  • Hi Friend,
      As of my knowledge, You need a barcode reader device first. That device must have proper interface(not UI) that will provide necessary data to your software. Please do check with barcode reader devices and their documentations.

  • Hi DEVMBM,

    This is a barcode reader we have used in some of our recent developments - Symbol LS2208.
    http://symbol.scansys.es/content/view/18/1/

    Plug it on the PC via USB and handle the reading as keyboard events. So simple!

  • Before buy any barcode scanner, make sure you know the type of barcode you want to scan, so that  the scanner is compatible with barcode type.

  • Actually ,Code 39(barcode type ) will be good for you . I Advice you may choose laser barcode it's better than a CCD Barcode terminal.
