    1) I understand that this software can be used to create a custom gui for a barcode scanner using windows mobile 5.0 correct?

    2) How do import information from the barcode scanner into a flat file? Can this program help me do that?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

    Search the forum for "barcode" or "scanner", there are quite a few posts about this.

    Yes I did but the main one with information from Erel when I try to download the zip file in his post it says I do not have adequate permissions.

    The functionality of the Barcode library can be achieved with the Door library.
    I've attached a simple program which shows how to add the TextChanged event to a textbox.

    You should add TextBox1.Focus at the beginning of your program.
    Now whenever you scan a barcode the value will appear in the textbox.
    You can take this value and write it to a file with FileWrite.

    The relevant code which should be placed in sub TextBox1TextChangedEvent_NewEvent is:
    If StrLength(TextBox1.Text) < 2 Then 'Ignore keyboard.
            TextBox1.Text = ""
    End If
        Form1.Text = TextBox1.Text
        TextBox1.Text =
