Troubleshooting Question

Barcode scanner asp.net

Last Modified: 2020-10-15
We need to read some barcodes from products, I dont want to do a windows app to avoid deployment and downtimes if we need to change PC for any reason, Also, I dont want to use a keyboard wedge scanner, I prefer it to be serial port or bluetooth or something that does not interfere with current user keyboard, so I decided to go with ASP.NET but I am wondering if I get a rs232 scanner, HOW am I going to get the data from the frontend, any examples you have from reading COM port of user machine and sending to server?, I am planning on using ZEBRA development toolkit if that helps on something, but I have only seen examples for mobile apps or windows apps, nothing for web.
