It depends on what type of device you are using to get your bar code scans. We have used some handheld devices from Intermec and PSC to get bar code reads. Intermec uses its own protocol that you communicate by sending codes over a COM port, while the PSC let you retrieve the scans just like you were reading keyboard input.
So check the documentation for the device that you will be using to actually do the scans.

Bar Code is Nothing but Text in diffrent font.
This is how we use i in our application. we simpally change the font of text to 'TT Code39SmallHigh-BT' or 'TT OCR-B-C39-BT' True type Font and thats all
and devices are able to read these Bar Codes..
_no Problem_
The fonts are Quoted are for MAC, i am not sure or equivelent Windows fonts.
Cheers
