Unless your scanner is configured to give you an "end of data" sequence your textbox doesn't know if data is typed or scanned - most scanners come preconfigured to act like keyboards, and Windows does not store any "originated from" information.

Check with your manufacturer and set your scanner to give particular "lead in" and "tail out" sequences that your code can detect - you can then use them to trigger your query.
