I have a mobile page that our company uses to scan in parts sent and received. The user has the options of hand entering it on the hand held barcode scanner or they can scan it in. I need a way to detect if the user has hand entered it or scanned it. Right
now we use a space prefix that automatically is put at the beginning of the barcode scanned but some users have caught this and will put a space before they hand enter a barcode. The main goal of detecting this is to find out if its the users fault or our
fault when they use the scanner. Any help would be appreciated.

Instead of a space, you need to use another character that the user cannot enter manually.

I have also thought about that to but all the characters it allows me to use is on the handheld scanner.
