Yes, there is a MakePDF417Barcode function, which you can call like so:

return MakePDF417Barcode(Field("barcode data"));

There are additional optional parameters to control various aspects of the barcode.


You can also use the PDF417Barcode object, and optionally set its various properties:

var barcode = new PDF417Barcode;
barcode.pointSize = 12;
return barcode.Make(Field("barcode data"));

Either way, the font is automatically set to the IDAutomationPDF417n3 font, which is installed with FusionPro.

When I make a rule with either code, I get the same result. I've attached 2 screenshots. One of the preview selector to show the codes number and the other to show what previews shows me. What am I doing wrong?

That looks like a problem with the font not appearing correctly in Preview. Try a full composition and view the PDF; that should look correct.


In FusionPro 11, there's an "Embed Fonts For Preview" box you can check on the Preferences dialog which usually makes this work in Preview. In FusionPro 10, you'll have to manually edit the file "/Library/Preferences/PTI/FusionPro/FusionPro Preferences" and add a line "EmbedFontsForPreview=true" under [settings].
