    Hi everyone Richard Carlton here in this video we're going to be discussing barcode scanning devices with your FileMaker database now this scan device here we've used a lot with Mac and Windows and it would probably work on iOS device but that was not really our intent the easiest implementation of laser barcode readers is to have a scan device that's actually attached to your Mac or Windows computer and the way it works is that for those who have not done this with FileMaker yet is that you're actually going to have a script this is a field on your screen you're gonna have a button up here that says something like
    scan now or something like that going to press the button what that does is basically put the cursor into this field so it's blinking and then you use the wireless barcode scanning device to go out and capture it and it beans it to the computer like it was a keyboard like someone typed it really high speed on the keyboard which is why it's so cool looks and acts like a keyboard the computer thinks it's the keyboard and so then what happens is this device types out the the string of information and then it puts a return character behind it and so it goes abc15 31 whatever and then it puts a return character and what we do
    is in the database we actually go into the inspector we say allow the field to navigate forward by using the return key and that actually allows FileMaker then to note to jump to the next field so then what we have is a return key that makes it go forward right and then we put a script trigger on this object on object exit is a good one and so when it exits it runs a script to determine if it was a valid scan etc.

    FIlemaker always in the lead here, thanks to Richard Carlton. Any chance for a link? I couldn't find that cool yellow looking one on Amazon. There was a 2100 and a 3100., but not this 4001b version.
