Scan and Record Multiple Barcodes

Hi,

 

I'm creating an app where I would like to scan and record multiple barcodes. I need to be able to exit the barcode scanner in between scans as the barcodes won't necessarily be scanned continuously. Basically I need to scan a barcode, record to multiline text input then have the ability to scan additonal barcodes and have them record to the same multiline text input. 

 

Thank you

Re: Scan and Record Multiple Barcodes

Pretty straightforward and I just tested to verify.  Drop your scanner button onto your app and change the OnScan code to be similar to the following:

Set(gScanData,gScanData & Char(10) & BarcodeScanner1.Value)

You can optionally drop in an If() to check if gScanData is empty so you don't get a Line Break at the beginning of course.

Then add a MultiLine Text field and set the Default to be gScanData.
