The user will place an ID Card on a TWAIN scanner and press a "Capture ID" button in my application.  I need to find the necessary code and componenet to "read" the barcode and fill textboxes in my VB form (Name, Address, ID#, Type of ID, Date of Birth, etc.).  I've googled this many times and found plenty of expensive runtime licensing and dead ends.  Looking for an inexpensive solution.  Thank you.
