Question / Problem:
How to encode Bar Code recognition results in an alternate character set such as ISO 8859-1 Latin 1; Western European (ISO) or ISO 8859-2 Central European; Central European (ISO)
Answer / Solution:
The bar code recognition results from both the Standard Bar Code engine and the Enhanced Bar Code engine can be encoded using a standard Character Set by defining its Code Page Identifier in the KBarMode.ini configuration file.
For example, the Code Page Identifier for the ISO 8859-1 Latin 1: Western European Character Set is 28591. The Code Page Identifier for the ISO 8859-2 Central European Character Set is 28592. For the Code Identifiers for other character sets, see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ge-identifiers
To encode Bar Code recognition results using an alternate character set:
- On each station where bar code recognition will be performed, navigate to
- Create a new text file called
KBarMode.ini(if one does not already exist)
KBarMode.iniin a text editor such as Notepad
- Add the following lines (if they do not already exist)
The example above uses the Code Identifier for the ISO 8859-1 Latin: Western European Character Set as the ICEOECode value. To define a different Character Set, use its Code Identifier as the ICEOECode value.
