Displaying the barcode focus area on the camera screen

Nov 21, 2011 at 3:02 AM

Hi there,

I am using the ZXing Silverlight library to scan barcodes. When I start my camera camputer task, it is difficult to know what area to place the barcode at. I see a rectabgle getting displayed when i tap or click on my screen on the phone. Is it possible to display some kid of indication to display the area on the camera where the barcode has to be scanned ?

Thanks very much. I appreciate any help.
