EAN-8 Barcode generator

This is a EAN-8 barcode generator without any ttf fonts. I want to thank Marek for creating such an utility for EAN-13.

Generated barcode is saved as a png image file and can be used for printing or showing in a window afterwards.

This utility requires HMG 3.1.4 and uses HFCL BosTaurus graphics library for image creation.

Hope it is useful.

Thanks for sharing Rathi, many people will serve as an example for the development of your application, and there is not much literature about barcodes in our language (Harbour / HMG).

Gracias por compartir Rathi, a mucha gente servira como ejemplo para el desarollo de su aplicacion; ya que no hay mucha bibliografia acerca de codigos de barra en nuestro lenguaje (Harbour / HMG ).

Hi Rathi

Does something like this will be useful ? :

Code: Select all

         TOOLTIP "Enter 8 digit code ( 7 digit for automatic checksum producing )"
as an addition to barcode.code.

Regards

That is very odd. The message 'Invalid Code!' is given for codes having length < 7 or > 8. Therefore, please verify the length of the code (is there any space?).

It works fine for me.

Maybe space at the beginning?
