Hardware link to VB .net

P: n/a
Hi Guys,

Does anyone of you tried to use VB .net to integrate it
to hardware? I'm planning to create a program that reads
the code of the person that when he swipes his card on
the hardware i'll be able to read the code from the card..

Most PC card readers come with their own software-based driver that
converts it to text input. At that point, VB.net treats it just like
it was typed in.

Sorry guys the specs was change instead, we will be using
the "pentablet" hardware for signature and then we will
capture the signature and save it into the database. How
can I read it from the software of the pentablet using
the VB .net?

Thanks for tour immediate reply.
