integration Barcode Scanner and web client

Postby danielebrizi » Wed Oct 08, 2014 6:55 pm

Hi guys,
my name is Daniele and I'm Italian.
I'm quite new to using Servoy, I must implement a solution that it allows to fill directly servoy field on web client form after barcode scanning.

Can you give some indications to integrate barcode scanner and Servoy web client ?

Thanks

Ciao Daniele,

We are using barcode scanners to scan ISBNs with SmartClient. As far as I know the only thing the barcode scanner does is to put the scanned ISBN in the currently selected field in Servoy. It is no different from a user typing or pasting in the ISBN. The integration with the barcode scanner is handled by the PC. So, I guess that would work fine in Servoy web client as well.

Hope this helps,

Hi
Christian is correct, this is exactly how it works in web-client, the scanner is effectively the same as a keyboard.

Cheers
Gordon

There are also serial port barcode scanners out there...

Indeed our solution uses Motorola DS9208 very effectively which are USB's into Mac's. It scans most popular bar codes and we are using it with QR codes off mobile phones.

Welcome to the forum!

+1 for Christian's explanation.

We (our customers, actually) successfully use Unitech MS912 Bluetooth bar code scanners (about the size of a pack of gum and no wires) in both smart- and web-client applications. Wired bar code scanners work, too. There is nothing you have to do to integrate the bar code scanner with Servoy.

Hi.
I have a solution using a simplified web client that runs on iOS using an app called iCody that supports displaying normal web pages, but when you enter a form field (or Servoy field), you can use the camera on the iOS device to scan a barcode (in my case a QR code) into the Servoy field and it can automatically 'tab' (move) to the next field, causing an 'onDataChange or onFocusLost' event to fire.

I found this related topic on google, maybe it will give you some inspiration:

And for bar code scanner library, I found these two:
.net bar code reader library
asp.net web bar code recognize library

Best regards.
