Add items to dropdown from form load and or Barcode Scan

I have created a one screen tablet app that pulls data into a dropdown from a list when the app is opened. I also want them to use a barcode scan to select an item in that same dropdown.

 

Form loads: dropdown populated from a field in a SP list

Then the user wants to scan a barcode to search the SP list and then the dropdown is changed to that scan.

Hi @dmac73 ,

 

What the column type of the field in this dropdown control? I assume that it is a number column. And you have set the Items property of this dropdown control to:

Distinct(ListName,NumberFieldName)

 

Then please set below formula in the Default property to:

Lookup(ListName,NumberFieldName=BarcodeScanner1.Value,NumberFieldName)

 

Regards,

Mona
