Combo box and barcode scanning

100+
P: 121
Hi,

I want to scan a barcode into a combobox and then set the focus to next combobox as soon as the first barcode has been scanned I am using the following code on the on change event in CboBox1

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Me.CboBox2.SetFocus
this works but the barcode information that is scanned in cbobox1 is copied to cbobox2 .

I tried inserting a break point in the code and for some reason the barcode number is scanned into the code window????

Any help is much appreciated

Regards Phill

Hi Phill,

I'm not sure if this is the answer or not, but have you tried placing that code in the AfterUpdate event for CboBox1 instead of the OnChange?

I think you might be better server testing it out by actually typing values in the combobox first and then, once it works, trying to scan it. I have a sneaking suspicion that if you type it right now with the OnChange event, that it will still copy to the other combobox.

Why are you starting a new thread for this did you lose the last one? http://bytes.com/topic/access/answer...rcode-scanning
There are several professionals who have been trying to help on that thread.

If your code window was the active window when you scanned the Barcode then that will happen.

I will be closing this thread.
