Warning Older Docs! - You are viewing documentation for a previous released version of RhoMobile Suite.

NFCTagTechnology Class API

Use the NFCTagTechnology to connect to NFC tags and to determine their type.

As of Rhodes version 3.3.3, the Barcode, NFC, and Signature Capture APIs, as well as Rhom data encryption are removed from Rhodes. These features are only supported in Zebra RhoMobile Suite. If you wish to use these features, you will need to upgrade to RhoMobile Suite. Your application’s build.yml will also need to be modified to indicate the application type is ‘Rhoelements’. Additionally, a RhoElements license is required.

Enabling NFC

To use the NFC methods, you need to enable NFC on the Android device and ensure that the version is 2.3.3 or later. Do this by adding that capability to the build.yml file:

  version 2.3.3
  - nfc


The NFCTagTechnology class has several properties to determine the type of the NFC tag.

ISODEP = 'IsoDep'
MIFARE_CLASSIC = 'MifareClassic'
MIFARE_ULTRALIGHT = 'MifareUltralight'
NDEF = 'Ndef'
NDEF_FORMATABLE = 'NdefFormatable'
NFCA = 'NfcA'
NFCB = 'NfcB'
NFCF = 'NfcF'
NFCV = 'NfcV'
