What is the iOS equivalent to 'Numeric Enter'

For years, I've programmed barcode readers for use with FileMaker Pro on Mac to append the 'Numeric keypad {Enter}' character to any scan. This has the same effect as clicking the [OK] button or pressing [Continue] and so instructs a paused script or dialog waiting for input to continue without recourse to the mouse or keyboard. I believe this also works with Windows. But I cannot achieve success by doing this for FileMaker Go 12 (or 11) running on iOS.

 

Am I missing something simple, or is there a different character suffix required to append to get iOS to continue a script after a scan, please?

 

Kind regards
