  • There are barcode scanners samples here:

    If they don't work, you'll need to contact the vendor.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • You'll have to get the information from the barcode scanner directly. I suggest that you contact the vendor for this scanner and ask them how they provide the input.
