Scan barcode from Nav universal apps

Hi all,

currently i tested using camera. it is succesfull

how to open barcode / qr scanner and then populate to for example whatever textbox we have provided for it


These days you can purchase hand held scanners that can directly scan and write it to NAV or you can buy a barcode scanner software from vendors and it comes with a executable that can be installed and on the property of the page or report you can use the barcode font and it will capture the barcode.

you mean handheld scanner, and then install nav apps. and can use immediately without customization?

Yes, that is correct, what you can do is create a table in NAV and you can program the hand held scanner directly scan it to this new field and then you can use this field value to your processing needs.
