I am working on a way to process the status of products and I want to
use a bar code reader to make things easier. I already have the scanner
which simply reads the bar code into the keyboard port and appends a
carriage return. I was thinking of printing bar codes that would
contain information which is useless externally but useful to my app.
Bar code: 123456789
Which would break down into:
order (first three) => 123
product (next five) => 45678
status (last digit) => 9
I would then use a nested form to feed the information in the database.
My question is… I get the string from the barcode reader as one long
string of numbers with no delimiters so how do I break that string down?
I can make sure the position of the values is the same in the barcode
when we print them but split and chunk both want a delimiter. Thanks,
