Simple Barcode Scanner Question



   I'm new to PowerApps and have, what I think is a super simple question. I am creating an app to track quality issues and want the user to be able to barcode scan the part number into a text input field.  However, for the life of me, I can figure out how to pass the scanned data into the text input field. I'm OK with whatever is in the field already being overwritten.  I've search the internet high and low and found a million examples but nothing quite as simple as what I want to do.  To be clear, I've attached a pic.  All I want to do is pass the scanned data into the "Part Number" text input box (see attached pic).

You should set the OnScan property of the scan button to this: Set(scanNumber,BarcodeScanner1.Value)


and then the label where you want the part number to show up you need to set the property item to 'scanNumber'.


That should do the I think
