IDAutomation.com Granted Patent for Generating Barcodes without Barcode Fonts or Graphic Objects.
(Tampa, FL.) IDAutomation.com, Inc. has been granted a patent for a method used to generate a printable barcode object, which encodes data from within a particular software application. This method may be used to create several linear and 2D barcode types including Code-128, GS1-128, Code-39, Postnet, QR-Code, Data Matrix and PDF417.
Traditionally, specialized barcode fonts or graphic generation objects need to be installed before barcodes can be printed from a standard software application. The new patented method generates barcodes from standard Unicode system fonts, eliminating the need to install additional barcode fonts. Since Unicode is a standard, the same method may be used on a variety of operating systems, including Windows, MAC, Unix, and Linux.
While the Patent US 7,637,436 B1 has been recently granted, IDAutomation has been utilizing this technology since 2006 with patent-pending status within several barcode generation products, which include:
- Native Barcode Generator for Crystal Reports: Easily add barcodes to Crystal Reports without installing special fonts, UFLs or plug-ins.
- Native FileMaker Pro Barcode Generator Plug-In: Easily create barcodes in FileMaker Pro layouts with one calculated field.
- Native Barcode Generator for Oracle Reports: Easily add barcodes to Oracle Reports without installing special fonts.
Each of the above IDAutomation barcode generation products will allow you to utilize this newly patented system of generating barcodes within specific applications without installing individual fonts or other components, thereby increasing efficiency and productivity in your workplace.
IDAutomation provides barcode fonts, components and software applications that support several barcode types. IDAutomation.com, Inc. has been marketing products for businesses since 1996 and is privately held. For more information,
