And after scanning a barcode how to retrieve the product details.AS we saving the barcode as image and barcode scanner storing the result in string.   Please provide a solution for the above requirement.   Thanks in advance.

Hi Sabita,


Thanks for asking your question on the forum. I think you already have the required components available. I will try to keep it short;


- You currently have a product with a unique number/identifier. For this number, you will generate a bar code. You need to make sure that you store the generated image with the product (for displaying) together with the unique number (as a string).

- The barcode you created can be used in a default image viewer on any page or print you want. For printing the image, you could use DocumentTemplates, for example.

- You could use the barcode scanner widget from the Marketplace to use the camera of (mobile) device to scan the generated barcode. When processing the result of this scanner, you can use the stored product number to retrieve the correct product.
