[ANN] CNS Barcode 2.1 Released -- New Barcode Formats, new File Functions, and a multitude of CNS Core updates

Jake Traynham

Fort Worth, TX, February 22, 2017 -- CNS Plug-ins presents a new version
of CNS Barcode which includes five new barcode formats that can be
generated and fifteen new or updated file functions. The plug-in also
includes a multitude of CNS Core updates like FileMaker(R) 15 support
and better thread safety, especially under FileMaker Server. CNS Barcode
version 2.1 is available immediately at
https://www.cnsplug-ins.com/Plug-ins/CNS_Barcode for both Mac OS(R) X
and Windows(R).


CNS Barcode for FileMaker Pro is a plug-in that brings the power of
barcodes to your FileMaker Solution. Like its sibling product, CNS
Barcode for iOS, this plug-in can both scan and generate barcodes. CNS
Barcode can scan JPEG or PNG images containing barcodes or it can use an
attached webcam to scan any barcodes held up to the camera. Barcode
formats you can scan include Codabar, Code 3 of 9 (Code 39), Code 3 of 9
Ext. (Code 39+), Code 93, Code 128, DataBar-14, DataBar-14 Stacked, EAN
2, EAN 5, EAN 8, EAN 13, EAN 14, EAN 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, ISBN, QR
Code, UPC A, and UPC E. Barcode formats you can generate include all the
formats you can scan plus Data Matrix, HIBC Data Matrix, USPS OneCode,
PDF417, and PostNET.

Whether you already have products with barcodes or if you want to start
using barcodes to track your assets, CNS Barcode is easy to set up and
use. If you need to create barcodes, the CNSBC_Generate function will
take any data you have in your database and create a PNG, EPS, or SVG
image of the barcode format of your choosing. You can then print out and
affix the barcodes to the objects you need to track. When you need to
scan one of your barcodes, the CNSBC_ScanWindow function will bring up a
video preview of your webcam for you to see what you are scanning. When
the plug-in recognizes the barcode, it will use one of three actions
that you define. It can close the scanning window and return the barcode
data to the script that opened the window; it can call a script in your
database and pass it the barcode data; or it can set a field in your
database with the barcode data. Unlike the first action, the script
calling and field setting actions leave the scanning window open for you
to scan more barcodes.

Download CNS Barcode today and see how easy it is to add barcodes to
your FileMaker Solution!
