What would be the best way to add barcode scanning/reading to an existing vb6 program.
The user can now manually add products once he has defined a category for the product and entered the required
fields into the database.
But simply adding a txt field to the existing won't work in this program. Should I create a new form specifically for the barcode reading and work with this? Is this how it's done.
I have no knowlege of barcode scanners and would need to do this for a customer. I don't have a way to test it out either, but the customer understands this and will work with me.
Any information anyone can provide along with links to sourcecode that you know work,,,, will be appreciated.
Also, I have questions on how to create a form which would be read by a scanner. If the product database requires price, sales tax , category etc for each product entered, how would a user be able to scan the product from the vendor into the database? Would a form created have to have all those fields? I am in the dark completely on this.
