Barcode scanner

Hello,

Has anyone used the barcode scanner to create a new record and associate the new record with an existing record in a different table? The scanner functionality is not available on connection field. Also I tried to use form rules and record rules to initiate the connection, however it did not work.

Looking forward to suggestions.

Will it be possible to use the scanner for the Search component anytime soon? @tim.young @Chem

Best,
