1D-barcodes can be created using a text field and the correct font.
Thank you .. I know that ... but this is not my main problem.
can this be done in AA?
Unless the viewer is Adobe Acrobat it's not likely to work.
well ... in fact, the AR does it wrong. also the one built-in to Chrome ... they show the text fields being the base for the codes. since i made them editable, i can change their contents ... but onBlur, both render the code rectangles plain gray .... when they were showing the QR codes based on the values upon creation. i explicitly downloaded the laters AR to verify that behavior in chrome.
only the PDF-XChance Viewer .. which I use for years as my preferred viewer .. does it right: when i change a value, onBlu it redraws the QR codes properly.
A shame that Adobe itself in unable to deal with their own features ... :-((((
Actually, that's exactly the expected and correct behavior for Reader. In order to be able to modify the value of a 2D barcode in Reader a special right has to be applied to the file first. Otherwise it can only show a static code.
in AA Pro, on tab Security, all privileges are granted ...
That's not related to this specific issue.
ok, anyway ... it would not solve my main issue. but it shows that the entry to that recalc() / redraw() is available. basically, i just needed to know that .. and have the form once it is displayed, calling it ...
maybe i can achieve that with js? i am solid in js, but not about the libs that I can call in a Adobe form ...
what do you think?
thanks for your answers.
If you want you can embed a script in the file that forces the fields to re-calcluate when the file is opened. The code is:
Not sure it will solve your problem, though.
