P: n/a
I'm looking at building in bar code ability to an intranet library
application (asp.net vb). Any suggestions on where to look for
documentation, examples or components would be appreciated.

If you want to write bar codes, you could download a barcode font on the
server, use GDI+ to generate a GIF.

So to include in a page, you would have something like :

<IMG src='barcode.aspx?1234567'/>

where 1234567 is the barcode.

PS

I've not tried this, I have just thought it up now, but I do know barcode
fonts exists as I have used them for FAT CLIENT apps.

I am going to need to look into an entire solution; hardware scanners and
such. I was wondering if anyone has any comments on experience with such
systems.

Two things that may not seem too obvious at first...

1. You cant scan a screen image of a barcode. At least not on a normal
screen. You will need to have printed barcodes and use the scanner to
get the barcode.

2. Most cheap barcode scanners use a driver called a "keyboard wedge"
or some such terminology. This means that when you scan something it
ends up as keyboard codes - as if you typed the value of the barcode
in on the keyboard. If the cursor is on a text box, it gets typed in
directly.
