Scanner will beep after each successful scan. Take care not to scan any other barcodes than the ones mentioned. If you do accidentally scan a wrong barcode just start again.
Next, drop to a command prompt and scan a barcode (NOT one of the ones from the programming sheet) You should see something like this:
What you are looking for is that the scanner scanned a ^B before the barcode and it translates to a little smiley face character on the next line. If this is what you see, you have correctly programmed the barcode scanner.
Setting up your Barcode scanner in System Five is the last step. You must ensure that the device itself is properly configured with the Pre and Post amble characters that will not conflict with either System Five or the Windows (TM) Operating System. The Barcode Reader page in the Setup Wizard provides a method of using the actual device to input the configuration.
Assuming that your Barcode Scanner is properly configured, click [Read Barcode Scanner], scan any Barcode you have available and System Five will intercept the information from the scanner and fill in the Pre-Amble and the value of the Barcode you scanned. Click [Save Settings] to complete the process.
The [Default Pre-Amble Setting] button can be used to reset to the System Five default settings.
