    Issue:

    Function keys cannot be used for a scan handler.

     

    Resolution:

    You can use a key macro to swap the function key with a non-typical special character.

     

    Example:

    Here we need to use the F7 key in a scan handler.  We will prepend any symbology with an exclamation point that we will use a key macro to swap for the F7 key.

     

    Scan handler:

    A(0)[P\\21]

     

    Any symbology, any length, prepend, !

     

    Key macro:

    0021:\4100

     

    Swaps the exclamation point with the F7 key

     

    Now the F7 key is prepended to any barcode that is scanned.
