Project Description


This project is for a Windows Phone 8 developer. Here's what I need:

Currently using Zxing (open source barcode scanner) on an Android app of mine and I need the same or similar barcode scanner to be implemented into a Windows Mobile based app. The app itself is 100% WebBrowser based - meaning it is strictly pulling in a dynamic webpage from my server. The page it pulls in would contain variables appended onto the URL your app generates. Meaning, lets take the user's current GPS coordinates for example. The app would determine where the user is via GPS and append those coordinates as variables on this URL as follows:

[url removed, login to view]

This URL is what would be loaded upon opening the app, so we'd want to gather all the prerequisite variables first then load that URL as the next step.

Another example: When a user scans a barcode, it would take the string and append that too to this URL as follows:

[url removed, login to view]

Pretty simple, yes?

Everything would be accessed via a javascript call initiated within the main WebBrowser of this app. Meaning, I would be pulling a webpage into the WebBrowser, and if I initiated a javascript alert to activate the barcode scanner I would need your code to intercept that alert (do not display the alert to user) and take action based on the text of that intercepted alert. Presumably this would just make use of simple "IF" statements such as "IF alert contains BARCODE" (start the barcode scanner) or "IF alert contains GPS" (turn on the GPS and cache the current location)

I'm looking for clean, well commented code so that I may learn from the source code. That's it!

IF INTERESTED: I will have ongoing work available building various features upon this app. I pay promptly and am easy to work with (check my reviews!)
