7. Barcodes and QR Codes

To insert a barcode or QR code in a report open a report in the report designer, right click a location on the report. In the popup menu go to Insert and select one of the following options:

  • BarCode EAN-13...
  • BarCode Bookland...
  • QR Code...
  • BarCode39...
  • BarCodeEAN8...

Once the bar code has been inserted select it, right click and select properties. Now set the bar codes value. If you wish to use a field value such as,

=Fields!FirstName.Value

You must manually edit the XML by select the RDL Text tab and finding the barcodes CustomReportItem. Once found, you need to move it into either the <List> or <Table> </ReportItems> that is in the report.
