Generate QR code using Google Chart API

The Google Chart API lets you dynamically generate charts with a URL string. You can embed these charts on your web page, or download the image for local or offline use.

Generate QR code using Google Chart API

QR codes are a popular type of two-dimensional barcode. They are also known as hardlinks or physical world hyperlinks. QR Codes store up to 4,296 alphanumeric characters of arbitrary text. This text can be anything, for example URL, contact information, a telephone number, even a poem! QR codes can be read by an optical device with the appropriate software. Such devices range from dedicated QR code readers to mobile phones.

With the previous exercise "Load ImageView with bitmap from internet", we can generate our own QR Code by changing of image_URL.

String image_URL="";

You can try to use the Chart Wizard to generate the URL of your image charts.
