Hello all--
My magnetic reader outputs a string of characters as if it was a regular keyboard -- is there a way to capture this entire string at the console with some kind of event? Assuming that swiping a card will fire a keyEvent, how would I capture all 100+ characters that are read from the card at once?
Thanks in advance,
Paul
