Working with KeyLink for CipherLAB


Once configured KeyLink is very easy to use. All you have to do is start the target application and set it at the determined starting position (this depends on the keystroke configuration).

The first line on the right of the Transfer button shows you what mode KeyLink is in. It displays either Reader transfer or File transfer for resp. barcodereader and file mode.

Behind the Target caption you can see which application will be activated when you press the Transfer button.

Under Results you can see how many records have been transferred.

You must open the target application first. The target application may be minimized; KeyLink will restore and activate it if necessary (only when the target window name option has been configured). Next you start or activate KeyLink. Make sure the CipherLAB handheld terminal is in the cradle and set to upload a datafile (for KeyLink reader mode).

Press the Transfer button or use the hotkey to start the download and typing of the data.

KeyLink will minimize itself and activate the target application (depending on configuration) and start downloading and typing downloaded data. In the taskbar you can see how many records have been transferred thus far.

After the transfer has completed KeyLink will bring itself to the front to briefly show how many records have been transferred. After a second the destination application will be brought to the foreground so the data can be reviewed.
