    You will create an event handler for your qr scanner. In the event handler get the qr code then use search() or column()search() to search for the code.

    can you create a working example ?

    Assuming you are using the same scanner instascan library as in the blog you would do something like this:

        scanner.addListener('scan',function(content){
            table.search( content ).draw();
    
            // Or for a specific columns search
    
            table.column( 1 ).search( content ).draw();
        });
    

    The docs explain the content parameter:

    content: Scanned content decoded from the QR code.

    To build an example would take a bit of time. If you want to build an example that reflects the solution you want to deploy we can help with the Datables specifcs.
