On mobile platforms, HTML5 is not only supported by web browsers, such as Safari, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, but also web view UI component that used for building native apps. The benefit is apparent that any developer who is familiar with web programming could easily create excellent mobile apps for Android and iOS. Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK provides .NET APIs for Windows. You can implement a barcode reading module on server-side (IIS), and detect barcode images that captured from any mobile devices using HTML5. The article will illustrate how to make a mobile barcode reader based on B/S (Browser/Server) architecture.
In my daily life, I enjoy taking photos with my smartphone and uploading them to various websites. So I started thinking, “Is it possible to implement these functions in a web browser?” Although Dynamsoft ImageCapture Suite allows us to capture images from a webcam, it is designed for a desktop App development on windows and Mac, not for mobile platforms. Fortunately, the new HTML5 SDK is capable of uploading local images or captured images to web servers. Everything becomes easier if we have a mobile web browser, like Chrome, which is fully compatible with HTML5.
