Issue Details

Control characters are not being sent to the host

 

Applicable To

DS2278, DS2208, DS4308, DS8178, DS8100, DS8108

 

Resolution / Answer

Scanners with Out of the Box Experience settings are not sending control characters to the host application.  

Keypad Emulation is enabled and must be disabled.  

The Disable Keypad Emulation bar code can be found in the scanner's Product Reference Guide in the chapter that matches the host type being used, either:

  • Radio
  • USB
  • Keyboard Wedge.  

Scan the Disable Keypad Emulation bar code to send Control characters.
