  2. Hey all, this time I created two functions that generate a BMP file with a code-128 barcode. It's more complicated, despite being shorter than the previous (EAN13), and it also has to generate a variable-length BMP file. There are some hacks, like the generation of a little-endian number for the BMP header, but overall it seems stable. I tried uploading it to Brian Dunning's website but it didn't give me the link. I'll post it here, and if there are problems, please PM me. /** * ===================================== * BarcodeCode128B_BMP_380px ( string ) * * PURPOSE: * Ge
  3. I designed a FM Go app that uses a bluetooth scanner (Socket CHS 7). I can't find the way to control the active keyboard (scanner or ios). I tried the "Enable touch keyboard" script step but if I hide the keyboard, I loose the focus on the field that must get the scanned code, so it's like having no keyboard. That seems to be the problem: https://community.filemaker.com/thread/136708 a bug not fixed yet? So far the only way to hide the ios keyboard without loosing field focus is to turn off the ios keyboard is from the scanner itself, clicking twice the power button. Once the active keybo
  4. We have for many years (of forgotten and unknown reasons) put a zero in front of all 12-digit bar codes so that all bar codes in our FileMaker database appears as a 13-digit code. Our products in the database are from suppliers from all parts of the world and some are using EAN, while others use UPC. I need to separate them, so they will reflect the original barcodes (UPC (12) / EAN (13)). We have approximately 33,500 items in the database. How do I do it?
  5. Hello, I am extremely new to Filemaker. I've been trying to learn it but time always dictates. I am trying to create what I believe is a simple database. What I am trying to do is to have a very basic system to track parts usage by our mechanics by either barcode or part number. Basically the mechanic would come up to the computer. Enter a unit #, worker order #, date, part #(either by manual entry or upc.) and qty. Then I would like to be able to print a report in the morning that will display Unit #, work order #, date, part # and qty. I can then take this information and enter it in
  6. I developed a solution which utilises the barcode reader function. This worked perfectly in FMGo 14 on an iPhone 6 Plus. I upgraded to FMGo 15 but at the same time made a few programming changes, although not to the script containing the 'Insert from Device function'. On activating the script, the camera would activate and the barcode would be read successfully but, on a later occasion, the camera would activate, but not trigger on the same barcode as before and the camera would remain in scan mode unless cancelled. Thinking this was due to the changes I made, I spent hours trying to overcome
  7. i have a script to find and add barcode if not available, but, the problem is, it is not automatically add new barcode, if the find result is not available, any suggestion about this script? i want to to find barcode through iphone camera, if not available, it will automatically add the new barcode. thank you script.tiff
  8. Hello, I am gonna describe a scenario where total automation needed using only barcode scan, please bear with me: I am creating operator timesheet layout for product lifecycle in list-view. Each operator has a list of unique barcodes(printed sheet) for each production function. Every activity(function) of print production is assigned code (barcode) that represents function type as well as operator name: For eg. if John is working on new plates function for Press he'd scan barcode 301-1 but if Marc is working on the same function , he'd scan 301-2 , Now '301' represents new
  9. Hiya, 1st of all - I have personally refrained from posting for help on a forum as I wanted to try and read, learn and solve my problems using trial and error! I am learning the FMP platform from scratch and am currently in week 2 of it. My question relates to a file I have attached to this post - the products area. For each product I have a number of 'size options' within it and each with their own unique SKU (stock keeping unit). Each SKU needs its own barcode. My job now is to produce a method to easily assign an 'available' barcode to a specific SKU. Barcodes are purchased
  10. I have a class attendance solution that I've been running with the help of FMGo 13 for some time. The solution uses a bluetooth barcode scanner and an iOS device to scan a student id and track attendance etc. The bluetooth connection to the iOS device has proven the weakest link in that it occasionally drops and requires re-pairing the device. While not rocket science to re-pair the scanner it's not ideal for the end user. With the advent of FMGo 14 one can now utilize the onboard iOS camera for scanning, however, I'm having difficulty creating a loop to keep the camera active. I would like th

  13. I use FMSP from Rcconsulting. really love that product and very grateful to Richards and his team. The above script scans bar-codes items (my products) for sales. Now the issue is this, each scan of the same item suppose to add an increment in the quantity of the item and not adding the item on a new row thus having multiple lines of the same item. basically one needs to manually enter the quantity of the products after scanning instead of continuous scanning with the scan gun. Is there a way this can be fixed? I really need help.
