Why not just set UseExternalScanner to true?

Hello Ken

Already try that option, but it open the same app, the appinventor default, with less options and a rotate view of the scanner. actually its more difficult to use it and focus the codebar, because the orientation of the preview has rotation.

I also think that it give you the option to choose what app you want to use.

The way that i try allows open the other app, perform the scan and close the app, but i can’t get the result value from the scan.

The Block ActivityStarter.AfterActivity, return a empty string or ‘nothing’, i don’t remember exactly, but any value is obtained.

Thanks KEN

Maybe this will work:?

Sorry I missed this.

Yes already try that.

Thanks Ken
