Re: How can I determine input whether coming from...
Why you need to know from which it is comming? As a wedge is 2 inputs is merged as 1 output. There is no way to tell unless you use special coding in the BArcode that cannot be manually keyin. If I know your need maybe there is a altermnate way to do it.

Your scanner may be set/programmed for a mode other than "keyboard wedge". Scanners typically come with a quick start guide with multiple barcodes that you can scan to program the scanner for your particular needs.
If you are trying to scan into Notepad or other text application, you will want to make sure the scanner is in keyboard emulation/wedge mode, and if you want it to have a "return" or "tab" after the scanned barcode, you should have options for that also.
If you have a used scanner and do not have the quick start guide or manual, you will want to look it up and download it from the manufacturers website.
hello, once you have it connected to your computer via usb, serial or keyboard wedge, you scan the barcodes that come in the user guide to set it up, its pretty much a plug and play. you can find the quick start guide at
I seldom do this ...but I will comment on the Zebex scanner. This is ...errr ... not the best choice for future scanner needs. I will never forget commercial Zebex experience. They should have stuck to anti freeze (just kidding).
However if it did work and now doesn't there is one problem that is so obvious no one thinks of it ... check the clear plastic protector on teh front and see if it need cleaned. Greasy environments usually fog it over time.
I have the Zebex default codes somewhere in the shop ... but you can replace that scanner with a nice PSC, Mot, or Intermec for about 120.00 why not do that?
You could use a ps2 splitter cable to connect both the barcode scanner and the keyboard to the pc.
You would also have to use the correct scanner codes to ensure that the scanner is configured properly.
Alternatively, you could try connecting the scanner with only the ps2 to usb and miss out the extension cable to determine if that is the problem.
If the scanner is a ps2 wedge scanner, it will need reprogrammed with the correct scanner codes for usb.
First of all,have you tried using a notepad ? just to verify that your scanner connected correctly to your pc
If it's fine then you should find out if there's an enabled properties of your object such as text box, combo box, that was set to False,change it into true.
are you using usb keyboards if so set the scanners to stand alone keyboard wedge you will find this in the manual.
if this is not the case it could be that the scanner is set for a different keyboard type just set the scanner for keyboard wedge emulation.
hope this helps
