    Default Re: Using barcode to input data

    What classes and methods do you have for reading the barcode? What do the method(s) return?
    Once you have read the barcode's value into a variable, it should be easy to put that value into a textfield usign the JTextfield's methods.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
