    I need some help, I want to make an inventory where I scan a barcode search for the item and return a separate field result in my form. So I have a table of items that has a bar code. I scan the barcode and search for the record. Then in return a field showing a number listed.

    I don’t think out of the box there is anything that quite does this in Tap Forms. The built in barcode scanner feature works on searching for records so I don’t think that’s a good fit for your use case and there isn’t a scripting/prompter interface to handle this.

    For me personally how I work around this is that I have a hand held USB/Bluetooth barcode scanner. That acts like a keyboard except it scans barcodes to “type” the text. I then use form script with a prompter to give me a text box and can scan barcodes to search then popup the answer.
