Does the Native Generator for FileMaker support UPC or EAN?

Good evening:

We are FileMaker users, and now we are making our own application. We had purchased your Native Barcode Generator and works fine, but now we need to use EAN13 for some small products.

Is there any plugin or extension to make EAN13 instead of 128, 39, CODABAR, etc?

Ardentia,

The Native Barcode Generator does not support EAN or UPC barcodes.
For this you will need to use our UPC/EAN Font Advantage Package, along with the Font Encoder Filemaker Plugin.

When you get to step 6 you will use the IDAu_EAN13 function instead of the IDAu_Code128 one.

We also have a video tutorial and Demo.

Ardentia,

Thank you for the information, I believe I know what the problem is. For 203 DPI printers like the one is being used, an x dimension of 16 mils should be used with this component. Setting the point size to 4 will give 16 mils.

The x dimension is the width of the narrow bar, and mils is measured in thousandths of an inch.

Give this a try and see if this fixes the problem.

Thank you very much.

The principal issue is that we have serious problems printing 128 codebar (small labels). They can't be read. We are printing on a Zebra TLP 2844 and the font is Arial, size 1. Do you have any suggestion without move to other code types?
