Form options

Add a form when your workflow requires capture of index data. To add a form, fill out the following 3 tabs:

General tab

Scanner Settings tab

Components tab

General tab

Field Name Description
Form Name The name of the form to be displayed on the KSS device.
Icon File Browse to the folder location that contains GIF, PNG, or JPEG file for this form entry. The Form icon is 48x48 256 color.
Style Sheet: Enter the name of your style sheet. If you leave this field blank, the default style sheet is enabled. You can create a custom XML style sheet to customize the format of your form, with different font color and size, logos, etc. as required by your business needs.  When a user right clicks on a file and selects a form, the KSS client retrieves the form definition from the server in XML format. This XML formatted file has all the field setting definitions for the form. The style sheet converts the XML-formatted form and displays it in an HTML format on the touch screen of the Scan Station. The custom XML style sheet will need to provide the appropriate rendering of the ACForm element as defined in the AutoCapture XML schema. If there are references in the custom XML style sheet to external files then you can enter a "comma" or "semi-colon" separated list of files in the following order:
  • Style sheet name
  • Image file name(s)
  • Java scripts file name(s)
Script File Enter the VBScript name for validating the index data on the devices.
Form Fields Add fields by clicking the New field button appearing as the first column header and labeled with N.  Once you have added the first row, you can tab through to get additional fields added. For each field you can configure the field attributes:
  • Field Name — field name is a string type and can be any alphanumeric characters.  Using special characters (~, &, <, >,%, ", /, \, :, ?, | ) is not recommended.

Resolution Determines the quality of the scanned image. The image resolution is defined by the number of dots-per-inch that are used to create the image. The higher the resolution the sharper the image. Available resolutions are:
  • 200
  • 300
  • 400
  • 600
300 dpi is optimal for creating text PDF files.

Contrast (min 1 max100) Enhances the edges contained in an image by adjusting the difference between black-and-white, and thereby making an image sharper or softer. In a low contrast setting, the difference between black and white is small, so the image is softer. In a high contrast setting, the difference between black and white is large, so the image is clearer. Thus, the higher the contrast level, the more enhancement of the image edges. Allow user to change default scan settings: If enabled, you will see an icon representing this scanner setting on the device display which allows the user to change this settings.  If this option is disabled, the setting is "locked", that is the user cannot change scan settings defined for the form.
Threshold (min 0 max 255) Converts a grayscale image to a black-and-white image. A low threshold value produces a lighter image, and can be used to subdue backgrounds and subtle, unneeded information. A high threshold value produces a darker image, and can be used to help pick up faint images.
