Recommendations for using a barcode scanner in a Perspective view

I am looking for recommendations regarding using a module for barcode scanning in a Perspective window.

Perspective has a built-in barcode scanning component that listens to keyboard wedge type activity and can buffer a result based on a regex pattern or prefix and suffix characters.

I did not see a listener anywhere. Which component are you talking about?


Are you sure you are in Perspective and not Vision? It is not a 3rd party module, Perspective - Barcode Scanner Input - Ignition User Manual 8.1 - Ignition Documentation (

Yes I see it now. I have 5 designers open for different plants and thought I was on Perspective for the one I was referencing. Thanks
