01 May 2012, 10:44 PM

I have form and i want to input data using barcode and it will display on textbox and after input on the first textbox the focus will go to next textbox untill it will go on the last textbox and on the last textbox it will automatically save the data's on the database.

How is it possible?

here is my sample code:

date_default_timezone_set("Asia/Singapore"); //set the time zone
$con = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root','');

if (!$con) {
echo 'failed';
mysql_select_db("mes", $con);

<script type="text/javascript">
function ini()

// Retrieve the code
var code =document.getElementById ("code_read_box1").value;
var code =document.getElementById ("code_read_box2").value;
var code =document.getElementById ("code_read_box3").value;
var code =document.getElementById ("code_read_box4").value;
var code =document.getElementById ("code_read_box5").value;
var code =document.getElementById ("code_read_box6").value;
// Return false to prevent the form to submit
return false;


<body onLoad="document.barcode.code_read_box1.focus()">

<form name=barcode onsubmit = "return ini()">

<input type="text" id="code_read_box1" value="" /><br/>
<input type="text" id="code_read_box2" value="" /><br/>
<input type="text" id="code_read_box3" value="" /><br/>
<input type="text" id="code_read_box4" value="" /><br/>
<input type="text" id="code_read_box5" value="" /><br/>

have you ever tested any other office barcode tools to handle this question?

I think you doubled your questions. But I recommend you google barcode generator add-in for Excel, then you can test whether those products are compatible with your request. If you want to program some codes yourself, I think you may post your question at http://www.excelforum.com. I once read some post which give free sample code for barcode reader (http://www.barcodelib.com/net_barcode_reader/main.html) or generator.
