Restrict keyboard entry and only allow using bar code scanner - (Moved)

Recommended Posts


Hi,

I had created a simple GUI for a user to input a few information.
However, I don't want the user to key-in and can only input using Barcode Scanner.
Is there any way to this?

$Input_No = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 85, 10, 130, 30, 0x0008)
$Input_OptID = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 85, 90, 80, 25, 0x0008
$Input_Location = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 85, 50, 130, 30, 0x0008)

Not so sure it is this simple. Doesn't the barcode scanner device act as an keyboard making it difficult to differentiate between the real keyboard and the scanner?

Moved to the appropriate forum, as the Developer General Discussion forum very clearly states:

no problem, ProcessClose() is your friend

While True

It looks like to implement this, it is not that simple. if that so, Is there anyway once user key in any value in the input box, the UI will prompt a message box?
