Encode leading zeros in barcode


Level 3

Hi Everyone!

I am having trouble with encoding leading zeros into a barcode. Is there a javascript to force a leading zero to be generated into a 2D barcode in LiveCycle?

Which barcode are you using? I was able to leave the leading zeroes in an EAN8 barcode just by supplying the rawvalue as a text string.

this.rawValue = "00001234";

I'm using PDF417. The barcode gets generated by a button. Would the code go on the button or on the field itself?

Thanks for your help!

I was using the calculate event for that previous example, but the PDF417 BarCode doesn't allow that to be modified. So, I would suggest a button or other valid event.

A quick test to verify it's working.


if (PDF417BarCode1.rawValue == "0000001234") PDF417BarCode1.rawValue = "9876543210";

else PDF417BarCode1.rawValue = "0000001234";
