How To Extend BarcodeScanText Field To Allow More Than 32 Characters Of The Barcode (Doc ID 2286731.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2017

Applies to:

Siebel Barcode - Version 8.1.1.14.5 [IP2014] and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal


The Siebel Field Service out of the Box  BarcodeScanText only allows 32 characters of scanned Barcode.  A customer enabled the Bar Code functionality on a custom Applet. The input data they were scanning had more than 32 Characters.  From internal environment it can be confirmed that 32 Characters is the Maximum characters one can enter into the Bar Code field

Customer is asking if the Barcode field  can be extended to accept more than 32 characters.
  
This used to work fine in High Interactivity Mode (IE8), but not in Open UI.


Question:
How do we increase the length of this textbox so that Siebel could read the complete Barcode number which is more than 32 Characters?
