Using Advanced Configuration

Velocity uses JavaScript scripts to customize actions during a session. For example, you can use scripts to change the way a page displays, add voice options, autofill fields, or modify scan data.

Many scripts are included in the Velocity Console by default, or when you use the Rapid Modernization website. You can modify and use the provided scripts or write your own using the APIs listed in the Velocity Scripting Guide. To write Velocity scripts, you should have experience with scripting languages such as JavaScript.

You can only run scripts in the Velocity Client as a session connects or while a session is connected. If the connection is terminated, the event handlers from scripts are discarded. When switching between sessions, only the active session will receive scan data or keypresses, and so event handlers for the active session are the only ones that will fire.

For information about scripting for Velocity, see the Velocity Scripting Guide.
