QR-Code Font and Encoder Overview

QR-Code Font and Encoder Software This QR-Code package generates QR-Code symbols with font encoders and graphic encoders. IDAutomation's QR-Code software products support byte, text, and numeric encoding modes according to QR Code 2005, ISO/IEC 18004:2006, and ISO/IEC 18004:2015 specifications. Because many scanners and decoders cannot easily read large symbols, IDAutomation suggests limiting the data encoded in a QR-Code barcode to 800 characters or less.

In addition to the advantages mentioned previously, the following features are provided in this package:

  • This advanced QR Code barcode font uses IDAutomation Vertical Interleaved Technology, allowing for increased throughput and printing at small X dimensions. 
  • Examples for Microsoft® Excel, Access, Word, SSRS, FileMaker, OpenOffice, and Crystal Reports are included.
  • Custom tilde functions allow an easy method to encode tabs and returns between fields within a QR barcode symbol.
  • International language and Unicode encoding are supported as UTF-8 in Excel, Word, Access, and Crystal Reports.

Multiple QR-Code Encoders Provided

QR-Code Encoder Features Comparison

Multiple encoders in the QR-Code generator software provide more options for integration into various applications and environments. It is necessary to use an encoder because of the complexity of QR-Code encoding and error correction algorithms. Font encoders return a text string that will generate a readable QR-Code barcode when combined with the appropriate QR-Code 2D font. The features chart below lists the encoders provided within each package.

Review by GILSAR LTD on 1/14/2020

The QR Code is put on each of our invoices. The product was easy to install and apply. I haven't asked technical support for help so far, and have no comments with it.

Very Helpful

Review by Carlo on 2/16/2019

Currently using in an Excel application for our batching system in our factory. We may be looking at using it in Crystal Reports soon. It was relatively easy to follow the Excel tutorial on your website. I believe Nate from the Sales staff is the only person I've dealt with so far, and he was very helpful in helping me select the correct license.

Very Happy

Review by Peter on 2/1/2019

I am using your product to produce a QR Code from Crystal Reports so the college can product a label to stick onto a student assessment, paper based, to allow filing and retrieval for moderation. 1D barcodes were not able to contain the information (and would have had scan errors) and I had tried another prodcut for 2D codes but their QR Code was always corrupted so was very happy when your solution worked. The QR Code is only one part of the workflow, the process has saved the teaching staff hours in that they don't have to manually save and file documents. We will probably produce about 3,000 labels a year. Installation was relatively straightforward, although I tripped myself up with the package I installed, Ben with your technical support staff was helpful in providing assistance.

Works as Expected

Review by Giorgio on 4/4/2018

I have my QR-codes already in the report of my Access database. It was exactly the type of tool I was looking for. It is one cornerstone for my application, which is not implemented right now but progressing. Thank you.

Very Good Module

Review by Rob on 3/27/2018

As usual, IDAutomation provides with QR-Code module an easy to implement module that works straight away ! Thanks :)
