Barcode Reader and Caps lock

P: n/a
I have a second hand bar code reader (keyboard wedge) en i can read
the bar codes but after every scan he turns my caps lock on.
(GRRRRRR).

I search a code to turn my caps lock off or can anyone tell me why
(the hell)it happens that way.

There is an API call which will set these for you. I use it for a comment field at
a clients where the manager got ticked at his people keying in comments in upper
case.

HOWTO: Toggle the NUM LOCK, CAPS LOCK, and SCROLL LOCK Keys

Did you try or are you guessing?

I've just scrolled through the code and I can't see anything that shouldn't
work on A97. The instructions for A97 would be:

1. Open the form in design mode.
2. - 4. same.
5. Open the form in normal mode.
