Title

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.
