The dictionary in 9.5.1 Indy indicates mergeAVCam is ios and mac. Thanks for clarifying it is not mac.
Can you tell me the list of bar code types that mergAVCamBarcodeTypes() would return in ios? That list is not in the dictionary.
Am hoping that I can build something for Android and iOS that can exchange data between those devices using QR codes (assuming QR codes are supported by ios for scanning).
