There is a barcode format, for example PDF 417, which I would like when the survey started, this format would be the default format to scan without the user having to select it.

Hi Marco Amaya‌. It is not possible to control which barcode format will be used by default. Users need to select the format first. The user preference will be remembered by the app.  If you feel strongly about this please submit an enhancement request to Esri Technical Support and create a new GeoNet Idea. It seems reasonable that the owner of a survey could set the default barcode format for a barcode question.   May be through the bind::esri:style column in XLSForm.

Gracias Ismael por la respuesta,  me parece bien que el fieldworker tenga la opcion de cambiar estandard del código de barra que quiere leer pero en este caso solo será uno tipo de codigo  ( documento de identidad nacional) y la solicitud va por que aveces  el personal esta disperso en el todo el territorio y no son muy tecnicos que digamos. 

Thanks Ismael for the answer, it seems good to me that the field worker has the option to change the standard of the barcode that he wants to read but in this case it will only be one type of code (national identity document) and the request is sometimes the staff is dispersed throughout the national territory and they are not very technical and the more details they do not need to know the more they are under control

regards
