Video from SkeletonKey about FMP Barcode Scanning
I have used barcode reader on my iPhone and also on my Mac using Movielicious. I am open for sugestions to get the best result.
I think you are using cameras to take a picture of the barcode and then sofware not part of FilMaker has to translate the pixel image into data.
I've worked with scanners before, but they were scanner hardware connected via USB to a computer. They scanned the barcode and input the data as text in "keyboard emulation mode" which meant that they were input just as though they had been rapidly typed in from the keyboard.
I have a Pheonix II hand bar code scanner that populates the barcode field correctly, but Filemaker does not then pre populate the other fields with the information. Does Filemaker require some plugin or additional software to work correctly. Other software such as QT does this with this scanner
We are using the pre selected file maker database, is this correct?
Any help appreciated.
