At this point the barkoder_flutter package is installed and imported in your project. Next step is to add the BarkoderView in your layout and set the licenseKey parameter and onBarkoderViewCreated callback.

   Widget build(BuildContext context) {
     return Scaffold(
       body: BarkoderView(
                 licenseKey: 'KEY',
                 onBarkoderViewCreated: _onBarkoderViewCreated),

The license key is a string that concists of alphanumerical characters. See section Section 8 to learn how to get a valid license.

6. Ready to Scan Event #

Inside _onBarkoderViewCreated callback function the SDK is fully initialized and ready for configuration or to start the scanning process

 void _onBarkoderViewCreated(barkoder) {
   _barkoder = barkoder;

   _barkoder.setBarcodeTypeEnabled(BarcodeType.qr, true);

 void _scanPressed() {
   _barkoder.startScanning((result) {
     // The result from successful scan is received here

The SDK will scan barcodes even without a valid license; however all results will be randomly masked with (*) Asterisk characters. By using our software you are agreeing to our End User License Agreement. To obtain a valid license, one should create an account here and either get a trial license (to test the software out) or procure a production license that can be used within a live app.
