Hi, currently I am searching the way of linking 1D and 2D barcode Scanner from Android phone with AX 2012 R3 which means the system will display the information after the barcode been scanned by using Android Phone. How could I make it? Thank you.Best Regards. Shi Min.
Hi Shi Min,
Do you have some special barcode software tools on your phone or do you simply want to scan a barcode with a freely available bar code scanner App and then send the information to AX2012?
Into which form to you want to import the scanned barcode to and for what reason?
Would be great if you could provide some additional information on that.
Barcode scanner is basically a keyboard, providing a string based on the barcode. So, you need some app which scans barcodes and can send the result somewhere. In AX, if you want to update the screen contents after a scan, then perhaps you need a form with a text input field. When value is entered to the field (by real keyboard or barcode scanner), the form should show relevant info.
So, it's two separate parts:
- use a phone/scanner as PC keyboard
- form in AX that shows relevant info when text is entered to a field
Of course this is just one option. Buy since you want to have interaction with your AX form / session, integrating with web services might not be the best solution.
Hi, Dr. Ludwig.
I would like to scan barcode with a freely available bar code scanner that downloaded in Android phone and the information will be directly popup at AX 2012.
Hello Shi Min,
What can be used for scanning of barcodes and the identification of items is for example a PowerApp.
It has limitations in regards to the number of records that can be directly queried and illustrated but it might do the job unless you need doing that for mass scanning processes where you need to scan thousands of barcodes an hour.
In this case a professional scanning software and device is necessary.
Since you are working in AX2012 there is another hurdle you have to jump over. The hurdle is your on-prem system that you would have to connect with your Scanning App. This might need some development. Before doing that, have a look at the MS Appsource for 3rd party providers of such scanning tools because overall they might be cheaper and faster to implement compared to creating something yourself.
Hi Shi Min,
Do you want to use the android scanner and have information on your Dynamics AX client machine or do you want to display the information on your android device retrieving data from AX2012?
Ludwig is correct about 3rd party add-ons. I'm working at an ISV vendor where we have our Anywhere solution as mobile platform, but also logistics processes.
Hi, Mr. André. Thank you so much for your answering. I would like to scan by using android phone and once the barcode been scanned, the information will be displayed at AX 2012.
Thank you so much for your replying. I am much appreciate. Have a nice day.
Thank you so much for your replying. I am much appreciate. I think I already get my answer.
