Hello Friends.
I am working with a  barcode reader. I have checked its working with VB using the mscomm32.ocx. But I want to use it in one of my web application in asp pages. The web application opens a history for me but the data of the system is fed manually by typing. This should be through barcode reader now. Please help me by suggesting the approach I should take. Will it work if I make a dll in vb and use it with asp? I am not sure how the oncomm event of mscomm would be handled. Please help.
