Title

Barcode Scanner Script

Post

Hello,

I am trying to get a barcode scanner to integrate with Filemaker Pro (not Filemaker go).

The scanner reads the barcodes that I have created using a plug in. I can assume that the barcode has been read in successfully as there is a beep sound after each scan.

I have a tab character after each scan as I plan to loop through the scans and place them in successive records of the same field. There is a $ at the beginning of the first scan. I have the following script which is set up to run on the event "On layout keystroke". I have used the script debugger and the script is never invoked. can anybody help ? thanks

kind regards
