Barcode scanning on POS

on 3/21/13, 6:54 AM 2,725 views


I would like to know whether items can be feed using bar code scanner. I tried to scan barcode from POS screen but nothing is happened. Then I focused cursor in search field, then scanned. Now the bar code number shows in search and got items list filtered. But it is not getting automatically added to sales items on scanning. A POS system should add item to sales list on scanning. But in OpenERP it need to manually click on that item after scanning, also need to clear search/scan field before scanning next item.

Please help me, Thanks in Advance
