How to change text when scanning barcodes with Zxing via intent in Android?

Is it possible to change the prompt text that says "place the barcode inside the viewfinder..." when launching the Barcode scanner (zxing) via intent ?

Intent intent = new Intent("com.google.zxing.client.android.SCAN")


I want to have a prompt in my language, how should I do that?

Answer

Yes, plain and simple:

intent.putExtra("PROMPT_MESSAGE", "Your Text Here");
