This simple little calc will create a URL to generate a 2d barcode to be viewed in a web viewer

Sample Input:
Google2DBarcode ( 90 ; 90 ; "Hello this is the barcode I created" )
Sample Output:
http://chart.apis.google.com/chart?chs=90x90&cht=qr&chl=Hello+this+is+the+barcode+I+created&chld=L%7C1&choe=UTF-8


 Then copy & paste into FileMaker Advanced's Edit Custom Function window.

Description:

Nothing Fancy here just a quick custom function to generate a 2D barcode to enable users to scan data from the screen onto their phone or print out a 2D barcode to be read by a 2D reader. I am displaying the Barcode in a webviewer with 2 px padding on each side.

Note: these functions are not guaranteed or supported by BrianDunning.com. Please contact the individual developer with any questions or problems.

This is my Custom Function and I want to edit it

Discuss:

I am just a little confused on how you would implement this onto the web viewer, could you please give me some pointers.

Thanks

What would you like to to know exactly? The how is create a web viewer object on your layout than add this custom function as the url. This will then display the barcode in the web viewer.
