You'll need to provide more details to get any help. Are you trying to print barcodes or scanning them? What is the PDA you are using? If you are just trying to scan barcodes, all barcode scanners I have seen look like keyboards as far as software is concerned, the software doesn't know that it is a barcode scanner that is entering numbers and just thinks that a user is typing the numbers on a keyboard. That's pretty much all I know about the subject, but if you want others with more knowledge on the subject to help you, you'll have to explain what you are trying to achieve in more detail.

Agree with jankier...more details required.

We have done this many different ways. We still support and maintain our legacy wireless app and used a tool from Jargon Software. It simply makes http post requests to webspeed.

Our new mobile apps were done in OEMobile, then ported to Telerik Platform and now rewritten using NativeScript. All of these mobile apps used REST to get to the server.

I depends which terminal is running your client.

Is it linux chui?

is it windows gui?

is it something else?

It depends.  

For instance, if you are using client networking on windows,

just plug the scanner to the PC and start reading barcodes...  

It also depends on scanner.   Some scaners are pre-configured to just send the barcode to the client and nothing else. Most of the cases you should configure the scanner to send a RETURN code just after the value that was read by the laser (or whatever technology is the scanner using).

Yes, you should provide much more info on your configuration to get some reommendations.
