I need to incorporate a barcode scanner into a vb app.  Anyone have suggestions for a serial/USB slot card scanner for cheap.  I don't like wedges because the program may not be on the specific control at the time of swipe.  I want to be able to trap the event and the values and then load a screen, retrieve the member, and set the member as being selected.

Barcode is just a input device, like the keyboard, but instead of like keyboard typing words by words, barcode 'typing' series of them. I dont think barcode device will bring any problem to the application..
