This is what I am trying to do:
I was wondering if someone could take a look and see what needs to be changed to be able to read our barcodes? if you can made the changes and send the VI as an attachment, I can retest to see if this works at my end.
Is there a reason you are doing this with a camera instead of a 2D barcode reader? I don't have any experience with reading 2D barcodes with an image, because any time it was suggested I just suggested using a 2D barcode scanner. In the end that is the hardware that needs to be able to scan the barcode, so even if we took a great picture, and did some image processing to clean it up and was able to read it, but the barcode scanner can't read it then I'm not sure it matters that the camera can read it.
We have a bunch of these cameras lying around from old tools. It helps to use this instead of spend more $ and buy more parts. If NI has provided sample code, why are their examples not working? let alone for my image - it does not seem to work for 9/10 of their images (it only works on one) - so what am I missing?
Regardless, the goal here is to use the existing stuff we have instead of buy more items.. so, I have provided a shot of my barcode that hopefully someone can use to show me how the VI decodes it.
