Is it possible? If so, what additional software would be needed and how much would it costs, approx.

RE: integrating barcode scanning with remedy asset tracking

Do you have more detail?

What do you mean by "integrating"? Reading bar codes? Printing them? Interpreting the sub-structure? Validating them?

Generally, any application that accepts keyboard input can also receive barcodes through a wedge or USB attached scanner and if that's all you need then no additional software is required.

RE: integrating barcode scanning with remedy asset tracking

I need help with this, and I know you never got a reply, Golom, but I thought I would ask for your help.

We have a simple shipping application.  We would like to be able to scan a barcode, have it pull up the order in the shipping app, open the order, enter the weight in a seperate field (via a USB scale) and do some other simple tasks.  We were doing this all by hand (typing it in), but we were hoping to eliminate some keystrokes.

I understand that I need to write a small program that is launched when I scan the barcode that will likely just enter some keystrokes that enters data in the shipping app.  What should the program be written in?  Any recommendations?  I know some VB, but that's from years ago.  Are there better programming languages now that we should use?

Thanks in advance!
