Attention Apple developers!
Are you using the SocketScan™ 10 SDK to integrate the iOS certified Socket Bluetooth Cordless Hand Scanner 7Xi or 7XiRx with your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch application?
If you answered yes, then you’ll be interested to know there’s a new application utility available that enhances the integration process and puts control over the configuration of the CHS 7Xi and 7XiRx at your fingertips.
What is ScannerSettings
The ScannerSettings application is a tool for Apple iOS developers integrating the CHS 7Xi and 7XiRx with their applications for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices.
Developers using the Socket Software Development Kit (SDK) can take advantage of having access to the source code for ScannerSettings, which is included in the SDK, to customize the following with respect to the CHS 7Xi and 7XiRx:
- Supported 2D and 1D symbologies or barcode types
- Define suffix or prefix (e.g. a carriage return or special character)
- Customize user feedback mechanisms (LED, beep, vibrate)
The ScannerSettings utility provides developers with a proven source code example of what is possible when incorporating SocketScan 10 SDK APIs into their applications; it demonstrates that development with the CHS 7Xi and 7XiRx can be as simple or complex as an application code requires.
You can download ScannerSettings for free in the Apple App Store in iTunes. ScannerSettings requires Apple iOS 4.1 or later and will only work with the Socket Bluetooth CHS 7Xi or 7XiRx barcode scanner.
The CHS 7Xi and 7XiRx are Apple iOS certified for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch and sold separately, SKU# CX2864-1336 (7Xi) and CX2866-1338 (7XiRx).
