Multiple barcodes in a dynamic form don't work

Jun 23, 2010 2:31 AM

Hi everybody

 

I have a form in which I can add new items using instanceManager. I want to capture the data from each item i separate barcodes, and here comes the problem. I can make the barcode capture data from the first item in the form, but when I add new items when I fill out the form, the barcodes all refers to item no. one.

 

How can I make each new barcode refer to the right item?

 

The objects for item information including the barcode is placed in a subform.

 

I hope someone can help.

P.S. If the question seems familiar, its because I have already posted it in another forum, but without any result. So I try again.

    Here is an example that I got from Steve Walker (another person who posts onthis forum)  that I think does what you want.

    So you will put a barcode on each line in the table and you want the barcode to hold the data from the row? Here is an example ...it is not pretty but it gets the job done. The barcode will not update until you exit the quantity field.

    If you'd like, I could look at the form if you e-mail it to me (my e-mail is on my profile page).

     

    Thanks,

    Alex

    I do not have a barcode scanner to validate that value that is in the barcode. I added a message after the call to update the barcode (on the exit of the quantity field) to display the value of the barcode in a message box and it seems to be working fine.

     

    I did find an issue with teh PartNumber and modified that as well.

     

    Have a look at this one and let me know.
