Question QR codes in DSF


Maybe this is not a topic for this forum, but I'll give it a shot:

In FusionPro I created a template for a business card with a QR-code on it. Because the QR-code has to be green, I used the text-variant, using this code

var EncodingMode = "String";
var ErrorCorrectionMode = "L";
var PreferredFormat = "0";
var PointSize = "4";
var NoFontTag = false;
var Font = "IDAutomation2D";
var ProcessTilde = false;

var FieldOrRuleToEncode =

    "N:"  +Field("Achternaam") + ";" + Field("Voornaam")  + "\n"+
    "ADR;TYPE=WORK:"+ ";;" + Rule("getStraat") + ";" + Rule("getStraatPostcode") + ";;"
                            + Rule("getStraatPlaats") + ";" + Rule("getStraatLand")+"\n"+
    "ADR;TYPE=OTHER:"+ ";;" + Rule("getPostbus") + ";" + Rule("getPostbusPostcode") + ";;"
                            + Rule("getPostbusPlaats") + ";" + Rule("getPostbusLand")+"\n"+
    "TEL;TYPE=cell:"+ Field("Mobiel")+"\n"+
    "TEL;TYPE=work:"+ Field("tel. Werk")+"\n"+
    "TEL;TYPE=fax:"+ Field("Fax werk")+"\n"+
    "EMAIL;TYPE=WORK:"+ Field("E-mail")+"\n"+
    "URL:"+ Field("URL")+"\n"+
    "ORG:" + Rule("getBusiness")+"\n"+
    "TITLE:"+ Field("Functie")+"\n"+

//return FieldOrRuleToEncode;
var DataToEncode = FieldOrRuleToEncode;
return MakeQRBarcode(DataToEncode, ProcessTilde,
          EncodingMode, ErrorCorrectionMode, PreferredFormat,
          PointSize, NoFontTag, Font);
There is a drop-down menu so the customer can pick his address which is filled out automatically. That's why there are "+rule" in this code.

Offline this works great. But when I create a template, upload it to DSF and generate a business card in DSF, I can't read the QR-code anymore.

Maybe this is related to the character-set?

Default Re: QR codes in DSF

It's hard to say without, at the very least, seeing the data from both the off-line and DSF compositions to compare them. Can you add a line like this before the "return" line?
And then post the log (.msg) file from each composition?

Or at least set that raw data as text, and post the output from each?

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

This is a publicly viewable forum. Please DO NOT post fonts, or other proprietary content, to this forum. Also, please DO NOT post any "live" data with real names, addresses, or any other personal, private, or confidential data.

Please include the specific versions of FusionPro, Acrobat, and your operating system in any problem reports or help requests. I recommend putting this information in your forum signature. Please also check your composition log (.msg) file for relevant error or warning messages.

Please direct any questions specific to EFI's Digital StoreFront (DSF) to EFI support.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
