Re: Can't figure out scanner
With most barcode readers you need to configure it before you can use it, this is usually done via a barcode book whiich configures everything that the gun can do....everything from how it communicates with the pc, to the types of barcodes it can scan

Hi,The easiest way would be to print out the control code for <tab> <enter> and scan them after you barcode is scanned. As far as i know its not possible to have two post-emble's and to alternate between the two. The other and far harder way is to have the text input fields on your program to deliver the correct <tab>, <enter> when you exit the text field.
There is not a barcode to simulate the enter key. You have to program the scanner to add the C/R (carriage return) to the end of the data that it sends. This is just a simple programming step. The users guide that came with the scanner will have a section in it with barcodes to scan to program the unit to perform differently. Each model scanner is a little different but the process is about the same. Enter programming mode, scan the C/R barcode, exit programming mode. Now when you scan the barcode the scanner will automatically add the "enter" for you.
I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.
Print Adobe pages 128 and 129 of 302 of the M2000 Series Product Reference Guide and scan the "Scan Options" "Data Suffix" and "Enter" barcodes. The scanner will give two beeps after the first barcode, two beeps after the second and a warble after the third programming (Enter) barcode.
the metrologic scanner you are talking about has a barcode in the maual under the keyboard wedge section it is called stand alone keyboard this will cure your problem when you scan it.
the reason being it fools the scanner into thinking there is a keyboard connected.
hope this helps
