Developer's Description

The PDF417 Encoder plug-in allows the FileMaker developer to create PDF417 2-d barcodes using a FileMaker function. The function returns an image that can be placed in any container field.

  • Provides complete control over barcode dimensions and error correction, or let these values be chosen automatically
  • Barcode image can be generated at any size or orientation
  • Micro-PDF barcodes may be produced when space is limited
  • Macro-PDF allows large amounts of data to span several barcodes
  • Automatic transcoding of FileMaker character set eliminates problems with international characters. Automatic conversion to Windows line endings eliminates hassles with Windows-centric barcode readers
  • Barcodes are generated as images native to the platform, so no special fonts are needed
  • Runs natively on Mac OS X (PPC and Intel) and Windows

  • Legacy functions from previous versions still work, so you are not forced to alter existing scripts
  • Versions for FileMaker 4.2-6 are still available
