Scripting Barcodes into the Form

For help opening the FormDocs Script Editor, see FormDocs Automation Basic Editor Scripting Samples.
Sample code for using RJS Barcode ActiveX:
'Sample Barcode VB Script Code (updated 8/23/05)
Dim bc As Object
Dim bcfile As String
Dim rtn As Long

'Create barcode object
Set bc = CreateObject("RJSBarcode.CRJSBarcode")

'Make directory if not found
rtn = bc.MakeDirectory("c:\barcodes")

'Use one example from the three below.  Comment out the others.

' 1.
'Try to gen barcode with default size and no barcode text
bcfile = bc.GenBarcode("123345">, 13, "c:\barcodes",0,0,0,0)

'     - or -

' 2.
'Try to gen barcode with new size and barcode text at 5 points.
bcfile = bc.GenBarcode("123345">, 13, "c:\barcodes",10,5,1,5)

'     - or -

' 3.
'Try to gen barcode using the value in a field on the form.
'For this example, we will call the field "'''YOUR_FIELD'''".
'Replace this with a field that exists on your form.
bcfile = bc.GenBarcode(ThisForm.Fields("YOUR_FIELD").value, 13, "c:\barcodes",10,5,1,5)

'If no file name is returned, an error occurred generating barcode.
'If a file name is returned, bcfile can be moved into a FormDocs field.
'NOTE: IF you use the field name below, you MUST have a field
'named "BARCODE_FIELD" that is set to a 'Picture' Format.

If bcfile = "" Then
MsgBox "No barcode"
ThisForm.Fields("BARCODE_FIELD").value = bcfile
End If

'Delete work file
rtn = bc.DeleteFile(bcfile)

'Release barcode object
Set bc = Nothing
