So if understand this correctly, you have to evaluate each character the user types? So if I wanted the user to scan a vendor code that would have a character limit of say 8 characters, I would have to store each of the 8 characters in a variable and then wait for a CRLF? It would seem the Receive method would be a bad place to put this since you could be accepting input for different fields (Vendor Part Number,etc.). So there's not way to produce a prompt like we do visually in Visual Foxpro or Visual Basic or do you have to write a prompt handler?
