XMII/HTML Scan Input

Hello All,

Does XMII have the ability to use scanned data as input parameters on the irpt pages for mobile devices.

To Elaborate: I have a simple IRPT page with a text box and a button. When the user puts in an equipment number in the text box and submits a query is returned based on the input parameter. Now instead of typing in the equipment number, is it possible to scan (we have an intermec cn3 device) the number and can that scanned number somehow be used as the query parameter.

I'm not sure if this question belongs on the XMII forum or it may be more of an html/cn3 related question but any nudge in the right direction is appreciated.

    The function of a barcode input device is to decode the barcode into text and place that text wherever the cursor happens to be. So for example, in your web page, if the text cursor is in the input box and you scan in a barcode to that device, the scanner should convert the barcode to text and enter the decoded text in the input box. The user will then hit the button to perform whatever action.

    Also note that some barcode scanners can be configured to perform some action after each scan. So for example, depending on your barcode scanner, you could configure it to simulate a "Enter" command. This would allow the user to scan a barcode and then scanner would place the decoded text in the input box and then fire a Enter command (thus virtually clicking the button).
