Keeping control characters in inputbox
Posted on 2006-11-27
We have a barcode scanner, running Windows CE 4.01. When our web page requests a scan, we can aim the scanner at a barcode, pull the trigger, and the code is automatically entered into the input field by going through the clipboard. However, the barcode contains some non-displayable control codes (ASCII &h1D and &h1E) as field separators. These are stripped out when the data hits the inputbox. I know the codes are there, because the test program for the scanner will display them as small squares in the text. I know the page itself will handle the codes, because I can cut and paste a dummy record into the input and the control codes appear as small squares.
Question: How do I get the control codes to copy in with the rest of the barcode?
