C# Windows App - Reading the Barcode

I have a C# windows app in VS professional 2015. I want to read in a 2D barcode using the DS22 barcode scanner and parse out the data in the barcode but it is not sending in the special characters to separate the string.

I tried using the Rich Text input and Text input but they don't pass in the special characters. The only one that appears is '\u001e' in the text input but there are more that separate the data. it will appear in Microsoft Word but not in notepad or wordpad. How do i get the input un modified?
