A couple of months back a member, RajaniKrishna, initiated a discussion about generation and printing of barcode in VB
. The solution provided involved some barcode fonts including the "code39" font and "code128" font. Well, I've used these fonts and they look quite pretty when printed :-). But a barcode reader won't read them! Heck, what a barcode is good for if it's unreadable by a barcode reader device.
Plz guide me if I'm making some mistake or if these fonts are not intended to be readable by a barcode reader device in the first place.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
