Barcode reader using Device Control on Android wrapped app
We are using a bluetooth barcode scanner with a wrapped iPad app. The barcode scanner pairs with the iPad and acts as an entry device, similar to an external keyboard. Fron the iPad app perspective you just need to have the focus in the field that receives the code – then you scan and the code appears in the field. We then use a combination of an evAfter event and a timer object to take the scanned code and use it in a database lookup. The camera on the device is not used at all in the process.
