Script Steps for Scanning QR Codes

Hello, all! quick (..or maybe not ) question - can anybody please tell me what are the script steps for scanning a qr code? I've already incorporated in my database a "qr generator" of sorts with an option to print.

 

What are the script steps for scanning printed qr codes using the ipad's camera?

I saw something about using the "Insert from Device" script step but I'm not sure how to proceed from there...

 

And also, how would filemaker go about displaying the relevant specifications based on the scanned qr code?

Is there a script step that performs search based on the scanned qr code that would show a matching record? Or is it on a related table (QRCodeGenerate = QRCodeScanned) with other fields that are looked up values?

 

This is the first time I'm trying out the barcode options in filemaker and I'm kind of lost....

Any sort of guidance will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much as usual!
