2D Barcode greyed out with Reader 9.0.0

Avatar

27-01-2009

Hi,

I have a strange problem. I'm using a form with a datamatrix barcode - the reader extensions are not set in this form so the barcode is still encrypted. If this form is filled out with Adobe Acrobat 9 the barcode looks fine(encrypted but you can see the barcode), if filled out with Adobe Reader 8.x.x the barcode looks fine(encrypted but you can see the barcode) - but with the same form filled out with Adobe Reader 9.0.0 and the same values the barcode gets greyed out. Even if I just fill in one character.

Can anybody help me out with this?

Thanks in advance

Marc

We are facing the similar problem. We have Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro installed which come with adobe life cycle. We have created the forms with barcode PDF 417.

hi,

first include one masterpage and map it to the first page alone

second master page to rest of the pages

place the code in the form initialize

CustomerApplicationApp.Page0.presence = "hidden";

CustomerApplicationApp.masters.MasterBarcode.presence = "hidden";

were page0 is the first page and the masterbarcode is the respective master page mapped.

place the code in preprint

CustomerApplicationApp.Page0.presence = "visible";

CustomerApplicationApp.masters.MasterBarcode.presence = "visible";

place the code in post print

CustomerApplicationApp.Page0.presence = "hidden";

CustomerApplicationApp.masters.MasterBarcode.presence = "hidden";

Note : rename the nodes according to the code or change the code as per your node.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean.

Can you be a little more specific? Where do I place the barcode, and do I format the barcode as usually.
