Replacing RS, GS and EOT codes using ADF rules?



I need to find a way to use a DS2208 in HID mode, scanning through a web browser app ( I have this running nicely with LS2208, but 2D barcodes introduce a new problem: ISO15434 codes use non-printable characters: RS, GS and EOT (ASCII 30, 29 and 4, respectively), which are interpreted as keyboard shortcuts by the browsers.


A possible solution has been suggested by SAP in their "SAP ME How-To-Guide for Barcode Scanning" (… ) — they recommend using 123Scan2 to setup the scanner so that it replaces these characters with strings: {RS}, {GS} and {EOT}, respectively. Unfortunately, their instructions are for an older version of 123Scan2, it seems.


I was unable to set up these replacements using ADF rules: the first problem I encounter is that the program prompts me for the string to be detected and I have no way of entering the RS, GS or EOT characters (I tried the Windows alt-key trick, with no success).


Is there a way to set up those replacements? Will I be able to provide a bar code that my customers can scan and use their DS scanners with my web app?


Any help would be much appreciated.

As it turns out, this is

As it turns out, this is possible — but using "replace all" rules, which do allow choosing any character to be replaced, including GS, RS and EOT.
