Filemaker Go/Barcoding Setup


Hey all,


I'm trying to set up a barcoding solution that allows us to automatically locate records upon scanning with filemaker go. So far, I've configured the scanner (scanfob 2002) so that it inputs when a field is selected, but I can't seem to get an any script triggers to work. I think I've set them up correctly, but it seems to never take it. I've even configured the prefixes to correspond to the TriggerKeystroke function, but that doesn't seem to work no matter what I do. Here's an example of a script that I want to be run when an object is selected:

Enter Find Mode [Pause]

If [Code ( Get ( TriggerKeystroke ) ) = 13]

Perform Find

Exit Script [Result:False]

End If


In this case, I'm trying to simply get Filemaker to recognize the "Return" that my scanner is set up with as a suffix, but it won't do it.

From what I've gleaned off these forums, it seems as if everything should be working, but I've had no luck with either OnLayoutKeystroke triggers or these OnObjectKeystrokes. Could anyone help shed some light on this?
