We run a local pokerleague with TD software and we want to upgrade our signing-in procedure and make it easier for both the organization as well for the players. Therefore we where thinking of the following situation.We like to give our members a membership card with a barcode. On this barcode are all the player's details (stored in the PC) Connect a handscanner to the PC (the kind they use in shops). When players arrive at the door, their barcode is scanned, and the player is registered for the tournament. Easy does it!
The benefits of this system are various:
- It's difficult for people to copy an membership card
- if necessary, only people with a barcoded-membershipcard are aloud in the pit
- signing-in with a scanner saves time for the organization
- you cant make mistakes with double names during the signing-in, or forget to put the name into the software, or if you have forgotten the name of  the person in front of you .......
- it looks very professional

The problem we found is that there is no direct searching possibility with the ''add player'' button in the players tab (here appears a window, and then you can choose the player), in the DB tab there is direct a searching option. So, on this moment the DB can recognize a barcode but we can't get the player straight into the current tournament, due to the window that appears in the player tab. Does anybody knows how to change this setting, or knows how this idea could work out well.

Already thanks,

The Netherlands
