PDF label with barcode

CoMedia
Hi list,

Lasso 8.6 (still…)
 
I have been using one of Jolle Carlestam’s solutions for years, and now would like to make a small extension. It’s about the creation of labels through the use of PDF, I think Jolle presented this at the Lasso Summit in Chicago, back in 2008 — or maybe even earlier.

I now would like to add a small EAN13 barcode on top of each label, representing an 12 digit code (plus checksum). I managed to get all the barcodes printed piled in the upper left corner of the PDF, but not at the right place.

Did anyone do this before or maybe Jolle can chime in? Thanks!

CoMedia,
Alfred Konijnenbelt

Is the barcode placement within the loop, such that you adjust
its -top and -left parameters accordingly?

RE: PDF label with barcode

Rick Draper-2
In reply to this post by CoMedia
Hi Alfred,

As Steve said, you need to check what coordinates you are applying to the
barcode placement. If the rest of your label content is landing in the right
places, it sounds like you are not incrementing the values to move the x/y
position of the barcode.

If you are having trouble with knowing what is happening, you could
substitute some of your text (that is being validly placed) with the
coordinates for barcode placement (or log them to the console).

Very best regards,

Rick
