    Create a barcode based on a number field.

    Asked by MBWHS on October 04, 2016 at 08:26 PM



    I need to be able to generate a barcode of the field 'infant UR number' to be printed on the form.  Can you please let me know how I can do this, I will need to do this for all my forms and it needs to be a barcode and not a QR code.

    Unfortunately that is currently not possible to achieve on Jotform. We do not have a widget that will let you generate a barcode based on a numerical field. The only widget we have that is close to your specification is the Dynamic QR Code widget or QR Code widget, although I understand that this is not what you are looking for.

    With that in mind, I will send a feature request on your behalf for a widget that can let you generate a barcode based on a field. However, please note that we cannot assure you if or when this feature will be implemented, as it still depends on the popularity of the feature request among our users. If we do have any news on this request, we shall let you know on this thread. Thank you.
