Integrate a Scanner Interface to Mover.
At the moment Mover reads the EAN13 Barcode out of a file. This file is generated by a little software from the Manufacturer of the Scanner that reads the Scanner as a keyboard and then writes the input into the [url removed, login to view] file. Problem is this little program has to run always in the foreground to be active.
Job is: Write a new program or better integrate a function in Mover which does the following: Read an Virtual Com Port and write the [url removed, login to view] file to disk or import it directly to Mover.
The Scanner Manufacturer has a driver / tool for this job here : [url removed, login to view]
This driver installs an virtual com port and redirects all scanner output to this virtual com port. So your job would be to read the ean13 Code directly from the com port instead of the text file on disk. It would be great if you could make this optional so one can choose if he wants to read directly from the scanner or from a text file just for backwards compatibility.
Would be great if you could do that. Its nothing difficult I think and should be doable in some hours. As you don't have the scanner testing might be a little difficult and need some time but I guess its doable - I can get me a scanner from the company and do the testing for you
Please let me know asap, as I need the info for the client.
