Barcode data triggering a script


     Hi all,

     I have a testing database that allows users to "click" an onscreen test button so they can then scan asset numbers, serial numbers and and other information into fields as required....pretty straight forward and all working fine.

     However the team operating it has said they always have to go back to the pc and click on test. What they would like is the ability to scan the word *test* (Code 39) when there are no fields active. (ie after the completion of a test).

     I have tried using "onlayoutkeystroke" but cannot seem to work out a way for a script to interpret the full word (ie I can only get it to trigger off one letter!)

     Any thoughts?
