The FileMaker Pro Barcode Tutorial
tutorial uses the free version of the Dynamic
Barcode Generator Service, which includes a watermark below the generated
purchase, a unique web address will be provided that excludes the watermark.
In the free version of the Dynamic Barcode Generator Service a watermark will appear below the generated symbol. Therefore, if symbol size is being evaluated, only the purchased version should be used. The watermark does not appear in the purchased version. 2D barcodes may be created by entering the web addresses below into the Web Viewer as described in the tutorial:
For example, a DataMatrix barcode is easily created in FileMaker using the
"http://www.bcgen.com/demo/IDAutomationStreamingDataMatrix.aspx?D="& EmployeeIDBadge::Employee Number
NOTE: If SSL encryption is desired, change "http" to "https".
Using the IDAutomation Dynamic Barcode Generator Service, multiple fields may be easily combined, appended or delimited within a single barcode symbol by using the ApplyTilde feature. The following example encodes (Employee ID, the tab function, First Name, the return function, Last Name and the text of FileMaker DataMatrix Barcode) into a DataMatrix symbol.
EmployeeIDBadge::Employee Number & "~d009" & EmployeeIDBadge::First Name &
"~d013" & EmployeeIDBadge::Last Name & " FileMaker DataMatrix Barcode"
* Versions prior to 2009 used "Barcode=" in place of "D=" when entering Data To Encode.
