Hi,

I'm looking for a real simple template on capturing a barcode scan for windows phone.

I've found some resource on google but haven't managed to find any working code as yet!

I was hoping that some experts have already managed to get a simple barcode reader working and can help.

Many thanks

you're going to have to capture the image, and either
pass it to a webservice that will parse it for you,
use a native library that parses it try https://zxingnet.codeplex.com/

or you could always parse the image yourself (I wouldn't recommend it)
