JavaScript Hello World Sample - Next.js

Next.js is an open-source development framework built on top of Node.js enabling React based web applications functionalities such as server-side rendering and generating static websites. Follow this guide to learn how to implement Dynamsoft Barcode Reader JavaScript SDK (hereafter called “the library”) into a Next.js application. Note that in this sample we will use TypeScript.

Official Sample

Preparation

Make sure you have node installed. node 14.21.3 and next 13.2.4 are used in the example below.

Create the sample project

Create a Bootstrapped Raw Next.js Application

npx create-next-app@latest --typescript

CD to the root directory of the application and install the dependencies

npm install dynamsoft-javascript-barcode

Start to implement

Add a file dbr.ts at the root of the application to configure the library

import { BarcodeReader } from 'dynamsoft-javascript-barcode';
BarcodeReader.license = 'DLS2eyJvcmdhbml6YXRpb25JRCI6IjIwMDAwMSJ9';
BarcodeReader.engineResourcePath = "https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/dynamsoft-javascript-barcode@9.6.33/dist/";

Note:

  • license specify a license key to use the library. You can visit https://www.dynamsoft.com/customer/license/trialLicense?utm_source=sample&product=dbr&package=js to get your own trial license good for 30 days.
  • engineResourcePath tells the library where to get the necessary resources at runtime.

Create a directory “components” and create the following files inside it to represent three components

  • VideoDecode.tsx
  • ImgDecode.tsx
  • HelloWorld.tsx

Edit the VideoDecode component

  • In VideoDecode.tsx, add code for initializing and destroying the BarcodeScanner instance. The VideoDecode component uses BarcodeScanner class of the library to help decode barcodes via camera.
import { BarcodeScanner } from "dynamsoft-javascript-barcode";
import React from 'react';
import styles from '@/styles/VideoDecode.module.css'

class VideoDecode extends React.Component {
    pScanner: Promise<BarcodeScanner>|null = null;
    elRef: React.RefObject<HTMLDivElement> = React.createRef();
    async componentDidMount() {
        try {
            const scanner = await (this.pScanner = BarcodeScanner.createInstance());
            // Should judge if scanner is destroyed after 'await', as in development React runs setup and cleanup one extra time before the actual setup in Strict Mode. 
            if(scanner.isContextDestroyed()) return;
            await scanner.setUIElement(this.elRef.current!);
            // Should judge if scanner is destroyed after 'await', as in development React runs setup and cleanup one extra time before the actual setup in Strict Mode. 
            if(scanner.isContextDestroyed()) return;
            scanner.onFrameRead = results => {
                for (let result of results) {
                    console.log(result.barcodeText);
                }
            };
            scanner.onUniqueRead = (txt, result) => {
                alert(txt);
            }
            await scanner.open();
        } catch (ex: any) {
            if (ex.message.indexOf("network connection error")) {
                let customMsg = "Failed to connect to Dynamsoft License Server: network connection error. Check your Internet connection or contact Dynamsoft Support (support@dynamsoft.com) to acquire an offline license.";
                console.log(customMsg);
                alert(customMsg);
            }
            throw ex;
        }
    }
    async componentWillUnmount() {
        if (this.pScanner) {
            (await this.pScanner).destroyContext();
            console.log('BarcodeScanner Component Unmount');
        }
    }
    shouldComponentUpdate() {
        // Never update UI after mount, dbrjs sdk use native way to bind event, update will remove it.
        return false;
    }
    render() {

Note:

  • The html code in render() and the following code builds the UI for the library.

    await scanner.setUIElement(this.elRef.current!);
    
  • To release resources timely, the BarcodeScanner instance is destroyed with the component in the callback componentWillUnmount.
  • The component should never update (check the code for shouldComponentUpdate()) so that events bound to the UI stay valid.
  • Create ‘VideoDecode.module.css’ under ‘/styles/’ and define the style of the component in it
.component-barcode-scanner{width:100%;height:100%;/* min-width:640px; */min-height:480px;background:#eee;position:relative;resize:both;}

