Problem

I have a problem, I have a scanner to read barcodes...

The problem is that I'm not near the computer when I scan the barcodes... so is there any way to run a script when a field changes ?

'Cause I often scan about 5-6 diffrent things and wanna save in separate places...

Is there any free plugin that can execute a script when I change or exit a field ?

Or do anyone have any other good solution ?

Yup. A lot of scanners allow you to attach a preable and postsript to what is scanned. The trick is to program the scanner to append a "command-1" or "command-2", etc. to the end of the scanned value. This can be used to trigger the first nine scripts in the ScriptMaker menu (must be checked to display). The neat way to do this is to use one script, say "Command-1", and have the script test Status(CurrentLayout) and/or Status(CurrentFieldName) to branch to the correct operation. This way a one-time programming of the scanner can become context sensitive to the layout and field you are dealing with. Most often the scanner is programmed by scanning barcodes in the manual that came with it.

Great ideas, thanx...!

But one problem though, how do I generate a barcode that is ctrl-1... ?

I have read the manual for the scanner carefully but haven't found anything about commands like that...

The scanner is by the way a Intermec 1802SR...

I'm really glad you're trying to help me on this one!

(Sorry for my bad english by the way!)

Well, my scanner included a cd with a software called easyset... but I think it only works for intermec scanners though.. =(

So now when I scan it always trigger ctrl+1 directly after the barcode.. I still haven't found out a way to generate a barcode that only triggers ctrl+1 when I scan it...
