How to setup a barcode scanning check out station

I have tried to setup a good barcode scanning system with Filemaker but it does not seem to work well.

What I am trying to do is setup a retail check out station system like at a grocery store. I want the cashier to scan barcoded items in quickly without any keyboard interaction between each item.

Right now when a barcode is scanned the stock number is read into the field but the cursor just sits in the same field and does not move to the next line item in my portal. The only way to get the cursor to move is to hit the TAB key on the keyboard. This slows down the check out process majorly if 100 items are being scanned.

Is this possible with Filemaker?

Thanks
