When a form has a bar code reader button, a bar code can be read and the value read from the bar code can be populated in a field designated by the system administrator. To use a bar code reader button:

  2. On a desktop system:
    • Upon clicking the button, the Choose File to Upload dialog box is displayed.

    • Navigate to the directory where the image containing the bar code resides.

    • Select the appropriate image and click Open. Upon the bar code being successfully read, a message under the bar code reader button stating Successfully read bar code is displayed and the value is populated into the appropriate field.

    In an iOS environment:

    • Upon clicking the button, two options are available: Take Photo or Video and Choose Existing.
