Inspired by the QR code reader question - what about a QR code reader QML element for the Silica components ?

It would be basically just a normal Camera element with QR code detector, that would fire a signal once a QR code was detected, returning the detected payload. Like this, all Silica using apps could seamlessly integrate QR code functionality, enabling many useful uses (transferring notes, links, POIs, game achievements, contacts, WiFi passwords, visit cards, etc.) without extra effort for the application developers. :)

On a related note, something like this seems to be already available in the Cascades QML components for the BlackBerry 10 platform.

Possible resources for implementing QR code reader element for Silica:

QZXing- QtQuick 2.0 plugin for reading QR codes, 2D barcodes and many other formats based on the zxing library: https://github.com/dplanella/qzxing

BTW, actually already works on Sailfish and is being used by the QRScany application.

Now the first applications occur (sailotp) which really need this

Hi there, SailOTP developer here. SailOTP is currently in QA for the store, it's currently only available on openrepos until QA has done its job. I would really welcome such a component, since it would be reinventing the wheel over and over for different applications otherwise.

To me this is the HOW part of the QR code reader question ... I would mark it as DUP to be honest.
