Barcode Generator and IWP

Recommended Posts

This category isn't too active but hopefully someone picks this up.

I need to generate barcodes via IWP. I have been using IDautomation's barcode generator plugin which is great, however when using IWP, if try to load a layout that contains a barcode, IWP crashes on the server side. The developer tells me that it was never tested with IWP and they don't actually know if it would or should work.

Any suggestions or alternatives would be much appreciated.

Thanks

is the barcode an image in a container field?

Webcodet™ (offered along with Barcodet™ by Life $uccess Institute) generates Code 39 graphic images that can be used for IWP. Don't know if that's what your looking for. But it's pretty useful in that situation.

Their website isn't great. I see no mention of Webcodet. Barcodet needs to be ordered via a fax form and there's no download option. Do you know of any way to demo webcodet?

You didn't scroll down the bar codes page. Webcodet is, indeed, there. BTW, they've added demos of both Texcodet and Webcodet.

Thanks. Yes I did find them and I need code 128 so I can't use webcodet. I have been testing texcodet, but the demo is much too limited for me to determine if it will work.

I contacted the company, but they couldn't really tell me if texcodet would work and I can't really figure out its use from the description.

Basically I need to generate code 128 barcodes from a alphanumeric field in my records. The barcode must be able to be displayed over IWP. Preferably, I do not want to install fonts on all of the computers that may access this via IWP. It sounds like texcodet may work, but I don't really want to waste my money if it doesn't.

If you know flash, maybe you could write a bar code generator in flash that would convert any text fed to it into code128.

You'd have to invest some time to learn how to convert text to bars but I learned and made a code128 font & calculations in a couple days so I can tell you that the concepts are not as difficult as you might imagine.
