Hi all,

I am new to power builder 2017 but have used much older version of power builder in the past.  I would like to use power builder 2017 to print barcode labels with info from our DB.  So basically i would  be looking for a data window that, when called, would get all the info then print the barcode out and then print that to a label printer.  I was told that in order to get power builder to do  that it would take a 3rd party scripting product.  Does any one do something like that now and if so does any one recommend any 3rd party products for this application.

 

thanks in advance!

It could be as simple as installing a barcode font. Please give us more detail.

I have a free example program that shows how to use the US Postal Service mailing barcode. The font files are included.

Hi.

There are some free barcode true type fonts on the internet. So the question is: what kind of barcode do you want to print?
