Frequently Asked Questions

Does CNS Barcode work with with FM Go 12?

Yes, CNS Barcode does work with FM Go 12.

The FileMaker script protocol has changed with FileMaker/FM Go 12, so you will need to update your scripting to properly work with FM Go 12. In the original FM Go (now known as FM Go 11), the script protocol used the “fmp7script” keyword like this:

fmp7script://$/mydb?script=My%20Script&param=something

In FileMaker/FM Go 12, this has changed to just “fmp”. The previous example would now look like:

fmp://$/mydb?script=My%20Script&param=something

Does CNS Barcode work on the iPod Touch 4th Generation?

The application will run on the iPod Touch 4th Generation, however, it will not be able to scan barcodes as easily as other devices.

The main problem with the iPod Touch 4th Generation Camera is that it does not have auto-focus. It is a fixed focus camera and the focal length of the rear-facing camera is set quite far, so it makes it hard to scan barcodes that are close up. Because of this, large scale barcodes and QR Codes are going to work the best with it. Just like with the iPad 2, the front facing camera may work better because of its shorter focal length.

How can I make CNS Barcode open directly to the Camera view?

This is done by adding the “method” parameter to your URL. For example, if you had a URL like this:

cnsbarcode://scan?profile=Search

change it to:

cnsbarcode://scan?profile=Search&method=camera
