A hardware barcode reader will give you the contents of the barcode, so there's nothing barcode specific you need to do in your program. Just accept standard input as if it came from a keyboard.


its simple input device which accept data from bar code and put into focused control

no seperate code is needed for that.

its just a device like key board

hope this helps you


Most if not all bar code readers will come with a specific SDK, or instructions, to interface to their reader
