When encoding special chars to HEX for barcodes, I can encode the
CRLF with the
So giving the string
USER01 the result is
555345523031. When adding
0D0A and converting the this
5553455230310D0A to a barcode, a scanner can read this and print
USER01 and a new line to a texteditor or word. For tab the ASCII char is
0x09, so the goal was to encode
<username><tab>password><cr><lf>, scan this while focusing the user input field, so chrome would jump at into the password field, type it in and “hit” enter. As I tried, the
LF does NOT work. So when using this approach in chrome, the result was that the username was typed into the user field, as expected, but then only a single blank space followed by the password and a new tab with “download”.
So my question is: How can I encode a tab char, so that when a scanner reads it, this tab is executed and the cursor jumps to the next field, like when you manually hit the tab key?
