Barcode scanning control reset

We are developing inventory apps by using PowerApps, for warehouse user to work efficiently, would like suggest to have barcode scanner reset funtion, currently, if barcode scanner bind with inputtext, after submit, there is no way to reset barcode scanner or binded inputtext. Also I also voted for the scan beep sound idea, those improvement will really help end user.

 

Thanks

Ok my solution to solve this is to use onHidden function on my screen,
then i wright this as a function:
barcode.text = ""

Its working for me because after scanning i always switch screen.

barcode.text = ""

@Anonymous: This is only a check for true/false you are doing there (read your code as "Is barcode.text equal to empty string?"). You can't directly set a value for (most) of the properties of a control in PowerApps

Hi @Anonymous, is this still working for you? I had similar setup as yours and was working fine, but sinc past few days, switching the screen is not resetting barcode control. Weird!

This would be a big help to folks building out scanning apps. Currently I am running into challenges with previous scans being applied to new records given the application setup I have. Resetting the control would allow for better use cases.

The new barcode scanner is brilliant, ability to scan QR codes is good.  Can't reset the control as the Reset function doesn't see the control as a "control", this is a definite must-have, as currently I can only scan a barcode that is different to the previous scanned.

This feature is a must-have. Its very cumbersome to use if you have to scan different items in sequence.

@tomguanMicrosoft have added an OnScan trigger now solving this problem entirely Smiley Happy...
