How can I generate bar codes from my ninox database ?
C

Hello,

My company is using Ninox. We have a database which contains all our references. I'd like to know how can I generate a bar code for each reference and how can I scan it ? The best could be to generate one bar code for each line and that we could scan it to find it in ninox.

Thanks

Hi,

I think is not possible directly with ninox. It was a good idea to implement this in the future... I need it also.

A barcode is just a set of characters. I have Ninox create a unique barcode string for each of my products. Then I use the http() function to send the product label to a printer to create the label with a barcode.

 

ninox can use a iPhone/iPad camera to scan barcodes. A string is returned after the barcode is scanned.

There is a REST API to create barcodes at the link below .  You could use the http() function to create the barcode image and import it into Ninox.

I forgot that the http() function wants  a json response, so you can’t directly import the file.

 

From the manual

Return Value

A json object containing either an error or a result property.

 

I ended up doing a workaround to import fillable pdf forms.

I am overcomplicating this.

You can use importFile() to create the barcode. No need to use the http().

importFile(Id, "http://www.barcodes4.me/barcode/c39/"+ barcode +".png", "barcode.png")

To import the barcode as an image in the record instead of an attachement, you can do this:

 

Image := importFile(Id, "http://www.barcodes4.me/barcode/c39/"+ barcode +".png", "barcode.png")
