Easily encode functions with Code 128 Set A

I read your article 'Code 128 / GS1-128 Barcode FAQ&Tutorial', about character set A and lowercase letters, which said that "anything lowercase in set A will create a function!", "Use the letter “i” for a tab and “m” for a return." I saw the letter 'c' representing Alt Key On and the letter 'd' representing Alt Key Off elsewhere, so 'cDd 'represents {ALT+D}, but I'm not sure if it's correct. At the same time, I read your article 'ASCII Chart | ISO 1252 Latin-1 Char Set' and couldn't find the answer I wanted. So do you have other functions besides tab and Carriage return? If so, can you provide a complete list of functions corresponding to Minuscule?

Best Answer

When encoding functions in Code 128 barcodes, you can only encode what is in the ASCII Character Set so other options such as ALT+D are not available. However, the IDAutomation USB Scanner can be programmed to interpret certain characters as Function keys as well as other keys such as PgUp, PgDn, Backspace, Tab, Enter, Esc, Insert, Delete, Home, and End when Function Key Emulation Mode is enabled.
