Enabling Barcode Scanning in Siebel Handheld
Before using the barcode scanning feature, you must add the following parameter value in setup.ini:
EnableBarcode = Y
NOTE: In the event that your handheld application is not preconfigured to enable barcode scanning, you must make an Application Event Services entry in Siebel Tools.
To enable barcode scanning
- Navigate to Application object, and then select Siebel Service for CE.
- Expand to Application Event Services object, add a new entry with the following:
Name: SHCE Core Barcode Service
Event Name: HHCE_Start
Business Service: SHCE Core Barcode Service
If you are going to scan barcodes, you need to associate the scan trigger with a button on the handheld device. This task may not apply to some rugged devices because those devices may have an embedded scanner and a specific button to scan barcode.
