button to finish search
ok been trawling the internet for a fair while trying to come up with a solution
basicly im building a barcode scan system got pretty much everything down but im facing a problem when i fill out a find mode field i then need a script to run on the script trigger of keystroke enter to then effectivly finish the search and show found items so if there was a way of getting it to emulate a keystroke such as return it would be handy i just cant see how i can get from the find mode to found automaticly because im hopeing to remove the keyboard and mouse from the system and just have a barcode scanner as the only form of input
so it would go scan barcode, find records, export records, find mode,go to field, etc so on and so forth
cheers in advance
You'll need to research your scanner to see how to do this on your particular model, but scanners can usually be configured to append text to both the beginning and end of the scanned text and this text can trip script triggers to automate the scanning process.
Here's a thread that describes the process:Need help writing script to integrate barcode scanning
