Hello Everybody,

I am in need of assistance once again. I was asked to put together an app that among other things, must have a barcode enabled section. Of course, this was not part of the original specs and most of the app (98%) is done.

Here's the scenario; since there are so many data entry points (textboxes, comboboxes, and other similar controls), I'd like to be able to detect if the USB barcode-reader is plugged in or not, and to be able to disable/enable the USB port where it is at will.

Is such thing even possible?

Thank you all for your interest and help.

Hello kaushikjoshi,

Thank you for your suggestion. At a glance it seems to only offer information on connected devices rather than offering the option to enable/disable a particular one, but I'll look closer into it; perhaps it does have what I need.

I'll let you know if it was helpful.

Best regards.
