Native Camera Scanning API: Requirements

To run successfully, this sample demo requires the following:

Kiosk Pro Enterprise, version 7.8 or later

While the JavaScript included in this code sample is compatible with earlier versions of Kiosk Pro, those versions require a different 'kiosk_functions.js' file to access this functionality.

For live projects, we highly recommend hosting the 'kiosk_functions.js' file with your own files, whether they are placed on a server or stored locally on the iPad, and checking the app's change logs before updating. The 'kiosk_functions.js' file referenced in the sample may be updated or moved without warning - if you are referencing this file directly, this would prevent your kiosks from working correctly.

To run the demo on earlier versions of the app, generate the 'kiosk_functions.js' for that version from the settings menu under 'JavaScript API > Generate API Functions File'. Transfer the file from the device using iTunes so you can place it where you need it, then change the reference in the sample code to point at the file.

Access to the Camera

Kiosk Pro will request permission the first time it attempts to access the camera - if this permission is denied, the app is unable to re-request access for approximately 24 hours due to iOS restrictions. It is possible to allow or restrict access to the camera through the iOS 'Restrictions' menu, which can be checked by going to: Settings > General > Restrictions. This type of restriction can also be enabled via MDM (mobile device management) profile and Apple's Configurator app.
