The main code is the barcode read event handler. You have to wrap GUI updates in Delegate/Invoke or you will get problems earlier or later.

void BarcodeReader_BarcodeRead ( object sender, Intermec.DataCollection.BarcodeReadEventArgs bre )
{
brc = bre;
try
{
this.Invoke( new EventHandler(UpdateListBox) );
}
catch
{
}
}
/*

protected void UpdateListBox( object sender, EventArgs e )
{

String t;
if ( brc.Symbology > 0 && brc.Symbology < 0x20 )
{
t = bctype[brc.Symbology];
}
else
{
t = "n/a " + brc.Symbology.ToString();
}
s = "*" + brc.strDataBuffer + "* – " + t;
/* convert control codes */

lblBarcode.SelectedIndex = lblBarcode.Items.Count – 1;
}
