QR-Code Font and Encoder Overview
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.
Encoder App QR Code FAQ
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
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.
Components labeled "Legacy" do not contain features added in 2019 or later such as the ability to encode GS1 and Image Overlay (Center Override). The complete source code for any single compiled encoder, such as the .NET
Windows Forms Control, for example, may be provided by request after the purchase of an Unlimited Developer License.
Just what the doctor ordered
My company was in need of a way to create dynamic QR codes on the fly to print on Renewal notices that would take customers directly to a personalized web page. The QR-Code Font and Encoder Suite product we purchased did the trick. Easily integrated into Crystal Reports by way of a formula provided, which simply reads a data field and converts to the proper QR code. I was literally testing within 1/2 hour of purchase. Many other formulas/encoders were included that integrate into Excel, Word and other applications. Very happy with the cost and would recommend to others looking to do the same.
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.
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.
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
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.
