An exmaple with specific symbologies

BarcodeResult result = await FlutterScandit(symbologies: [
  // - any other valid sumbologies
], licenseKey: "-- ENTER YOUR SCANDIT LICENSE KEY HERE --") // use your scandit key here
String barcodeData = result.data; // actual barcode string
Symbology scannedSymbology = result.symbology; // the symbology which was scanned

Make sure to wrap the invocation of the method in a try catch block to handle any BarcodeScanException exceptions that may occur.

You should always pass the intended symbologies along with your call. It is also important to check that the symbologies you are selecting align with your Scandit license restrictions.

Since the actual licence keys may be different per platoform, it is advised to abtract this out using environment variables or global configuration that can be changed per build/environment.
