Barcode Scanner string conversion
Posted on 2010-11-10
We are developing an application that needs a barcode reader (any make and model) to read SUPPLIERS barcodes, and then look up a corresponding COMPANY STOCK CODE in a lookup table and input this into the running application as a string - i.e. as if the barcode read was the looked-up string.
THis will involve
1. intercepting the barcode read
2. processing it,
3. injecting the result into the keyboard buffer.
2 and 3 are easy, but 1 isn't. Is there anything out there to do this?
I can't believe this is the first question on this, but I cannot find any previous posts: but it is difficult to search for....