  14. Version 12 broke the input streams for barcode readers. Best of my knowledge that didn't get fixed then. I never found a solution. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet on 14. My new job has limited use for barcodes, but we do a little. Does anybody know if this has been fixed in 13 or 14?
  15. I recently created an inventory solution from scratch (actually from video tutorials and from the contributions of the good people on this forum). It has been a fantastic project for me and I really appreciate all your help. Right now, I want to integrate my barcode scanner, so that i can easily make sales for customers by just scanning the barcodes of the product items. The products have barcodes already printed on them. Please how do I go about it. I am not really good in scripting, but thats the fun part for me (its all about learning) I will be attaching a copy of my file shortly..
  16. Has anyone had success using the zxing library to read/decode bar codes with ScriptMaster ? I generate them just fine using the Barcode4J library. I think I am having dependency issues (take a pill...) and not much forward momentum getting it to work. Examples, suggestions or commiseration are greatly accepted. regards... Bob Minteer
  17. I am using the new barcode scan feature available in FM GO 13 and I can't seem to get it to work. My script step is: Insert from Device [Equipment Log::zBarcode; Type: Bar Code; Camera: Back; Resolution: Full] I have all the barcode types enabled and the barcode that I am testing with is Code39. The error that I get is "Specified field has inappropriate filed type". Equipment Log::zBarcode is a Text field. I tried changing it to a Container field to see if that would make a difference, but no luck. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks, Ryan
  18. Hello - I've hired an idiot. I mean - I hired this guy to manage our stock control and ensure that when a customer orders a product, the product is popped in a box and despatched out to the right address. Unfortunately the person I hired to complete this task was an idiot. We already have a neat FileMaker CRM solution for customers - so I figured I'd build a neat little stock control FileMaker database to help our new employee. I admit - I took it a little far. I drew some lines and made some calculations that would rotate and expand the lines to emulate code 39 barcodes so that
  19. Hi everybody, I am doing a POS system and I have 2 databases. The first one has the barcodes and descriptions of the products and the second one has the ordered products. I have a layout from which I would like to read the barcodes of the products and then add their information within the other database. To do it, I have a field through which I want to introduce the barcode. This barcode can be introduced handly or with a barcode reader. I have some problems to create the script to read the barcode. Handly: I write the barcode numbers, strike the enter key and a script "1" is starte
  20. Hey guys, I am trying to create a script that will preform a search and pull up a record in my FM database with a barcode scan from CMS Barcode. I have already setup CMS Barcode so that the barcode number imports into a text field in my database with a scan, however from there I am stumped. The script can't be that complex, and CMS only offers limited information. Any help would be appreciated! Tomio
  21. Running build 205 I loaded Barcode4j.jar and added the code from the pinned topic. Everything seems to work until I go to create a plug-in. I follow the plug-in steps and it returns a message saying the plug-in was created but it doesn't actually create anything. Figured maybe I needed to restart FMP12... After doing that I get errors related to registering my barcode module because it can't access the jar. Using the reload script will get everything running again but I can't create the plug-in and will run into the same registering issue on a restart. Any advice?
  22. dear forum,  i used this script in fm11 (image attached).  i used my database on my iphone with filemaker go. i had a button, when pushing it, it rans this script. opening a barcode scanner software and then returning the scanned result into the filemaker database in the search field. this way i was able to find a product in my database by scanning it with the iphone camera.  now i am using fm12. i pushed the SCAN button, but i get this error (error.jpg)  anybody has a idea why this error appears now?  sincerely, raitis   Â

If YES change the value of the field "Status" in the found record from "Inactive" to "Active" I need to validate the input to ensure that the format is excatly 13 digits (EAN-13 barcode).
