    This workaround might be of help.

    Simply add this image code on your form thank you page.

    <img src="https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&chl={id}&choe=UTF-8" alt="Your unique QR code" width="150" height="150" />

    Where {id} is the submissions ID by default. You can change {id} with any field tag e.g. if you want to use unique ID. This creates a barcode image on your thank you page after submitting the form.

    Here's a visual guide:

    Hope this helps!

    For more additional options, please refer to these (3rd party) barcode documentation:

    According to barcodes4me documentation, the correct parameter is IsTextDrawn=1. Therefore, the codes should be:

    <img src=" http://www.barcodes4.me/barcode/c128b/{id}.gif ?IsTextDrawn=1"/>

    alt property is optional.

    I created a HTML form wich is sending the data to a MYSQL/PHPmyAdmin page through a PHP section. That works fine. Every record in the DB gets a unique field (reparationID).

    Based on the ReparationID I want to create a barcode and print it on a management page. Is this possible in PHP? I have created a big button that must do the action, but i don't know how yet
