Pdf417 barcode reader

Hi, I’d like to know if I could create an app that can read and decode text and even images from barcodes in pdf417.
Is there a way to integrate a barcode reader that can read pdf417?

Hello. barcode scanning is built into appsheet. A field marked as an “image” with the checkbox for “scanning” will give you an input on your mobile device to scan a QR or Barcode. I just tested PDF417 and it appears to work, e.g. an app I have scanned the barcodes found on this wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PDF417

To learn more about barcode scanning support take a look at https://help.appsheet.com/en/articles/961642-using-a-barcode-scanner

Hope this helps!
