How to automatically "Enter" scanned data on a XT15 CE6.0 fitted with Decoded Scanner (internal)

Applies To



This article provides a way to configure an Omnii device running Windows CE6.0 fitted with an internal decoded scanner such as a SE1524 auto range to automatically send an "Enter" (append Enter) after each barcode scan.


Instead of having our mobile workers press the [Enter] key to send scanned data to the Host application after each read of a barcode, we can configure in Scanner settings, Data Format to include a suffix character equal to ASCII "carriage return" (CR) / Decimal 13. This enables the device to automatically submit scanned data.

Note that this configuration applies to all barcode types hence we can consider this parameter a "global" setting.

Equipment used:

XT15 CE6.0
