Continuing a Paused Script on Data Input from RFID Reader - ASCII Codes

Question asked by lematelot on Jul 2, 2014

I currently run a solution where a script is paused awaiting entry from a user, then the user enters the data and presses the ENTER key (on the numeric keypad) to un-pause the script and do calculations, before creating a new record ready for the next data entry, and so on.

 

The script woks fine for the keyboard entry but now I want to add the ability to get data from an RFID reader to input over USB - essentially a keyboard emulation. The reader says you can add an ASCII code to the end of the data string, and I am using ASCII code 10 for the ENTER key.

 

The data is entering into the field without problems, but that ASCII code is not triggering the script to un-pause and do the next steps.

 

Am I using the correct ASCII code ? (I have also tried ASCII 13 - the RETURN key - and this does not work either.)

 

Any hints as to what I'm doing wrong ?
