This article explains the Code Scanner block that can be added as a block to design an app.
- Scanning QR Codes/Barcodes from any place and entering into a form

Editing the block

This is the text that goes below the input block to help the user.
Manual editing of the code
By default, the users can modify or input the values of the codes. This becomes important when the codes are not scannable or distorted. If you don’t want the users to modify the codes that are scanned by the camera, turn off the option “Allow user to input manually”.
Pull details from other Clappia apps
If you have uploaded some details associated with the scanned codes in another Clappia App, you can pull those details here to show to the user who is scanning the codes. For example, on scanning, the user might get a Product Code and if other details like Product Name, Category are uploaded along with the Code in another Master App, then we can show these details to the user.
Data Source App

This option shows if we have turned ON the Pull details from other Clappia apps. This should be the field in the other Clappia App which exactly matches with the scanned code.
This option shows if we have turned ON the Pull details from other Clappia apps. Here we can choose which all fields to pull from the other Clappia app to show to the user who is scanning the codes.
Tick this option if you want the user to compulsorily scan the code and provide some value.
