Hi..

I need to input data in my textbox by scanning barcode then the data will input to textbox then the cursor focus move to next textbox until it goes to last textbox then save data.

How is it possible?

I'm not familiar with ajax

I am right that ajax/jquery code will do it?

here is my sample code:

Code:
<?php
    error_reporting(0);
   date_default_timezone_set("Asia/Singapore"); //set the time zone  
$con = mysql_connect('localhost', 'root','');

if (!$con) {
    echo 'failed';
    die();
}
mysql_select_db("mes", $con);
?>

<script type="text/javascript" > 
 
// this variable says how many characters you allow 
// to input in each textbox 
var input_size = 3; 
 
function checkTextBox( ct ) 
{ 
    var tab = ct.tabIndex; 
                 
         if ( ct.value.length == input_size ) 
        { 
            for(i=0; i<document.barcode.elements.length; i++) 
            { 
                      if( document.barcode.elements[i].tabIndex == (tab+1) ) 
                     {    
                         document.barcode.elements[i].focus(); 
                         break; 
                     } 
          } 
    }         
}; 
 
</script> 
 
</head> 
<body onLoad="document.barcode.code_read_box1.focus();"> 
<form name="barcode" > 
<input type="text" tabindex="1" id="code_read_box1" value="" onKeyPress="checkTextBox(this);"/><br/> 
<input type="text" tabindex="2" id="code_read_box2" value="" onKeyPress="checkTextBox(this);"/><br/> 
<input type="text" tabindex="3" id="code_read_box3" value="" onKeyPress="checkTextBox(this);"/><br/> 
<input type="text" tabindex="4" id="code_read_box4" value="" onKeyPress="checkTextBox(this);"/><br/> 
<input type="text" tabindex="5" id="code_read_box5" value="" onKeyPress="checkTextBox(this);"/><br/> 
<input type="text" tabindex="6" id="code_read_box6" value="" onKeyPress="checkTextBox(this);"/><br/> 
</form> 
</body> 
 
</html>
In that code I use javascript, but the problem in my code is it move to another textbox after i input 3 characters but it did not what I want because i need to use barcode instead of keyboard.

I hope somebody can help me.

Thank you so much
