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.
