Actually, a lot of barcode readers return strings and are very easy to work with. However, you'll have to start with the documentation for it.

The barcode readers I worked with had drivers that just generated keyboard events as if you entered the barcode number from a keyboard. To use these you just clicked on a textbox to give it focus to receive input events, scan the bar code and the barcode value is entered as text.
But for that to work your barcode reader needs to provide a driver that supports this input model, and to find this out you should consult your documentation.
Or do you need to write a driver for an USB handheld barcode reader?

What I have done in my case is. Download the USB-Serial Driver from Honewell site and wrote a serial port observer class to read the data. The device manual has the information on how to configure your device to behave your USB device as Serial Port device. read your manual on Programming-Interfacing scanner device.
