I have an entry form (popup screen) with three fields for Part Number (text entry), Lot Number (text entry), and Quantity (integer entry). The values are scanned from a USB connected bar code reader which inputs as a stdio character stream (same as a keyboard). The barcodes have a carriage return on the end and this is needed for other systems that also use the same barcodes, so I can’t change the barcodes. I need a way to automatically advance focus from one field to the next after each barcode is scanned. Before Ignition I was using a VBA form in the previous HMI and it auto advanced to the next field. Any ideas?
Also, how do I change the tab order of objects on a screen? The present tab order is Part Number, Load Button, Cancel Button, Lot Number, Quantity. I need the order to be Part Number, Lot Number, Quantity, Load button, Cancel button.
Do you have a similar solution for perspective, too? We are using a USB barcode scanner and the operator does not have access to PC or keyboard and the numeric fields have to advance focus automatically.
