The Font DLL can be easily integrated into your ActiveX compliant application or development environment for barcode automation purposes. Our DLL contains functions for our DataMatrix, PDF417, POSTNET, PLANET, Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5, Code 128, UPC-A, EAN-13, EAN-8, UCC-128, MSI / Plessy, Code 11, RM4SCC, 4-State, SSCC-18 and SCC-14 barcode fonts and specifications.
The purpose of this Font DLL is to return a string formatted to one of our barcode fonts. If your application supports ActiveX Controls in Windows, we also sell easy to use "drag and drop" ActiveX Controls that may be easier to use in your application. Our Barcode ActiveX Controls have been tested in Microsoft Word, Access, Excel, Visual Basic and C++. In addition, our ActiveX Controls do not have any runtime requirements.
Our Font DLL is a "Global Multi-Use" DLL that supports Microsoft's Component Object Model (COM) and ActiveX Data Objects (ADO) 2.0. Because the DLL is Global Multi-Use, methods of the class (barcode functions) can be invoked as if they were global functions. It’s not necessary to explicitly create an instance of the class first, because one will automatically be created. We also have a (non-global) ActiveX "Multi-Use" DLL that also works as a UFL for Crystal Reports .
Licensing: Our ActiveX Font DLL is free to use and distribute with your application as long as you are using it with one of our licensed barcode fonts. Redistribution of our fonts and components requires a Corporate or Distribution License. NOTE: When selecting the font from the pull down menu, be sure not use the fonts that begin with the "@" Symbol. Instead, scroll down in the list and select the ones that begin with "ID-Automation".
Step1: Register the DLL. This can be accomplished automatically by an application installation utility or manually. To register the ActiveX DLL manually perform the following:
Step2: Make sure the VB 6.0 runtime files are installed on the destination machine; then, copy the DLL to the Windows\System directory and register it. To do this, go to the command prompt, change to the Windows\system directory and type the following command: REGSVR32 "IDAutomationFontEncoder.dll".
Step3: After registering the DLL, you can reference it from within your application. Refer to your application's documentation to find out how to do this. In Visual Basic 6.0 you need to choose Project - References and select the IDAutomationDLL. Then reference the class and function in your code as in this example:
'Get input from user StringToEncode = InputString.Text 'Format the Output by calling the "ID-AutomationDLL.Postnet()" function Output = ID-AutomationDLL.Postnet(StringToEncode,"0") 'Show the Printable Barcode String PrintableBarcodeString.Text = Output
