Distribute Crystal Report

We have a VB6-application that uses Crystal Reports for printing orderinformation (with a crystalviewer.dll).
We have a customer that uses our application who asked us if we could generate a QR-Code in one report.
The customer doesn´t have Crystal Reports so I have to fix the report.
I have downloaded the DEMO-version of QRCodeWindowsFontEncoder and got it to work on my machine (with the text Demo embedded in the QR-Code).

If I now want to send this report to our customer, which product does the customer need to get this working whitout getting the embedded DEMO text in the QR?

That is code from the QR Code UFL. As long as the VB application can view Crystal Reports, you may have your client install both the QR Code Font and the QR Code UFL, to be able to see the barcode on the report in their application. Keep in mind, as on any Crystal Report, these are external dependencies.

If another type of 2D barcode was being used, like DataMatrix for example, then there are Native Barcode Generators for Crystal Reports that do not require any external dependencies outside of the report. As it stands now, there is not a Native option for QR Code.

Outside of the report, the QR Code font and COM DLL may be referenced to generate QR Code from within the application itself.

* Yes QR Code is the only option that will be used.

* I have created a formula in Crystal Reports with the following code
stringVar DataToEncode:= {MyTable.MyField};
stringVar CompleteBarcodeString:="";
numberVar i:=0;
numberVar Segments:= IDAutomationQRCodeEncoderQRSet(DataToEncode,0 ,0 ,0 ,0 );
For i:=0 to Segments Do
(
CompleteBarcodeString := CompleteBarcodeString + IDAutomationQRCodeEncoderQRGet(i);
);
CompleteBarcodeString

Thank you for the clarification. I have the following questions for you:

* Is QR Code the only option, or is the requirement just any 2D barcode?

* Were you using the QR Code UFL on the Crystal Report?

Thank you for your answer.

Just so I get this right:
I will purchase the QR-Code Font and Encoder Font Package (Developer License) and create a Crystal Report with a QR-Code based on a value in the report.

Then I will send this report to our customer who will use this report in a VB6-application. Doesn´t our customer also need something installed that can encode and print the QR-Code?

To not show the 'Demo' in the scan, the QR-Code Font and Encoder Font Package may be purchased. The relevant license would be the Developer License option in the purchase link. Make sure to remove the demo product before installing the purchased version.
