DroidDB Tip of the Month

DroidDB® Tip for October 2014

Using a Barcode to Find a Record

In a DroidDB form, you can navigate to a record by scanning a barcode. Here's how:

Say your table has barcode values in the column PART_ID.

Create a macro with three steps:
    (Step 1) BARCODE (with "col" set to @var(34)).
    (Step 2) SORT BY (sorting on PART_ID). Make sure PART_ID is indexed.
    (Step 3) RECORD | SEARCH (with "arg" set to @var(34)).

Top rated! I needed a solid database application development tool for mobile devices. I chose DroidDB for Android OS because it provided a way to get a strong product to market quickly. DroidDB is relational, gives me control over form layout, handles macros, and supports events. It works on all Android versions I have tried and is a great companion product to SYWARE’s VisualCE.
