Search a list from a barcode scan

Hello, I need to add a button that searches a particular list from a barcode scan and return the details of that particular row. Thanks in advance.

A couple of ways to do that would be:

  • Create a screen, with a text entry component and an inline list. Then point the text entry to a user specific column to hold the barcode scan value. Then set the filter on the inline list to filter based on the value in the in the user specific column.
  • Create a screen the same as above with a text entry component and a user specific column, but then create a multiple relation column that links the user specific column value to the related value in table used for your inline list. Then set the source of the inline list to use the relation.

Either case wouldn’t require a button as it would return a result as soon as a match is found.
