Generate Bar Codes in Visual FoxPro

Anyone who needs to generate bar code in Visual FoxPro report needs look no further. Barcodesoft Encoder is a smart and simple solution to generate linear and two-dimensional barcode in your FoxPro application.

There are two solutions for generating bar code in FoxPro: using either FoxPro Link Library (bcs.fll) or barcodesoft.prg.

Using FoxPro Link Library (BCS.FLL):

An FLL library is a DLL with Visual FoxPro API methods calls. It is an extension to Visual FoxPro functionalities.
BCS.FLL is made for encoding linear and 2D barcode for Visual FoxPro. It support most major bar code symbologies, including Code39, Code128, UPC-A, EAN13, Intelligent Mail, PDF417, Data Matrix, Aztec, QR Code, and Code16K.

1. Copy both BCS.FLL and cruflbcs.dll to your FoxPro working folder.

2. Type in the following DOS command to register crUFLbcs.dll
regsvr32 crUFLbcs.dll

SET LIBRARY TO SYS(2004) + "bcs.fll" ADDITIVE

4. Click menu Report===>Insert Control===>Field to insert a field to your VFP report. Use function to encode data into bar code in your FoxPro report as shown below.
BCS_C39( AllTrim(FieldName) )
Tip: Use AllTrim function to remove all leading and trailing spaces.

All linear bar code functions accept only one string parameter.
2D bar code functions sometimes return more than 255 characters. While FoxPro has a field length limit of 255.
Therefore, we use the 2nd parameter to retrieve only a part of returned codewords.
When index is set to 1, it returns the first 250 characters of returned codewords.
When index is set to 2, it returns the second 250 characters of returned codewords.
And so on.
