A code 128 barcode segments data by using application identifiers. One of the identifiers is 3202. In the barcode, the 3202 is enclosed in parentheses ie: (3202). This AI tells me there are 6 digits following the (3202) and that the number has two decimal positions.
When I read a barcode with my barcode scanner, the "()" are not included with the scan. I can see the application identifier (such as the 3202 pounds, net weight, 6 digits, 2 decimals). However, it is not enclosed in parenthesis.
I am trying to write code that will parse the barcode data, find the AI's and determine what information follows.
Find 1st (
Extract data from between ().
This tells me what data and the size of the data field that follows
Now I should be able to extract the info from the barcode using the information I have.
The problem is, the parentheses do not come thru with the barcode.
Can I setup my scanner to expose this data
