What is the difference between the FileMaker Native Generator Plug-In and the Font Encoder Plug-In?


I am confused because you have two different products that are named FileMaker Plug-Ins

Best Answer

IDAutomation provides a few options for creating barcodes in FileMaker Pro. Two of our most popular products include the: (1) Native FileMaker Pro Barcode Generator (Plug-In) and (2) FileMaker Pro Font Encoder (Plug-In)


NATIVE FILEMAKER PRO BARCODE GENERATOR

The Native FileMaker Pro Barcode Generator is a product that generates barcodes without the use of a barcode font. It is a plug-in that is installed into your Extensions directory and can be used by simply calling a function. The code inside of the plug-in is designed to build the barcode using a mono-spaced font such as Times New Roman, Courier New, or Arial.

FILEMAKER PRO FONT ENCODER WITH BARCODE FONTS

The FileMaker Pro Font Encoder is a tool that works with a barcode font to generate scannable barcodes. Once the barcode fonts are installed and the plug-in is in your Extensions directory, you will have access to functions to encode data. Learn more about encoding
