      Scan barcode and return value to FM pro 12

      Post

           I found this post :

           http://www.skeletonkey.com/blog/filemaker_go_barcode_scanning_with_pic2shop

           It opens an iPhone app which scans a barcode and retunrs the value back to FM - it was written for FM7 and does not seem to return the value back to FM once scanned.

           To open the app (which works):

             Open URL [ No dialog; "pic2shop://scan?callback=fmp7script%3A//%24/" & Get ( FileName ) & "%3Fscript%3DScan%26param%3DEAN"]

           To return the value (which does not work): we need this to return the value to populate a field in a new table & will access it via a portal:

           Show Custom Dialog ["EAN=" & Get(ScriptParameter)]

           Any help would be appreciated in getting it to work with FM 12.

           Thanks in advance,

           Rick.
