    I have a Android device with a built in barcode scanner, not a camera. In the documentation it mentions about using AIDL files. Am I able to use these in B4A to operate the scanner.

    Failing that I saw text relating to intents.

    Is the barcode scanner automatically broadcasting using an Intent and can I consume this without using an SDK?

    Thanks, Colin

    Maybe yes. Looks like.

    Check Intent Filters - Intercepting SMS messages in the background
    try to change then intentfilter to the one needed by the Scanner. "com.zkc.scancode"
    If a Intentfilter does not work (i guess it should) you also can try to use Broadcastreceiverlib and setup a BCR.
