Barcode Reader Input
Control character sequences before and after the barcode information notify your Siebel application that input is from a barcode reader, as follows:
- Ctrl - \ is the prefix signalling that the next input will be from a barcode reader.
- Ctrl - / is the suffix signalling that the barcode reader input has ended.
Any programmable barcode reader that can be configured to send this prefix and suffix before and after the barcode can be used with Siebel Field Service's barcode automation functionality. To program the scanning preamble into a barcode reader, refer to the user manual or product reference guide provided with the barcode reader.
