[SOLVED] Barcode 128
Author: firstname.lastname@example.org (Colin)
Hello Everyone, I am trying to print a barcode using 128 symbology. Its a very simple code, up to 7 numerics (can sometimes be 6) followed by a TAB character. Because of the TAB character I am trying to use 128A. I cannot get it work no matter what I do. The font is installed and the usys.ini file has been changed to put the font into both the [PRINTER] and [SCREEN] sections. When I paint the field on the component and go to the widget properties to select the font, the barcode font appears in the list but shows text (the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog) as the preview. The lack of preview tells me something isn't quite right but because I know nothing of barcode128 I ignored that and moved on. I wrote a component that takes the string to be encoded and attempts to create the string the barcode128 requires including the checkdigit. I obviously an doing something wrong because despite hours of trying I can't fix it. Does anyone have any useful hints or tips, maybe even some sample code to help me out? Thanks in advance.
