Barcode running FM script

HI Folks,



We are looking to introduce barcode entry into our Filemaker solution.

We have set up a simple barcode entry database that will take the scan and perform various script triggers to react to the data content, that all seem to work fine.

But it all relies on the operator selecting the field within the database. 

We would like to have the scan happen automatically, that is the actual event of scanning the barcode would open the correct database, create a new record and go to the scan input field, irrespective of what was happening on the desktop at the time.


We are using Filemaker 14 with a Main server and clients and with hands free type scanners that are programmable.


Anyone cracked this issue yet ?
