Using Microsoft Point of Service for .NET for a USB Barcode Reader RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello !

    I'm creating a VB.net 2013 application .

    I want my application  to support reading from USB Barcode Readers.

    I've read about this  :   http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42081 , and I want to know if this library can support general USB barcode readers , and what is more important , if can help me with the following scenario :

    I've read that most of general USB Barcode Readers are treated like a keyboard , and work like a standard keyboard.

    But this is the problem

    On my Main form , i have several textboxes.

    One of them is Barcode Textbox , where a user should write the barcode manually from keyboard, or can read from barcode reader.

    On other textboxes , only manual write from keyboard should be permitted and not from barcode reader.

    So is there a way to distinguish a read from barcode reader and writing from the keyboard , using the above library ?

    If yes were can I read more about how to use it ?

    Thank you !
