box scan solution; it uses real-time inventory data and augmented reality to assign precise, item-specific tasks, guaranteeing pinpoint accuracy in restocking, inventory audits, and parcel delivery. Barcode Pick is no longer in beta.

  • Added support for Symbology.AustralianPost. By default, customer information is decoded with Table N, and Table C is used as a fallback. To set a specific decoding table for the customer information, use the symbology extensions: force_table_c or force_table_n to enforce decoding with either C or N tables respectively. The symbology extension decode_bar_states returns the error-corrected customer information bars as a string of the bar states, A for ascending, D for descending, T for tracker and F for full.

  • Added support for Symbology.Upu4State.

ID

  • Added IdCaptureOverlay.textHintPosition that allows setting of text hints position.

  • Added IdCaptureOverlay.showTextHints for showing/hiding text hints.

  • It is now possible to run basic authenticity checks on VIZ & MRZ documents by comparing the data from the VIZ with the data decoded from the MRZ. Check VizMrzComparisonVerifier for details. This feature is currently in beta, and may still change significantly in the next releases.

Core

  • Added support to set control images through a resource name.
