Is it possible to show value as barcode on screen

Hello Community,

I build Power Apps to show data from D365FO.

When selecting criteria from 'Data table' I like to show selected value as barcode on screen.

Can Power Apps translate numeric value to barcode to screen?

Yes, this can be done. using an Image control, you can use Google's QR API to generate a QR code like this:

"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?chs=150x150&cht=qr&choe=UTF-8&chl=" & yourData

Where yourData is the data you want to add to the QR code.

Here's Google's docs

Hi @Jussi2 ,

Do you want to display a number value as a barcode within your canvas screen?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I afraid that there is no direct way to achieve your needs in PowerApps. As an alternative solution, I agree with @EricLott 's thought almost.

 

Please consider add a Image control in your app, set the Image property to following:

"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=320x320&chl=" & 450

On your side, you should type:

"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=320x320&chl=" & DataTable1.Selected.NumberColumn

Thanks for your replies,

need is show bar code on tablet what user can read by scanner.

I added screenshot to demonstrate stripped need. 

Bar codes are fonts. I was thinking is it possible translate numeric value to bar code font by selecting bar code font from list.

(Value '00005' should be bar code).

Hi @Jussi2 ,

If you want to translate numeric value to bar code font by selecting bar code font from list, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

As an alternative solution, please add a Image control along side the Data Table, set the Image property to following:

"https://chart.googleapis.com/chart?cht=qr&chs=320x320&chl=" & DataTable.Selected.'Purchase order'
