Barcode geneeration and PDF?

P: n/a
I am working on an online promotional deal for a client where I need to be
able to create a barcode that can be redeemed at checkout of one of their
branch stores. Has anyone worked with this before? It seems pretty
straitforward in terms of genrating the barcode dynamically from the numbers
I'll be given, but doesn't a barcode have to print at a particular size and
resolution in order to work? I was thinking of generating the barcode and
dynamically adding it to a pdf file... would that control the output
size/resolution/at a particular dpi?

Can anyone recommend a pdf generator? I'm looking at using the idautomation
..net barcode generator for the barcodes. (It has to be an image, I cant use
fonts because the promotion is internet wide and obviously it's unlikely
they will have the font).

Anyone do this before??

Thanks,

MCD

look at:

http://www.renderbar.com/sample.php

it generates barcodes on the web using pure javascript...which is freely
available on that page. handles all major 2D barcodes along with their
respective ratios, etc.. if you are doing this online, no need to go the pdf
route.

You may consider using a barcode font. Morovia Barcode fonts
(www.morovia.com/font) works at any point size greater than 10. Using
an image generate you need to take care of the resolution issue.

An excellent tool for generating bar codes on web pages is the TAL Bar
Code ActiveX control. For a demo version of it and more information
please visit:
http://www.taltech.com/products/activex_barcodes.html

To see a web page that uses the control to produce bar code images,
please visit:
