Connecting USB Barcode Scanners client side - reg

Is it possible to connect USB supported barcode Scanners from Ignition client.

Typically, you would set up a USB barcode scanner to emulate a keyboard, so on the client it pretty much behaves the same way a keyboard entry would. Of course there are any number of special cases, but usually it is very straightforward.

Is there any way from Ignition to detect whether a bluetooth scanner becomes disconnected from client computer? Using it as a keyboard input with barcode module.
