Text field

A text field allows users to enter unformatted text.

Option Description
Default The default text that appears on the device panel.
Max Length Specifies the maximum number of characters that may be entered.
Required Select this check box to specify that a value must be entered into this field before a scan can be initiated. The default value, if specified, satisfies this requirement.
Password Obscures data (so it cannot be read) whenever it is displayed on the control panel—including while the data is being entered. This can be used for obscuring passwords. This obscures the value displayed on the control panel in the way that passwords are typically hidden in a user interface. The default value is false.
Encryption Specifies whether AutoStore encrypts field values:
  • None — AutoStore stores field values as plain text.
  • Protected — AutoStore encrypts field values. The values do not appear as plain text in Status Monitor or when saved in files. When accessed as RRTs, the values can be decrypted and used by all AutoStore components.
  • Restricted — AutoStore encrypts field values. When accessed as RRTs, the values cannot be decrypted and used by all AutoStore components. They are only available for use by specific components.
Search Assist  
Static List Select this check box to enable search assist to provide a list of item suggestions for a text field. This will speed up indexing by narrowing down the selections.
Minimum Length Indicates the minimum number of characters which the user must enter before the application will search for an auto-completion item from the list of suggestions.
Suggestion List Provides the list of suggestions. The list must be sorted in alphabetical order. The search is not case-sensitive.
