Deprecation Notice - Barcode scanning using intents in Clover Android SDK - April 20, 2017

Due to a recent ROM update on Clover devices to ensure a ​more ​reliable merchant experience, the Intents.ACTION_SCAN broadcast for barcode scanning in our Android SDK has been deprecated. ​ Apps should instead use​ the BarcodeScanner class for barcode scanning. The startScan() method supports passing in the same extra data used in the Intents.ACTION_SCAN broadcast. Please refer to the following sample code:

private static Bundle getBarcodeSetting(final boolean enabled) {
        final Bundle extras = new Bundle();
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_START_SCAN, enabled);
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_SHOW_PREVIEW, enabled);
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_SHOW_MERCHANT_PREVIEW, enabled);
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_LED_ON, false);
        return extras;
    }

    public void startBarcodeScanner(){
        final Intent intent = new Intent(Intents.ACTION_SCAN);
        intent.putExtras(getBarcodeSetting(true));
        sendBroadcast(intent);
    }

    public void stopBarcodeScanner(){
        final Intent intent = new Intent(Intents.ACTION_SCAN);
        intent.putExtras(getBarcodeSetting(false));
        sendBroadcast(intent);
    }
private static Bundle getBarcodeSetting(final boolean enabled) {
        final Bundle extras = new Bundle();
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_START_SCAN, enabled);
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_SHOW_PREVIEW, enabled);
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_SHOW_MERCHANT_PREVIEW, enabled);
        extras.putBoolean(Intents.EXTRA_LED_ON, false);
        return extras;
    }

    public boolean startBarcodeScanner() {
        return new BarcodeScanner(this).startScan(getBarcodeSetting(true));
    }

    public boolean stopBarcodeScanner() {
        return new BarcodeScanner(this).stopScan(getBarcodeSetting(false));
    }