Edit the ImgDecode component

  • In ImgDecode.tsx, add code for initializing and destroying the BarcodeReader instance. The ImgDecode component uses BarcodeReader class of the library to help decode barcodes in an image.
import React, { ChangeEvent, Component } from 'react'
import { BarcodeReader } from "dynamsoft-javascript-barcode";
import styles from '@/styles/ImgDecode.module.css'

export default class ImgDecode extends Component {
  pReader: Promise<BarcodeReader> = BarcodeReader.createInstance();

  decodeImg = async (e: ChangeEvent<HTMLInputElement>) => {
    try {
      const reader = await this.pReader;
      let results = await reader.decode(e.target.files![0]);
      for (let result of results) {

  • Create ‘ImgDecode.module.css’ under ‘/styles/’ and define the style of the component in it
.ImgDecode {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  border: 1px solid black
}

Edit the HelloWorld component

  • Add VideoDecode and ImgDecode components in HelloWorld.tsx
import React from 'react';
import VideoDecode from './VideoDecode';
import ImgDecode from './ImgDecode';
import "../dbr"; // import side effects. The license, engineResourcePath, so on.
import { BarcodeReader } from "dynamsoft-javascript-barcode";
import styles from '@/styles/HelloWorld.module.css'

interface isState {
    bShowScanner: boolean,
    bShowImgDecode: boolean
}

class HelloWorld extends React.Component<any, isState> {
    state = {
        bShowScanner: true,
        bShowImgDecode: false
    };
    
    async componentDidMount() {
        try {
            await BarcodeReader.loadWasm();
        } catch (ex: any) {
            if (ex.message.indexOf("network connection error")) {
                let customMsg = "Failed to connect to Dynamsoft License Server: network connection error. Check your Internet connection or contact Dynamsoft Support (support@dynamsoft.com) to acquire an offline license.";
                console.log(customMsg);
                alert(customMsg);
            }
            throw ex;
        }
    }

    showScanner = () => {
        this.setState({
            bShowScanner: true,
            bShowImgDecode: false
        });
    }

    showImgDecode = () => {
        this.setState({
            bShowScanner: false,
            bShowImgDecode: true
        });
    }

    render() {
        return (
            <div className={styles.helloWorld}>
                <h1 className={styles.header}>Hello World for Next.js</h1>
                <div>
                    <button className={styles.button} style= onClick={this.showScanner}>Video Decode</button>
                    <button className={styles.button} style= onClick={this.showImgDecode}>Image Decode</button>
                </div>
                <div className={styles.container}>
                    {this.state.bShowScanner ? (<VideoDecode></VideoDecode>) : ""}
                    {this.state.bShowImgDecode ? (<ImgDecode></ImgDecode>) : ""}
                </div>
            </div>
        );
    }
}
export default HelloWorld;
  • Create ‘HelloWorld.module.css’ under ‘/styles/’ and define the style of the component in it
.helloWorld {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100%;
  color: #455A64;
}

.header {
  font-size: 1.5em;
}

.button {
  font-size: 1.5rem;
  margin: 1.5vh 0;
  border: 1px solid black;
  background-color: white;
  color: black;
}

.container {
  margin: 2vmin auto;
  width: 100%;
}

Add the HelloWorld component to /pages/index.tsx

In index.tsx, import the HelloWorld component:

import HelloWorld from '../components/HelloWorld'

Change the <main> tag like this:

<main className={styles.main}>
  <div className={styles.UIElement}>
    <HelloWorld />
  </div>
</main>
  • Define the style of the “App” element in styles/Home.module.css
.UIElement {
  margin: 2vmin auto;
  text-align: center;
  font-size: medium;
  width: 80vw;
}
  • Try running the project.
npm run dev

If you have followed all the steps correctly, you should now have a functioning page that allows you to scan barcodes from a webcam or a built-in camera. Additionally, if you want to decode a local image, you can click the Image Decode button and select the image you want to decode. Any barcodes that are detected will be displayed in a dialog.
