Does the external app accept a URL protocol?
I had a look for the documentation but it goes to the GitHub repository and I dont have much experience with GitHub yet, so I dont know if I am looking in the right place or not. The website is, Pdf417 by MicroBLINK and it is for a scanner that can read the PDF417 barcode font.
I would need to be able to launch the app, take the picture of the PDF417 barcode and then return the text that it generates back to FileMaker. The text it generates is easy enough to sort through and put into the relevant fields, its launching the app and getting the text into FileMaker that I am a little clueless on at the moment.
This is not an independent app. It's a framework you install, attached to the app where you want to do the scanning. You might be able to integrate it with the iOS SDK for Go. You'd need to be able to do the XCode to have it talk to the Go database, and I have no idea if that's possible.
Sorry, but this is out of my wheelhouse.
Thanx for the input. It is also out of my knowledge scope at the moment
I will have to keep digging to see if I can find a solution for my client.
