This Microsoft InfoPath Barcode Tutorial outlines how to integrate barcode generation in InfoPath forms without installing fonts, plug-ins or components by using the Dynamic Barcode Generator Service, which supports all popular linear barcode types and 2D symbols such as PDF417, MaxiCode, Data Matrix, QR-Code and more.
tutorial uses the free version of the Dynamic
Barcode Generator Service, which includes a watermark. After
purchase or implementation of IDAutomation's other
streaming barcode products, a unique web address will be available that excludes the watermark.
In the demo version of the Dynamic Barcode Generator Service the text of "DEMO" along with a CR and LF function will be automatically encoded in the barcode.

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 and Last Name) into a DataMatrix symbol.
concat("https://www.bcgen.com/demo/IDAutomationStreamingDataMatrix.aspx?D=", EmployeeID, "~d009", FirstName, "~d013", LastName)
Create QR-Code vCards by concatenating the desired contact fields to encode into barcode:
concat("https://www.bcgen.com/demo/IDAutomationStreamingQRCode.aspx?D=", "MECARD:N:", LastName, ",", FirstName, ";", "TEL:", PhoneNumber, ";", "EMAIL:", Email)
Barcode scanned returns: MECARD:N:Jones,Joe;TEL:555-123-4567;EMAIL:email@example.com
