Scanning a PDF417 barcode from FileMaker Go

Has anyone been successful scanning a PDF417 barcode from FileMaker Go?

 

To date, it's my understanding that FileMaker Go does not support PDF417 because iPads at one time didn't have high enough resolution. The cameras have changed, but it seems FileMaker Go still doesn't support Insert Device PDF417.

 

As an alternative, I'm trying to use the only App in the App Store I could find that has a documented URL Scheme (PDF417 Pro has been removed from the App Store).

 

ScannrApp:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scannr/id880966829?ls=1&mt=8

 

Documentation:

http://scannrapp.com/scannr_url_scheme.pdf

 

Syntax Example:

Open URL "scannr://?callbackScheme=foo"

 

Calls the app but callback doesn't work:

Open URL "scannr://?callbackscheme=fmp://utm614113.local/PRMISUser.fmp12?script=paste_dl_scan"

 

Dynamic Open URL that calls the app but callback doesn't work:

Open URL "scannr://?callbackScheme=" & GetAsURLEncoded ("fmp://" & Get (HostName) & "/" & GetAsURLEncoded(Get(FileName)) & ".fmp12?script=paste_dl_scan")

 

Thanks in advance for any help you might provide,

Mike
