Getting Started With Dynamsoft Xamarin Barcode Reader

The Dynamsoft Xamarin Barcode Reader SDK is available as an npm package. Build your own Xamarin Barcode Reader app in a few lines of code:

Initialize the Project:

DCVCameraEnhancer dce = new DCVCameraEnhancer(context: this);
DCVBarcodeReader dbr = new DCVBarcodeReader();
LoadApplication(new App(dce, dbr));
DCVCameraEnhancer dce = new DCVCameraEnhancer();
DCVBarcodeReader dbr = new DCVBarcodeReader();
LoadApplication(new App(dce, dbr));
public partial class App : Application, ILicenseVerificationListener{
    public App(IDCVCameraEnhancer dce, IDCVBarcodeReader dbr)
        barcodeReader.InitLicense("DLS2eyJvcmdhbml6YXRpb25JRCI6IjIwMDAwMSJ9", this);
    public void LicenseVerificationCallback(bool isSuccess, string msg)
        if (!isSuccess)

Configure the Barcode Reader:

DBRRuntimeSettings settings = barcodeReader.GetRuntimeSettings();
settings.BarcodeFormatIds = EnumBarcodeFormat.BF_ONED;
settings.ExpectedBarcodeCount = 0;
settings.Timeout = 1000;
