Project Description

I have a system that create tickets. On each ticket is printed a unique barcode.

This ticket is used for submission to an event.

The user shows his ticket at the gate, with a USB barcode reader attached to a Windows PC/Laptop the ticket is scanned.

The barcode reader sends the barcode to the application. The barcode is checked against a .CSV file with a list of all the barcodes for the event.

If the barcode is there and has not already been scanned, the found barcode in the .CSV is updated as used and a green OK signal is shown on the application...the visitor may enter. Otherwise a red DOES NOT EXIST signal is sent to the barcode reader.

The application needs to run on a Windows OS (XP & 7).

Required features:

- Able to receive barcode via USB

- Able to input barcode manually by keyboard if scanner wont pick up barcode

- Validate against a CSV database

- Update CSV when barcode found from NOT USED TO USED

- Sourcecode for the app must be delivered on completion

- Written in VB or C/C++

- Most common usb barcode readers must be supported
