BarcodeChecker app on Android devices with laser scanner
You can use the BarcodeChecker app on various Android devices with laser scanners, which allow faster scanning of barcodes.
To use the BarcodeChecker app on a Unitech PA700 with laser scanner, you must configure the ScanService app to pass barcodes from the built-in laser scanner to the BarcodeChecker app.
Activate the required barcode type.
Set Length to the barcode length (For TicketCreator tickets select Interleaved 2 of 5 with Length = 10)
Select Packeted mode.
Motorola devices with laser scanners (e.g. MC40, TC55)
To use the BarcodeChecker app on Motorola devices with laser scanners, e.g. the MC40 or TC55, you must configure the DataWedge app to pass barcodes from the built-in laser scanner to the BarcodeChecker app.
1.) Create new profile
Touch > DataWedge. The DataWedge Profiles window appears.
Touch > New profile.
Enter a name for the new profile (e.g. 'BarcodeChecker') and touch OK.
2.) Configure profile
Touch the profile name. The Profile configuration screen appears.
Touch Associated apps. All applications associated with the profile are listed. The list is initially empty.
Touch > New app.
Select com.ticketcreator.barcodechecker from the list.
The Select activity menu appears.
Select * as activity.
Enable Barcode Input.
Enable all required decoders: Enable Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and QR code to scan TicketCreator tickets; other barcodes may require additional decoders.
Adjust the Decoder Settings, e.g. barcode length, if necessary.
Enable Keystroke Output.
Basic Data Formatting: Enable Send ENTER key.
Done. Now all barcodes that are scanned with the built-in laser scanner are passed to the BarcodeChecker app (when it is running).
Trouble shooting if the barcode is not recognized
Make sure that the required decoder is activated in the DataWedge profile. Enable Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and QR code to scan TicketCreator tickets; other barcodes may require additional decoders.
Make sure that scanning is not blocked by incorrect decoder settings, e.g. incorrect length.
As a test you can enable EAN-8 and EAN-13 and then scan barcodes on products.
Other Android devices with laser scanners
You can use also many other Android devices.
