Article ID: 95891276

Issue / Question

How do I send the last 5 characters of a barcode?

Applicable To

All Zebra Android devices running DataWedge

Resolution / Answer

At time of KA writing, DataWedge does not support "Skip to End" as an "Action"

The below is a workaround, as written it applies to all bar codes, modify the "Criteria" as needed for the use case. 

  1. In DataWedge, open the desired profile 
  2. Scroll down to the KeyStroke Output section and click the "Advanced Data Formatting" line
  3. Click the "Enable" check box
  4. Click "Rule0"
  5. Click "Actions"
  6. Click the three dots on the upper RHS of the menu and select  "New Action"
  7. Choose the "Skip Ahead" action
  8. Click this new Action and enter a large number e.g. 1000
  9. Go back one screen
  10. Click the three dots on the upper RHS of the menu and select  "New Action"
  11. Choose the "Skip Back" action
  12. Click this action and enter 5
  13. Go back one screen
  14. Click the three horizontal bars on the RHS of the "Send Remaining" rule and drag it down so that it's the last rule in the list


So the Actions would read, in order

  • Skip ahead
  • Skip back
  • Send remaining
