Title

Scanning Barcodes with FileMaker Go

Post

     Hello,

     I am fairly new to FileMaker, and am trying to design an inventory database for my university. 

     We have purchased iPads, and were wondering how to go about using them to scan barcodes that would then show the corresponding item on the database. I know this is possible using Pic2Shop or CNS Barcode, but I am not sure how to go about the coding/scripts. What I've read so far says your script must launch the Pic2Shop or CNS app, then scan the barcode, then input that information back in FileMaker Go.

     Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

     Thanks!
