Listen for a keystroke

I am trying to listen for a keystroke. I got an bar-code reader and I would like to scan an code. I got an keyboard emulator for this that types in the scanned code and then hits enter. I was wondering if I could listen for that and then do an action on that.

Unfortunately, I have not found a way to do this. I use the Screen's OnVisible property to SetFocus() to a textinput.

I had a similar question here if you'd like to follow it.

You can use a text input's OnChange property and it will trigger when enter is sent. I'm using this on Zebra devices and with barcode scanners on PC. Works well.

@Anonymous Is it possible to make it listen without clicking the text input first?
