I am trying to read a card data in my program. I am using the forms keypress event, and trapping properly. I get the data that I am after, but it is very slow. Is there a way to get keyboard data directly and not waiting for an event?

No you have to get stuff from an event.

Does anyone have a workaround? Maybe API? I can't believe that the keyboard is that locked out to only be read from an event. Is there an event that functions quicker?
