Best Answer

Enable ApplyTilde or ProcessTilde and encode an ASCII 003 to emulate pressing the ALT character.
For example:

1. In Code 128 Auto and PDF417:
~003 is the ALT; Example to produce Alt+f: ~003f

Example to produce multiple Alt characters for Code 128 or PDF417 barcodes:
If you wanted to encode an Alt+f and Alt+o, use:~003f~003o


2. In Data Matrix, Aztec, QR Code
~d003 is the ALT; Example to produce Alt+f: ~d003f

Example to produce multiple Alt characters for these 2D barcodes:
If you wanted to encode an Alt+f and Alt+o, use: ~d003f~d003o


3. In Code 39 $C is the ALT (at the end use $D)
Note: Full ASCII Code-39 must be enabled in the scanner for this to work.

Example to produce Alt+f: $Cf$D
Example to produce multiple Alt characters for Code 39:
If you wanted to encode an Alt+f and Alt+o, use: $Cf$Co$D

Note: Encoding ASCII 003 is the decimal character for End of Text (ETX) and your scanner may not interpret this as the Alt key, as keyboard wedges are used to define non-ASCII keys and vary from scanner to scanner (see your scanner manual for more details).
