insert line feeds with PDF417Encoder.class

The Company I am working for has purchased your software. We need to insert line feeds into the pdf417 barcode. We are currently using the PDF417Encoder.class to produce the barcode.

Tried using ~010 and ~013 but they just appear as I have typed them. Is there a way to enable tildes with the java class?

Cheers,
Liam

Best Answer

Farrelll,

You could use char to encode the characters. For example:

Line Feed is (char)10

Return is (char)13

(char)10 works when I use it in the Java class:
pdfe.fontEncode("Line 1" + (char)10 + "Line 2");

I have not found a way to pass this through the BI Publisher call:
<?format-barcode:concat('Line 1',' + (char)10 +','Line 2');'pdf417';'XMLPBarVendor'?>

I am currently using the Java Class Encoder 'PDF417Encoder.class' which returns an encoded string to be used with the fonts. This class does not seem to have the setProcessTilde method.

I have looked at the PDF417.class in the Java Applet and Servlet library. This class has the tilde function, but I cant seem to get it to just pass the encoded string back.

I am using this class with BI Publisher to produce the barcode on a letter. Is there a way to get the PDF417 class to just return the encoded string? or is there a way to use the image in BI Publisher.

Thanks
