printing barcode 3 of 9
Úsing FM14, I can see the barcode 3 of 9 in the layout mode, but when i print it comes only the numbers. I cant figure out what im doing wrong. Anyone can help me?
What do you mean by "I can see it in layout mode"? What EXACTLY are you seeing?
Many bar codes can be printed from a field formatted with the correct bar code font.
I have a sequence of numbers in a document, that i changed to font 3of9 barcode.
I works well in the layout mode, i can see the barcode in my document.
But when i print this document, it prints the sequence of numbers, not the barcodes
It would appear that you have simply repeated your original post. What you want to do should be very straight forward but the devil is in the details of your design and implementation. You'll need to share even the most obvious details of how you designed your layout and how you are using that layout to print a bar code.
Hello Edouardo. I have the same issue. We have 4 FMP station but only one is having this problem. I can print the Form with the barcode on 3 station out of 4 stations, on any printer. On the same problematic station, I can print barcode using other software. Did you find a cure?
Apparently some mis-communication happened getting the rendered font from the computer to the printer. Using an image in a container field for the barcode instead of a font would eliminate that problem. Barcode Creator is one solution for generating barcodes as images. (Disclosure: I wrote Barcode Creator.)
You May need to enclose the Feild data in *
I use IDautomation39 and had to add the * on each End of the Number feild
Did you install the (same) barcodefont on that computer?
Can you see the barcode in the preview mode?
the original posting was written under the old 'RightNow' forum - Not sure, if the early posters are still around..
Basically, for code 39 one needs to add '*' in front and end of the barcode-string and a barcode39-font, as Fratinize and Karina mentioned (same font on all machines). A barcode with field-content '1234' needs to show as '*1234*', using a helper field or whatever
Marcus is right.
And a wrong barcode will show in the layout mode and the browse mode, but not in the preview mode and not on the printer.
That's because the 3 of 9 type just draws a line each time you type an character, but if you do as Marcus suggested. It will make it scalable as well.
scalable = scannable
Appears that your printer does not want to render the barcode font, and substitutes a font it does know. If you can preview the barcode, and further if you can save as PDF and you still see the barcode, then see if you can print to another printer.
Hi Karina. The problem went away by itself. Probably via an update or ... ? Thanks for your help anyway,
