Scan frustrations!

I have items that have multiple barcodes affixed.

The “scan” action is such that I cannot target my barcode first then “action” the scan. Makes it impossible to scan the correct barcode.

Is there a way to set the field’s enabled scan to only do so after I target the barcode?

Hopefully someone in the community may know.

Most of us at AppSheet are away until right after New Years. I am here, but I am the lowly server guy and not familiar with the details of bar code scanning.

@praveen may know. He is away, but checking in periodically.

@jon_Bauer I’m not sure I totally understand. Do you want to have an explicit “Scan” button so that it doesn’t automatically scan the first barcode it locks onto?

I believe we are looking for a “read” button. If you have lot of QRs near of it, we can’t be sure did it read the correct one.
