  1. Tap the Capture Barcode button.iOS_Barcode Field.png
  2. Your device's camera will launch and you will see a square in the center of the screen.
  3. You will now need to line up the barcode within the square.
  4. The square will turn green once the form can read the barcode and the code will be captured like taking a picture. You don’t have to do anything more than lining up the barcode with in the box and wait for it to capture.          iOS_Barcode Field_Captured.png

Once the barcode has been captured you will see the screen go back to your form and the barcode field will be populated with the code.


Press and hold on the barcode field if you want to manually type the code. If you want to prevent users from manually entering a barcode, use the Read Only field setting.
