Code 128 Font not added to iOS project


Attempting to add true type code 128 fonts we purchased to a test iPhone application. This app has numerous over fonts, (including another companies barcode which we are looking to replace) which all work fine. I've added the font to the project and added the necessary keys in the plist, but the font doesn't load into the available font families. I tried numerous sizes and the human readable as well as non, all to no avail. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the response, I got it resolved, it was totally my fault. When adding the font files to the project, the "Add to targets" check box is defaulted to No, so even though the fonts were visible in the Project Navigator, they weren't bound to my app and thus not loading.

Hello Matt,

We do have an XCode project that uses our free code 39 font to generate the barcode.
http://downloads.idautomation.com/IDAutomation_XCode_Barcode_Generator.zip

Here is the font set up procedures we used to embed the font in the app.
https://support.idautomation.com/Barcode-Fonts/iPhone-and-iPad-Barcode-Font-Integration/_31

Since Code 128 requires special encoding for the barcode to be readable, we have a VBA macro that can be translated into objective C.
http://downloads.idautomation.com/BarcodeFunctions.zip

I suggest converting the Code128b method for starters, because that is the easiest of the code 128 routines. The Code128 method is our auto encoding method where it will change the sub set as needed depending on the data.

Would you be willing to add these routines to this project and email it back to us at support@idautomation.com, so we can add it to the download?

That would be most helpful.
