Concatenate barcodes

Hello all,

 

I am planning on using the barcode scanner functionality within my app, however need some help with this:

App users will have barcode scanners to scan several items in quick succession. Each barcode should be captured, in a way that makes the user experience as easy as possible.

 

I see two options here, any suggestions would be highly appreciated:

 

  1. Concatenate scanned barcodes to generate a string like “2766610; 2766612; 2766614” ... how would I write the syntax to do that?
  2. Capture each barcode in a separate textbox (as shown below). This is problematic for user experience though since the user needs to select each text entry field before being able to scan the barcode… unless there is a way to automatically jump to another text entry field?

 Overall I am also open to other ideas! Smiley Happy

Hi @Anonymous,

 

You could add a button control and set its OnSelect property to:

Collect(C,{Test:Barcode1.Text})

And add a Gallery/Data table control to show this "C" collection.

I just tested and this works for me.
