    Barcode failed to display in PDF with XFDF

      Hi,

       

      I am a newbie in this forum and if you found my topic should not be posted here,
      please kindly let me know.

       

      I have a question about online filling data to a PDF and hope someone can help me.

       

      I am having a XFDF and PDF and data will be filled into PDF online. One of the fields
      on the PDF is a code 3 of 9 (code39) barcode. The PDF has embedded the code39
      font in it but the PDF does not format the text values into barcode form.

       

      I found an article in web showing how to show barcode on PDF with XFDF

       

      <field name="Barcode" type="barcode" symbology="pdf417" >
              <value>
                  PDF-417 is a "stacked linear" symbology invented by
                  Symbol.  The iText library makes it very easy to embed this
                  symbology in a PDF file.
              </value>
      </field>

       

      Must I specify this format in the XFDF file such that the PDF knows the text field is
      a barcode format?

       

      Should I change the 'symbology="pdf417"'  into 'symbology="code39"' ?

       

      If you have any experience on this issue, please kindly share it with me.

       

      Thanks a lot,
      Raymond
