Font Encoders

Self-checking barcode fonts, such as Codabar and Code 39, only require an asterisk * before and after the data-to-encode, while all other barcode fonts require more advanced formatting to create a correct barcode symbol. IDAutomation offers several font encoders that allow for easy integration of barcode fonts in a variety of applications and development environments. These encoders may be used royalty-free if a license for one of IDAutomation's barcode fonts has been purchased. In the case of one-off barcode generation, consider the free Online Barcode Font Encoder, which will return an encoded text string that may be pasted into your application where the font can be applied to it.
