How to program a Symbol DS3408 Barcode Scanner in


  • I've been researching how to use a barcode scanner through, but haven't found many resources. I'm looking for a good starting point to learn how to program a barcode scanner to read and then store the barcode into a variable. I have downloaded the SMDK v1.7 and imported the classes from Symbol into my code. Does anyone know of any good resources or places to begin learning how to work with a barcode scanner in

    I'm working with a Symbol DS3408, Connected to my computer running windows 7 through a rs232 to Ethernet, I'm also using Visual Studio 2010.

    Any help and direction would be great this is my first time doing this and have just been searching for hours coming up with only small pieces of information that aren't really helping me out. I'm also not running it through keyboard mode because I don't have a keyboard wedge. Is it possible to read from the scanner and write to a variable if it is not in Keyboard mode? Thanks in advance for any help.

    I want to do all of this in a simple Windows Form Application.
