We have been using DataWedge for years to scan barcode data into text boxes on our forms, running on CE 5.0-based Symbol 9090s.  Now I need to know how to add the needed code to my vb app that will let it read that same barcode data without using DataWedge.  I have looked at the samples from Symbol, but they are making no sense to me.

I'm hoping someone can give me a CLEAR, understandable example of what code needs to be added, or can point me to a comparable, well-documented example...TIA
