I want to integrate a bar code reader in my app. Does anyone have any experience or advice to offer?

    Paul,

    If you are going to use some existing barcode libraries, such as this http://www.onbarcode.com/products/net_barcode/barcodes/qrcode.html , you can call these functions from Premier app as normal .NET functions (after adding all necessary references).

    Paul --

    The way I read your question seems a bit differently than Yuri did.

    I think you meant you would like the BARCODE READER to be able to enter TEXT into your APP.

    I think if the BARCODE READER is recognized by WINDOWS that you can use it to enter TEXT into a TEXTBOX in a PREMIER APP.

    I think what you have to be careful about is whether the BARCODE READER is configured to transmit a LINE FEED or a CARRIAGE RETURN or a TAB or NOTHING after the TEXT is sent.

    If that is what you are looking for, I believe that the BARCODE READER can be configured to enter data into a TEXTBOX in the same way that a KEYBOARD would.

    I hope this information is helpful.
