I am working on a c# winforms application, which should read the barcode value when scanned from barcode sanner pick the required information from database and display that on the screen.
Till now i have worked on such applications, where i will have a cursor on some textbox control, when the user scans the barcode, it will be printed on the textbox. Based on the value on the textbox I use to write a query to get the value from database. But with the new application, it is told that there will be no control on the screen, It is told that if the user keeps the screen active and scans the barcode, the application should read the scanned value and get data from database and print that on the screen.
Can anyone please help me in getting the barcode value without having the control on the screen.
Thanks in advance,
