    Flex Peripheral Device Support

    msmughal
      I'm trying to decide whether Flex is the right tool for me on a new development project I'm thinking about. I have a couple of requirements that I'm not sure if Flex will be able to meet. It's also possible that a combination of technologies with Flex may solve my issue. It is also possible that what I am trying to achieve is outside the boundaries of a web flex application.

      I would like to create a web application that also has the ability to utilize the Windows API. I am also interested in controlling peripheral devices like, cameras, pin pad devices, biometric devices, scales, and barcode readers. I have not been able to find anything on the internet regarding these questions.

      I also cant seem to find a report generator for Flex. Normally a development environment like Delphi or VS includes some type of report writer. Is there some kind of report writer for Flex?

      Any help would be very much appreciated.

          Does anyone have any advice here? I can't be the only one trying to attempt
          this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
