Question about Symbol LS2208-7AZK0100S Handheld
I'm trying to add tab functions within a barcode, supported by Code 39 Extended. When I add the 'shifted' characters the scanner spits it out as '$I' instead of 'Ctrl I' or as '+B' instead of 'b'
I've made sure several times that I've scanned the barcodes to set the scanners to 'Convert Code 39 to Full ASCII' and tried with Function Key Mapping as Enabled as well as Disabled, all with the same results.
What's killing me is I know the barcode itself is ok, as there's a Wasp scanner we have that produces the correct results.
Any help into what I may be missing would be greatly appriciated.
P.S. Some of the scanners are attached via Keyboard wedge, and others by USB, but have the same results too.
The barcode must be a Code 39 barcode, not a Code 39 Extended or Full ASCII barcode. The Enable Code 39 Full ASCII must be scanned from the Symbologies section of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide (page 186 of 342). The Enable Function Key Mapping barcodes would have to be scanned if you are seeing something other than the tab happen when you scan into your application. In Word, for instance you will see the italics enable/disbled whenever the $I is encountered in the barcode.
As for the Covert to Code 39 Full ASCII- that is for Wand and Scanner emulation. The setting was having no effect because you were not connecting to either of these hosts.
