Steps

  1. Add a SurfaceView to your layout
<SurfaceView
  android:id="@+id/camera_view"
  android:layout_width="match_parent"
  android:layout_height="match_parent"
  android:layout_above="@+id/info"
  />
  1. Setup SurfaceView and QREader in onCreate()
// QREader
private SurfaceView mySurfaceView;
private QREader qrEader;
..

@Override
protected void onCreate(final Bundle savedInstanceState) {
  super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
  setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
  ..
  ..

  // Setup SurfaceView
  // -----------------
  mySurfaceView = (SurfaceView) findViewById(R.id.camera_view);

  // Init QREader
  // ------------
  qrEader = new QREader.Builder(this, mySurfaceView, new QRDataListener() {
    @Override
    public void onDetected(final String data) {
      Log.d("QREader", "Value : " + data);
      text.post(new Runnable() {
        @Override
        public void run() {
          text.setText(data);
        }
      });
    }
  }).facing(QREader.BACK_CAM)
      .enableAutofocus(true)
      .height(mySurfaceView.getHeight())
      .width(mySurfaceView.getWidth())
      .build();

}
  1. Initialize and Start in onResume()
  @Override
  protected void onResume() {
    super.onResume();

    // Init and Start with SurfaceView
    // -------------------------------
    qrEader.initAndStart(mySurfaceView);
  }
  1. Cleanup in onPause()
  @Override
  protected void onPause() {
    super.onPause();

    // Cleanup in onPause()
    // --------------------
    qrEader.releaseAndCleanup();
  }
  1. Some provided utility functions which you can use
  • To check if the camera is running

    boolean isCameraRunning = qrEader.isCameraRunning()
  • To stop QREader

    qrEader.stop();
  • To start QREader

    qrEader.start();
Check the included sample app for a working example.

Pull Requests

I welcome and encourage all pull requests. It usually will take me within 24-48 hours to respond to any issue or request. Here are some basic rules to follow to ensure timely addition of your request:

  1. Match coding style (braces, spacing, etc.) This is best achieved using CMD+Option+L (Reformat code) on Mac (not sure for Windows) with Android Studio defaults.
  2. If its a feature, bugfix, or anything please only change code to what you specify.
  3. Please keep PR titles easy to read and descriptive of changes, this will make them easier to merge :)
  4. Pull requests must be made against develop branch. Any other branch (unless specified by the maintainers) will get rejected.
  5. Check for existing issues first, before filing an issue.
  6. Have fun!
