XML to PDF417

Post by nateneedshelp » Thu Aug 29, 2019 3:30 am

Hey all,

I have some XML code that I would like to be converted and stored in a PDF417 image. What do I need to do to make this happen?

Thanks,

Radu

Hi,

There are online barcode generator tools, maybe you can search for an open source one.
Otherwise you probably need to create an XSLT stylesheet which is applied over the XML document and generated an XSL-FO document containing an embedded SVG image with the barcodes. After this on the XSL-FO document you need to apply an FO processor which will create a PDF. Something like this tool does:
