Autofetch of scanned Barcode

Hi,

Well our upcoming project involves scanning of barcode, I am trying to understand "Can ODK auto-fetch the scanned barcode result?". For example, if we open the app and scan the barcode, ODK should be able to fetch the serial number of that particular barcode. A solution on this would be very helpful. Thanks you in advance.

Regards,
Kiran

Is the serial number part of the barcode?

Yes, we are planning to design it that way.

Yes, ODK can scan the barcode, decode it, and display out whatever number is in the barcode. See https://docs.getodk.org/form-question-types/#barcode-widget for more.
