Resolution / Answer


Picklist mode enables the digital scanner to decode only barcodes that are aligned under the laser crosshair or LED aiming dot.
It allows users to easily select and scan a single barcode from a field of barcodes.

  • Disable - Disables Picklist mode; any barcode within the field of view can be decoded.
  • Hardware Picklist - Picklist mode is enabled by sending a command to hardware.
  • Software Picklist - Picklist feature is handled in the software; no commands are sent to hardware.

Note: Performance might vary on some devices if Hardware or Software Picklist modes are set.
