Barcode Scanner Input feature


I have the ignition version 8.1.14 and I am looking to use a bar code scanner to input a code into a text box on the page. I have done some looking around and have found the Barcode Scanner Input tool under the manual. It says it is available on Ignition 8.0.5 but I cannot find it. Does anybody know why?

Also will this tool allow me to take the input of the barcode scanner and display it in a text box?

Many thanks!

The barcode scanner input component is for Perspective module only, it is not available for Vision. Most scanners can operate as a keyboard wedge, so just having a text box in focus, a scan will be typed in the text box. If you want a little more control with better ergonomics you’ll want the Sepasoft Barcode Scanner module.
