Event Trigger based on Input Length

I  am writing a very simple database in which one field is read by a USB barcode scanner...which simply acts like a keyboard input.

I need someway to have and event triggered once this data is input, as all barcode data would be the same length , testing the length should be the trigger to move to next record or some other action.

Datalogic, but it is many years ago. My impression was that this feature was quite common.

Most barcode scanners can be set to add a linefeed after the scanned code.
The you can use the AfterUpdate event of the textbox.

After matching the ones we had in house to a current manufacturer ( Symbol is now Motorola )  , I was able to find the manual and reconfigure the devices.

Thanks
