      COMM-UNITY NETWORKING SYSTEMS RELEASES CNS BARCODE 1.3.1, A FILEMAKER PRO PLUG-IN.

       

      Fort Worth, TX, November 1, 2012 -- Comm-Unity Networking Systems announces an update for CNS Barcode to version 1.3.1. This FileMaker Pro plug-in brings barcode scanning and generating to the desktop. Version 1.3.1 fixes a few bugs and includes a complete rewrite of the ScanWindow code on Mac. CNS Barcode is available immediately at http://cnsbarcode.cnsplug-ins.com/ for both Mac OS(R) X and Windows(R).

        

       

      Description

       

      CNS Barcode for FileMaker Pro is a plug-in that brings the power of barcodes to your FileMaker Solution. Like its sibling product, CNS Barcode for iOS, this plug-in can both scan and generate barcodes. CNS Barcode can scan JPEG or PNG images containing barcodes or it can use an attached webcam to scan any barcodes held up to the camera. Any of the barcode formats you can scan, you can also create with the plug-in, including Codabar, Code 3 of 9 (Code 39), Code 3 of 9 Ext. (Code 39+), Code 93, Code 128, DataBar-14, DataBar-14 Stacked, EAN 2, EAN 5, EAN 8, EAN 13, EAN 14, EAN 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, ISBN, QR Code, UPC A, and UPC E.

       

      Whether you already have products with barcodes or if you want to start using barcodes to track your assets, CNS Barcode is easy to set up and use. If you need to create barcodes, the CNSBC_Generate function will take any data you have in your database and create a PNG, EPS, or SVG image of the barcode format of your choosing. You can then print out and affix the barcodes to the objects you need to track. When you need to scan one of your barcodes, the CNSBC_ScanWindow function will bring up a video preview of your webcam for you to see what you are scanning. When the plug-in recognizes the barcode, it will use one of three actions that you define. It can close the scanning window and return the barcode data to the script that opened the window; it can call a script in your database and pass it the barcode data; or it can set a field in your database with the barcode data. Unlike the first action, the script calling and field setting actions leave the scanning window open for you to scan more barcodes.
