Disable Barcode input in RFUI screen field

Hi Experts,

We have an RF screen developed to enter remaining quantity in any storage bin during ZERO STOCK CHECK. Some times user instead of entering quantity manually he scans the Warehouse task barcode in that field. because of this Invalid values are being stored as available stock in bin.

Is there any way to disable Scanning of bar code into a particular field in RFUI screen?

Thanks,

Aswath.

    Hello,

    barcode scanning is equal to keystrokes, as far as I know there is no way how to know whether the user entered the value manually or by scanner.

    This is exactly the reason why barcodes should contain verification characters, so only designated fields can use the scanned value. It is recommended to use character based prefix, which can be converted to desired barcode for only specific fields, where the value can be used.

    Other option is to enhance the screen and validate the input. In case your barcode equals to warehouse task number, simply check the /scwm/ordim_o table.

      Hello Petr,

      Thanks for your valuable suggestion.

      Yes, actually we planned to validate the field after input and now we are incorporating the validation such that if the field value is more than certain threshold we are giving an error saying that its an invalid value. But I was checking a straight forward way of blocking scanning a barcode value into the field which pretty much solve the customer requirement. But i guess we have to go with the enhancement only.

    you can achieve via finding screen detail from ctr+shft+f1.

    then put that profile in validation customization and disable the required filed.

    for more details please find cookbook. I hope this will be very helpfull.

      Hi Suraj,

      Sorry if i was not clear before but my requirement is not to disable the field but to make it avoidable to Barcode scanned inputs. Other inputs from keyboard should not be disabled. Because the warehouse worker sometimes doesnot realize that the zero stock check screen is triggered for a particular storage bin after picking and he tries to scan another WT. So this WT no. goes and sits in zero stock check RF screen remaining quantity which gives implausible available quantity in that bin.

      Hope i am clear now.

      Regards,

      Aswath.
