How to use Scanner View

SwiftUI QRCode Scanner

Add camera usage description to your info.plist

<key>NSCameraUsageDescription</key>
<string>This app needs access to the camera, to be able to read barcodes.</string>

Simple Scanner

import SwiftUI
import CarBode
import AVFoundation //import to access barcode types you want to scan

struct ContentView: View {

    var body: some View {
        VStack{

        CBScanner(
                supportBarcode: .constant([.qr, .code128]), //Set type of barcode you want to scan
                scanInterval: .constant(5.0) //Event will trigger every 5 seconds
            ){
                //When the scanner found a barcode
                print("BarCodeType =",$0.type.rawValue, "Value =",$0.value)
            }

    }
}

Draw box around the barcode

import SwiftUI
import CarBode
import AVFoundation //import to access barcode types you want to scan

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack{
        CBScanner(
                supportBarcode: .constant([.qr, .code128]), //Set type of barcode you want to scan
                scanInterval: .constant(5.0) //Event will trigger every 5 seconds
            ){
                //When the scanner found a barcode
                print("BarCodeType =",$0.type.rawValue, "Value =",$0.value)
            }
            onDraw: {
                print("Preview View Size = \($0.cameraPreviewView.bounds)")
                print("Barcode Corners = \($0.corners)")
                
                //line width
                let lineWidth = 2 

                //line color
                let lineColor = UIColor.red 

                //Fill color with opacity
                //You also can use UIColor.clear if you don't want to draw fill color
                let fillColor = UIColor(red: 0, green: 1, blue: 0.2, alpha: 0.4)
                
                //Draw box
                $0.draw(lineWidth: lineWidth, lineColor: lineColor, fillColor: fillColor)
            }
    }
}

How to turn torch light on/off

import SwiftUI
import CarBode
import AVFoundation //import to access barcode types you want to scan

@State var torchIsOn = false

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack{

        Button(action: {
            self.torchIsOn.toggle() //Toggle On/Off
        }) {
            Text("Toggle Torch Light")
        }
            
        Spacer()
        
        CBScanner(
                supportBarcode: .constant([.qr, .code128]), //Set type of barcode you want to scan
                scanInterval: .constant(5.0), //Event will trigger every 5 seconds
                torchLightIsOn: $torchIsOn // Bind a Bool to enable/disable torch light
            ){
                //When the scanner found a barcode
                print("BarCodeType =",$0.type.rawValue, "Value =",$0.value)
            }
        }
    }
}

Switch to front camera

import SwiftUI
import CarBode
import AVFoundation //import to access barcode types you want to scan

@State var torchIsOn = false

struct ContentView: View {
    var body: some View {
        VStack{

        @State var cameraPosition = AVCaptureDevice.Position.back

        // Click to Toggle camera
        Button(action: {
            if cameraPosition == .back {
                cameraPosition = .front
            }else{
                cameraPosition = .back
            }
        }) {
            if cameraPosition == .back{
                Text("Swicth Camera to Front")
            }else{
                Text("Swicth Camera to Back")
            }
        }
            
        Spacer()
        
        CBScanner(
                supportBarcode: .constant([.qr, .code128]), //Set type of barcode you want to scan
                scanInterval: .constant(5.0), //Event will trigger every 5 seconds
                
                cameraPosition: $cameraPosition  //Bind to switch front/back camera
            ){
                //When the scanner found a barcode
                print("BarCodeType =",$0.type.rawValue, "Value =",$0.value)
            }
        }
    }
}

Test on iOS simulator

The iOS simulator doesn't support the camera yet but you can set a mock barcode for iOS simulator.

No need to remove the mock barcode from the production app it will only use for iOS simulator.

    CBScanner(
        supportBarcode: .constant([.qr, .code128]), //Set type of barcode you want to scan
        scanInterval: .constant(5.0), //Event will trigger every 5 seconds
        mockBarCode: .constant(BarcodeData(value:"Mocking data", type: .qr))
    ){
        //When you click the button on screen mock data will appear here
        print("BarCodeType =",$0.type.rawValue, "Value =",$0.value)
    }

How to use barcode generator view

SwiftUI QRCode Scanner

Example code

import SwiftUI

struct ModalBarcodeGenerator: View {
    @State var dataString = "Hello Carbode"
    @State var barcodeType = CBBarcodeView.BarcodeType.qrCode
    @State var rotate = CBBarcodeView.Orientation.up

    var body: some View {
        var body: some View {
            VStack {
                CBBarcodeView(data: $dataString,
                              barcodeType: $barcodeType,
                              orientation: $rotate)
                    .frame(minWidth: 0, maxWidth: .infinity, minHeight: 400, maxHeight: 400, alignment: .topLeading)
            }
        }
    }
}

Barcode type you can generate

//QR Code
// CBBarcodeView.BarcodeType.qrCode
//Code 128
// CBBarcodeView.BarcodeType.barcode128
//Aztec Code
// CBBarcodeView.BarcodeType.aztecCode
//PDF417
// CBBarcodeView.BarcodeType.PDF417

@State var barcodeType = CBBarcodeView.BarcodeType.qrCode
CBBarcodeView(data: ..... ,
                barcodeType: $barcodeType ,
                orientation: ... )

Rotate your barcode

/*Youcan rotate 4 directions
CBBarcodeView.Orientation.up
CBBarcodeView.Orientation.down
CBBarcodeView.Orientation.left
CBBarcodeView.Orientation.right*/

@State var rotate = CBBarcodeView.Orientation.left
CBBarcodeView(data: ..... ,
                barcodeType: ..... ,
                orientation: $rotate)
