Scanner Tags

This section includes tags that enable or disable the scanner or specific symbologies.

If the action name is Scanner and the action type is Enable or Resume, the scanner will be enabled when the page is first loaded. If the action type is Disable or Suspend, the scanner will be disabled when the page is first loaded.

The additional scanner action types supported by the Industrial Browser:

AutoTab

AutoEnter

AutoEnterAndTab

AutoTabAndEnter

NoAuto

The AutoTab, AutoEnter, and AutoEnterAndTab action types will enable the scanner and will cause the scan data to be followed by an enter or tab key (or both). The NoAuto action type will enable the scanner and will clear the scanner key value (if a value is specified by the configuration settings).

When the scanner state is changed (using Enable, Resume, Disable or Suspend), the scanner will stay in that state until some other action (such as a META tag or IDA action) changes the state or until the user changes sessions.

Enable and disable different scanner symbologies by using the symbology as the action name, and Enabled or Disabled as the action type. The symbologies supported by the Industrial Browser are:

AUSTRALIA_POSTAL CUECODE PLANET
AZTEC D2OF1ATA PLESSY
AZTECMESA D2OF5 POSICODE
BOOKLAND DATAMATRIX POSTNET
BRITISH_POSTAL DUTCH_POSTAL QRCODE

In addition to the listed symbologies, the value ALL_DECODERS can be used to enable or disable all the symbologies.

For example, to enable only UPCA use the META tags in this order:

<meta http-equiv="ALL_DECODERS" content="Disabled">

<meta http-equiv="UPCA" content="Enabled">

The prefix Scanner_ can also be used with all symbologies.

For information on Scanner_Navigate or Scanner_Processed, see Navigate Tags.
