Administering Barcode Settings for Siebel Handheld Applications
Siebel Handheld applications can scan and parse data from HIBC and UCC/EAN barcodes. Administrators can set up Siebel Handheld application to scan and parse any one-dimensional barcode and render the corresponding data in an applet. For example, if a control in a list applet is enabled for barcode scanning and the barcode scanned is valid, the Handheld application will parse the barcode, create a new record, and fill in the field with parsed data. In form applets, after the user scans an item, the data representing the item automatically populates the barcode-enabled field. In order to do this, Siebel Administrators must define the barcodes and how data will be parsed from these barcodes in the Barcode Administration view.
