  • How can a barcode ascii string be read into a EA9 and diplayed

    Hello All.
    Can a ASCII String be read into a EA9 and displayed ? If so what do I have to do to achieve this.
    I am able to do this with my AB Panel View Plus HMI. Not sure how to do it with the C-More
    I am using a AllenBradly CompactLogix PLC
    Thank You Greatly

        Use the "Text Entry Object" and choose "Object Style" "Style 2". There are some caveats with this entry so make sure you check out the help file. ( Help file CM423)

            I meant to post this earlier:
            I am using a USB barcode scanner on an EA7 in (devices) USB port. Works well.
            Just need to have a way to set focus to the entry object (touch or tag in Option tab) and either embed a carriage return in the barcode or touch the object after scanning.
