Ionic Aztec scanner

Hey, I made a barcode scanner using the
I am able to scan barcodes and qr codes, but I couldnt figure out how I could make it scan aztec.

Here is the code of my “home.ts”

import {Component } from '@angular/core';
import {NavController } from 'ionic-angular';
import {BarcodeScanner} from 'ionic-native';
import {Platform} from 'ionic-angular';
import {ScanPage} from '../scan/scan';

  selector: 'page-home',
  templateUrl: 'home.html'

export class HomePage {
   private barcodeText:String;
   private barcodeFormat:String;
   private platform:Platform;	
   private navController:NavController;
  constructor(public navCtrl: NavController,platform:Platform){
  		this.platform = platform;
        this.navController = navCtrl;
  		console.log('scannig product barcode');
        this.platform.ready().then(() => {
            BarcodeScanner.scan({"formats" : "aztec"}).then((result) => {
                if (!result.cancelled) {
					this.barcodeText = result.text;
					this.barcodeFormat = result.format;
            }, (error) => {
            	console.log('error when scanning product barcode');

  		this.navController.push(ScanPage, {data: data});


export class BarcodeData {
    public text: String,
    public format: String
  ) {}

What is “aztec”? (besides an awesome old Counter Strike map…)

Also post your ionic info output please.

Aztec is similar to qr code, but more encoded. It is used for tickets in public transportation.

Are you trying this on Android or iOS? It looks like Aztec support is platform-specific.
