Feature details

This release wave adds fonts to generate one-dimensional barcodes in Business Central production and sandbox environments. This means that any custom layouts using the fonts will work.

We have licensed the font packages provided by IDAutomation Inc.

We have also added a new AL module to make it easy for developers to encode strings in the different barcode symbologies that the fonts support.

You can start testing the fonts now. See the following articles for more information about font types and sizes:

For testing purposes, you can download demo versions of the fonts here:

Install the demo versions of the fonts in your developer environments so that you can design custom reports.

  • For a Windows environment, install the fonts.
  • For a sandbox Docker environment, download and then install the demo fonts locally. Then use the Add-FontsToNavContainer PowerShell cmdlet to add fonts to the container.
