Hi ZXing Experts,
I'm working on a program that calls the ZXing command line decoder (CommandLineDecoder.exe) to decode QR Codes. I'm using the
parameter to put the decoded value in a file, which my program then processes. It works very well! ZXing is a great tool! But a big problem is that it overwrites the clipboard while it decodes. Does anyone know how to stop it
from writing to the clipboard? If not, is there a developer who could add an option for this, perhaps a
parameter? I realize that some users do want it on the clipboard, and since it's doing that now as the default, having an option to turn it off seems like the best approach. That way, existing usage of it (where it's expected
to be on the clipboard) won't be affected.
I searched the forum before posting this and found this thread from a few years ago:
So it seems that it did not
overwrite the clipboard in the past and that there was an option called
(that was a better idea, imo). Since it was obviously changed since then, I recommend that the opposite option be implemented, that is,
(actually, it seems logical to me that if the
parameter is present, then the result should not be put on the clipboard).
I noticed in that thread this comment: "You can get the current source from the repository. You have to build your own version of the commandline tools." I'm afraid that's beyond me and am hoping that someone else is willing and able to do it. Thanks
very much, Joe
