    Each symbology will have their own function and parameter, this is an example of the Code 128 Barcode:  IDAutomation_Uni_C128(DataToEncode)

Create Filemaker Pro 1D (linear) barcodes with IDAutomation's custom barcode functions that can be embedded in the Filemaker database for easy distribution. The only installation required would be the corresponding IDAutomation barcode font for the barcode to render. Compatible with Mac and Windows (32 & 64 bit) versions of FileMaker Pro 12 and above. Barcode functions available for Code 128, GS1-128, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 93, MSI Plessey, Codabar, UPCA, UPCE, EAN8 and EAN13. The encoder is free to use with the purchase of an IDAutomation barcode font.

User Feedback



IDAutomation recently introduced a new way of barcoding in Filemaker without the need of installing barcode fonts, they now have a barcode generator that uses javascript embedded in the report. It's so much easier to use now!
