Unless and until you enable the scanner object (or initialize the EMDK) in your native application then the scanner is controlled via DataWedge (About DataWedge - Zebra Technologies TechDocs ) meaning when you pull the trigger you will see the scanner beam configured as defined by Profile 0 in DataWedge. Once you initialize the EMDK within your application then DataWedge is disabled. You can also completely disable DataWedge from the DW settings menu: DataWedge Settings - Zebra Technologies TechDocs
We do this to provide a better out of box experience so somebody can just take the device out of a box and start scanning without having to configure anything.
Ah, just the clarification I was looking for - thanks!
