The New FileMaker 2D Barcode Font Encoder is Here!

by Nate Schubert

2D Barcode Fonts have been available from IDAutomation for years. These packages include a variety of different font and graphic encoder tools for use in a range of applications and environments such as .NET Forms Controls, ActiveX Controls, Java Components and more. This has been a great solution for users and developers working within those environments, but it did not pose a worthwhile solution for generating 2D barcodes in FileMaker Pro, versions 8.5 and up.

The most recent addition to the font encoder family included in all 2D barcode font packages is the FileMaker Plugin. This special tool encodes data for Data Matrix, QR Code and PDF417 barcode types and is available in all versions of these 2D font packages.
