Symbol PPC 2800 Scan API

Symbol PPC 2800 Scan API

After looking over the entire Symbol DevZone site... I'm so totally confused about intergrating barcode scanning into a CF.NET application that my head is spinning.

They have numerous api's and SDK's but they don't point directly to one that works for the 2800.  

The SDK's that I've looked at make little sense and seem to contradict themselves often.

Now, I'm no water-walking coder.. but I can write tight code, and I have used API's before... but I'm at a complete loss as to how this one works.

As I understand it, there are several steps (calls) to scan a barcode then place the data in a textbox. None of this is clear (at least to me) as to what, why and how.

Anyone have any experience in this area that could talk me though it simply?
