Recomendations for scanning and barcode reading?

I'm researching a VB .NET project that will have two functions:
1 - scan images using TWAIN drivers of scanner
2 - read barcode of that scanned image

I've been researching many companies and was wondering if anyone had any
recommendations of any options about the companies I've listed here. Your
input is appreciated!

The thing here is that I like Dosadi:EZTwain. ..but they don't offer barcode
recognition. It seems these are the only ones that offer SDKs that can do
both...scan using TWAIN drivers and barcode recognition.
* Pegasus Imaging: TWAIN PRO, Smart Express Barcode v3
* AccuSoft: ImageGear v14
* ClearImage (though I'm not sure about the ability to scan using TWAIN
drivers)

TIA

Hi,

Maybe you can use the decode function of the barcode link with the
scanning.

I assume that when I use a barcode reader (at least some of them) it will input the number as though it was entered in via the keyboard How can I then get the value without setting to focus to a textbox control I don't want the user to see the scanned number but I still need a way to read the value, in addition, I need an event that will be fired once the barcode was read in full so I know it actually finished reading Thank you, Samuel

Hi, I am in the design phase of building a database that will track the productivity of my warehouse. I am thinking of using a barcode scanner to assist me with this. Employees will hopefully be scanning a barcode which will communicate to the computer that the employee did some type of task. Employees will be identified by ID badges which will contain string data to identify them and hopefully log them in. Is this a good way to keep...

I need to have 2 simple barcode reader applications finished by midnight tonight. I have never written any barcode reader software and need any help that you may be able to offer.

I need to check the barcodes scanned to see if they are in a database of acceptable barcodes and simply show ACCEPT or...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.
