I wrote a stack some years ago that worked with a barcode reader, which
I had never seen and did not have access to. I just used normal
keydown/keyup and "on returnkey" handlers, and it all worked fine. There
was no difference between keyboard entry and barcode entry. So what you
say works. I warned the client they'd have to test, and it never failed
in any way.

It was the Evangelists list, but I only read it, I never posted. And
yes, I can't believe where the time goes.
