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
there is a sample for barcode reading. It is actually very clear but if you have any questions, i would like to answer.
What you shouldn't forget is don't use datawedge and code at the same time. disable datawedge.
enable the barcode reading at the time you open the form that you are going to use it and on closing disable it. the device will consume less energy and also you will have less memory problems.
