Camera usage after calling `barcodescanner.stop();`

See original GitHub issue

Hi there,

Thank you for providing this awesome library!

In my app, it seems that the camera always stays on after starting a barcode scanner. Even after I call barcodeScanner.stop(). Is this the expected behavior? Will it drain the battery?

If it’s not the expected behavior I might have another piece of my code that activates the camera.

@EddyVerbruggen Just a point in this issue that might be relevant for someone or maybe a fix.

When the IOS BarcodeScanner vue component is turned off via v-if/else, you will not be able to stop it from scaning even changing the pause variable… it’s just a thought, i didn’t tested far to be sure… I changed it to a v-show and the pause attribute worked.
