  • problems with automation procedure

    Hello,
    i have a question how i can automate some features.

    Attached is the grid i produced.

    My problem at this point is.
    This application is used with a Bluetooth Barcode-Scanner.
    The first scanner field (Scan for prod amount ) made a substr. on the barcode to extract the production amount and writes this onBlur in the field (production amount) and sets the field (start time). Itīs configured that the cursor is then activ in field ( sscc_barcode ) to get the 2nd barcode.
    So far so good is it working !

    My problem now is, that the customer is scanning the barcode a few meters away, and has to scan about 15 barcodes straight ahead.
    At the moment he has to walk back after the 2nd. scan - save the data - push button for new entry- walk to the palletts to scan the next barcode.

    So my question is: how can i create an onBlur event when he left the 2nd. barcode to save the data open a new dataset and set the focus for the new entry on the first field !

    Any ideas in the world ?

      May be i did not catch the problem, but i think you are going the wrong way.

      when you catch the first barcode, the scanner is set to send a tab, too. So you are able to calc the otherfield needed. That seems the point you are. In that blur field you can also use a sql-insert command to your database.

      If you want to show the 'old' values to the customers, to confirm him what he already scanned, you can use a multiline text field, where you can line up the rows already done,

        Hello Eric
        thx for your answer.

        No this is not my problem.
        The problem is that the user is far away from the PC and donīt want go back after every scan to say UPLOAD and then NEW ROW.
        Iīm looking forward to eliminate the two buttons for a new row, doing that onBlur after the second scan.

          He does not need to. If you catch the event by onblur or onchange, you can do the rest by PHP in the ajax-event. Doing the SELECT/INSERT/UPDATE command and initialize the form from there. No matter where the user is, he is just needed for placing the scanner on the barcode ...

            Hello Eric, to come a little bit closer:
            I need a new row !
            After all scans he will come back to the PC have a look at all scanned rows and will fire a START Button which indicates the start of the production.
            so my intention was to automatically create a new line after the second scan, so that the user could have a look at all scanned rows, not only for the last he done !

              The barcode reader is something that the backup software typically uses to identify which tape it is dealing with.
              So typically your backup software can already natively read the barcode and therefor you don't need any other software.
              The linked barcode reader is probably for reading a barcode that was provided via a picture (from a scanner or camera). This has nothing to do with the barcode reader that can be part of a tape library.

                After every scan i confirm the row and put the focus on the new one... just a little JS
