I have a lot # that is entered on the form as "LOT#ISANL100518" I need to create a barcode but the "#" obviousily will not read. Is it possible for me just to pull the last 11 digits into the barcode?
Or is there a better solution where I can preset a prefic "LOT#" on my field.
Any help would be appreciated.
The # character should be readable by any barcode decoding device (hardware or software) so you shouldn't need to worry about.
If you wish to remove the prefix 'LOT#' it can be done with the following script attached to the exit event of the respective text field.
var lot = this.rawValue;
this.rawValue = lot.substring(4,lot.length);
I agree with Steve's response, but if you don't have static positions of the # symbol, I'd do a lot.substring(lot.instanceOf("#"), lot.length);
Just a little re-assurance for data integrity
