Barcode, Scanner, and FMPro Integration


Are there any resources that anyone can point me too regarding the use of barcode scanners with FMPro? I've successfully loaded a barcode font and created the barcode field for each entry.

Now, I just need more information about how to make a scanner work with FMPro so that I can figure out which one to get that will suit our needs.

Do they all basically work the same? Is there some sort of programmable software that comes with the scanner that allows you to program in different functions? Do you have to do anything on the Filemaker side to get them to cooperate with each other?
