I’m building an application in Ignition that requires operators to scan their badge bar codes in to confirm ID. The issue I’m having is that in order to prevent an operator from typing in a code, as opposed to scanning one, I need to make the Text field designated for the badge scan entry to be invisible. So, in order for the scans to take place, focus and cursor must be set to this field when the popup opens, otherwise they will not find it.
I have tried many various methods found online, and none of them appear to work. Some give the field focus, however, it still will not take data from keyboard/Scanner without first being clicked on. Cannot believe this can be this difficult. Has anyone dealt with this, and if so, how did you get around it?
