Barcode Creator Version History

Version 1.5

released 6/25/16

New Features:
Added the "GS1 DataBar Expanded" symbology. This is the same as DataBar Expanded, but with strict GS1 validation. (DataBar Expanded behaves the same: it will still encode data as GS1 if the input follows GS1 formatting rules, but will also tolerate non-GS1 data, as before.)

Fixes:
Improved QR Code compatibility with scanners that do not use the default configuration from the QR Code 2005 specification (including FileMaker Go).

Upgrading
It is always best to start over.  Delete the old Barcode Creator module folder and copy and paste or import the new one into your file.  Then reconnect your scripts.

Version 1.4.2

Fixes:

"$dataToEncode = " & Quote ( Get ( ScriptParameter ) ) & " ;¶" & "$width = " & GetAsNumber ( $BARCODE_WIDTH ) & " ;¶" & "$height = " & GetAsNumber ( $BARCODE_HEIGHT ) & " ;¶" & "$symbology = " & Quote ( $BARCODE_SYMBOLOGY ) & " ;¶ & "$errorCorrectionCapacity = " & GetAsNumber ( $BARCODE_ERROR_CORRECTION_<wbr>CAPACITY ) & " ;¶" & "$useEscapeSequences = " & GetAsBoolean ( $BARCODE_USE_ESCAPE_SEQUENCES ) & " ;¶"
		
to:
"$dataToEncode = " & Quote ( Get ( ScriptParameter ) ) & " ;¶" & "$width = " & GetAsNumber ( $BARCODE_WIDTH ) & " ;¶" & "$height = " & GetAsNumber ( $BARCODE_HEIGHT ) & " ;¶" & "$symbology = " & Quote ( $BARCODE_SYMBOLOGY ) & " ;¶" & If ( not IsEmpty ( $BARCODE_ERROR_CORRECTION_<wbr>CAPACITY ) ; "$errorCorrectionCapacity = " & GetAsNumber ( $BARCODE_ERROR_CORRECTION_<wbr>CAPACITY ) & " ;¶" ) & "$useEscapeSequences = " & GetAsBoolean ( $BARCODE_USE_ESCAPE_SEQUENCES ) & " ;¶"
