Note: if you are going to use the barcode class I mention check out the comments from Zech below. He found a bug
see below for the translation of the barcode
PHP Classes is always my first stop when looking for PHP code, no matter how advanced (or easy to be honest).
I have recently been working on a shopping cart system and implementing barcode generation, as well as allowing a barcode scanner be used as an input device to speed up aspects of order management and data entry.
There are a number of barcode generation classes at PHP Classes. Harish Chauhan’s Barcode Class has been very useful. His class supports a number of barcode standards and allows generation at various sizes. There is a simple form provided to allow generation of barcodes and demonstrate the features of the class.
I will update this when I have finished all the functionality.
The barcode scanner arrives in the morning!
Oh – and the barcode above says “www.createwebsite.info” in the code128 format.
UPDATE: here it is with the font uploaded for the text!
