Error with €-character in pdf417 bar code

Avatar

Level 1

Hey,

we have a problem with the Euro-Sign (€) in the bar code type pdf417. The encoding is set to  "ISO-8859-15", but after creating the barcode and scan this, instead of the €-character the ?-character appears. Is this a bug in the encoding-routine? Or have we to set some special parameters?

Can anybody help?

Thanks!

Assuming you are using the 2D PDF417 barcode, we do not support that character encoding. But, if you set the encoding to UTF-8, you should be able to scan the Euro symbol, assuming you scanner can read it.

We support the following encodings:

UTF-8

UTF-16

UCS-2

ISO-8859-1

ISO-8859-2

ISO-8859-7

Shift_JIS

KSC_5601

GB_2312

Big-Five
