Hi everybody,
Can anyone tell me that how can i read a barcode through a barcode reader.


It would be beneficial if i can check that c# application without having the hardware as i want to buy a barcode reader after successfully.
Thanks,
Akky

It depends on the reader. One very typical keyboard reader interface type is called "Keyboard wedge". It has the simple interface identical to that of a keyboard:

You should check with the manufacturer if this is the case. If it is, you can develop your code using just a regular keyboard. Smile | :)

In all other cases, you probably need to have the hardware.
