How to automate LS9208 Symbol Barcode Scanner in FileMaker Pro 11 Advanced

Post

 Hi guys,

I am preparing a simple TimeStart and TimeEnd database for the Technical Training School students.

I have two tables: Student and AccessLog table and having a working relationship. LS9208 scanner was also properly connected to the computer.

Tables have their own respective fields and its works fine now, keeping time of each student entry in/out in the AccessLog table.

The Student table used the global field (gStudentNumber) to wait and scan the entries barcode.

I used script trigger OnObjectEnter/OnObjectExit to automate the script, at the same time assigned enter/return in the inspector behavior but still it doesn’t work. The scanner read the barcode automatically and it stop there and need to hit the enter key before it process the script.

Thanks and waiting for any suggestions. More power FM.
