    You can check our widgets page to see the available QR code related widget that we have.


    We have a specific QR code reader that you can find here: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/qr_code_reader. However, it seems like it was made on Flash.

    If you are a developer, you can check our API and developers page: http://developers.jotform.com/

    Let us know if you need more information on this.

    Apologies. Looks like there's no specific support page for that widget. You can also use the form's full source code. Here's a guide on how to get it: http://www.jotform.com/help/104-How-to-get-the-Full-Source-Code-of-your-Form 

    The current way that I see that this is possible is by doing the following:

    1. Embed the full source code on your platform (I presume you are embedding it on an Android device?).

    2. Make sure that the form has a text box or input field dedicated for the value that will be fetched from the QR code reader that you will make.

    3. Get a QR code reader plugin or if you can develop one using HTML5. Here's a QR code reader that I found that uses Javascript: https://github.com/LazarSoft/jsqrcode 

    4. Prepopulate the scanned value to the text box you have in your form.


    With that, you don't need to create another widget. I hope that gives you an idea on how to proceed.

    You need to paste the Javascript tags between the <head> tags, I would suggest you to paste it after all the code that the form has by default, I would like to share us other link about QR code reader, click here to get the details.
