Barcode vs keyboard input


I was under the impression that the barcode field, when I filled it with ‘n1’, then I can use a keyboard to key in ‘n1’ and that will get to show the product

Have I missed something - is there a way to use keyboard inputting product alphabet+number ?

hmm solved it now - just need to press enter!

Yes, most barcode readers either by default or with option follow scanned code with carriage return/enter in order to submit the value within system used with.
Obviously where keyboard is possible to use enter is required else if another code was ‘n12’ you wouldn’t be able to enter that, or likewise n alone would supersede any other code beginning with n. Need to know when entry is completed.
