The barcode reader is basically the same as inputting a bunch of characters by hand right? You can have a text field that takes in the barcode, and if you set the barcode to have a carriage return after (Either in the barcode itself, or as part of the barcode reader), then on the WHEN-VALIDATE-ITEM trigger of the text item, you can perform your operation.
So basically the user (or the form) places the cursor into the barcode text field. Scan the barcode, and since there is a carriage return at the end, then any code you want will be executed in your trigger.
