We need a clearer understanding of how you have designed your database and exactly what should take place when you scan a bar code. I am guessing that you have an invoice and that each time you scan a bar code, one new line item record with the product ID from the bar code label entered should be created.
That sound right?
And have you seen this thread on automating the bar code scan? Need help writing script to integrate barcode scanning
I am using Invoice Starter Database. Currently, I have a Wasp scanner connected via bluetooth to ipad. When selecting product id on invoices tab I am able to scan the barcode and it looks into Product database and enters in appropriate data. It will not automatically advance to the next line item. I have to again select the product id then scan. I did look at the post you mentioned but I think due to my lack of scripting via Filemaker Is where my issues lies.
The second issue I am running into is that I need to set-up similar behavior when I select "company id" and scan the company barcode for that company listing to populate, all is it doing currently is displaying numberically the barcode that it is scanning.
Sorry, but my experience has been with a different hardware setup--a USB connected scanner funcitoning in KeyBoard emulation mode so my suggested thread does not apply to your setup. You may want to review the threads in the FM GO forum for posts on scanning barcodes in FM GO.
