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.

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.
