Initialization Control

The following static methods and properties help to set up the runtime environment for the library.


Specifies the path to find the engine(s). The property needs to be set before loadWasm. If not specified, the library will try to find the engine in the same location as the main JavaScript file (dbr.js).

static engineResourcePath: string

Code Snippet

Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeReader.engineResourcePath = "";
await Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeReader.loadWasm();


Downloads and compiles the engine to get it loaded/ready for a BarcodeReader or BarcodeScanner instance to be created. You can call this API to silently set the operating environment of the library as soon as the page is loaded, avoiding unnecessary waiting time when using the library later.

If this API is not called beforehand, it will be called automatically when creating an instance of BarcodeReader or BarcodeScanner.

static loadWasm(): Promise<void>

Code Snippet

window.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', (event) => {


Returns whether the engine is loaded/ready.

static isLoaded(): boolean


Returns the version of the library including the detailed version numbers of the engine and the main JavaScript code.

The engine version is only valid after loadWasm has been called.

readonly static version: string

Code Snippet

// loading...(JS
await Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeReader.loadWasm();
console.log("When loaded..." + Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeReader.version);


Returns a report on the current running environments.

static detectEnvironment(): Promise<any>

Code Snippet

// {"wasm":true, "worker":true, "getUserMedia":true, "camera":true, 
// "browser":"Chrome", "version":90, "OS":"Windows"}
