It is also possible to export a limited configuration URL, which can be used to build a QR code.

A QR code with the configuration, can be scanned with the camera, and imported to TN5250.
A large QR code can give problems to read for some camera types, therefore try to make the data in the URL as small as possible.

As default a standard BT barcode scanner is seen as a physical keyboard, and it will block the screen keyboard. In Android Settings - Language and Input - Physical keyboard, enable option Show virtual keyboard. This will keep the screen keyboard on, while a physical keyboard or barcode scanner is active.
