  • Do you already have a barcode reader?

    The readers I have worked with doesn't require anything special.

    Open up notepad and scan a barcode, the text just comes into notepad like someone typed it.

    In websolutions i have made some simple javascript to move to next field when 14 digits have been typed into a field, that meant a scanned barcode would "type" in the code, and the cursor then was in the next field.

    Different barcodes have different lenghts though.
