I use a hook keyboard dll with delphi application, this dll send key used for user to delphi application only but when I use the barcode scanner the characters send to application result of: DOMAYUSCULA OR ENTER O so on... not complete string result of laser read, the barcode scanner read from paper DO821431051 but application get DOMAYUSCULA or ENTER O so on...

How to read real string from barcode scanner with use hook keyboard dll?

The final procedure fro get Keys is:

  {Virtual key code to Key Name}
  GetKeyNameText(Message.LParam,@NombreTecla,100);

  {Look if the key was pressed, released o re-pressed}
  if ((Message.lParam shr 31) and 1)=1 then
    edIngreso.Text:= edIngreso.Text + String(NombreTecla)
//  Accion:='Soltada' {Released}
  else
  if ((Message.lParam shr 30) and 1)=1
      then Accion:='Repetida' {repressed}
      else Accion:='Pulsada'; {pressed}

GetKeyNameText returns a localized textual description of the key like " ENTER" for the enter key.

That correct!

But, in the second reading get  is DOMAYUSCULAS821431051ENTRAR and nothing get with OnKeyPress ord(Key)= 13 (Enter Key)
