Getting the data from the serial port

EboEbo Member Posts: 1
Hi,

I have a barcode reader connected to my USB port.
I want to run a application that always gets the data that is scanned.
But i'm only getiing the data when my application is on top.
Otherwise the barcode is inserted in for instance Word ..

How do i get the output directed to 1 application at all times?

Thanks
Ebo

    you could always create a thread object that reads the data inside of your application
