Lock User KeyBoard entry

Lock User KeyBoard entry

Hi All,

What is the best approach to disable Keyboard entry and allow only barcode scanned entry mode only.

I am out of ideas after trying to use a hidden entry field.

Please help out


RE: Lock User KeyBoard entry

I use time limit to finish barcode scan. There is no way user can type 11 numbers in 200ms.

RE: Lock User KeyBoard entry


I like your approach. I will try it out.


RE: Lock User KeyBoard entry


Do you have a sample timer code. Should I place it on case event field() ?


RE: Lock User KeyBoard entry

I don't have access to code today. I think It was wery raw.


BCode STRING(15) ClearBCode BYTE Armed EQUATE(2) ---> WindowEvents AlertKey IF len(clip(Bcode)) > 0 AND NOT ClearBCode ClearBCode = TRUE END ---> WindowEvents Timer (200ms) IF ClearBCode IF ClearBCode = Armed ! clean on 2nd timer loop CLEAR(BCode) ClearBCode = FALSE ELSE ClearBCode = Armed END END

RE: Lock User KeyBoard entry
