I was assigned with the following task:
The user can download a PDF form from our website. When he fills out a certain field, a barcode with the fields value, as well as others, appears.
Now my question is, how could I achieve this?
I've tried out Adobe Acrobat DC pro and it would work fine. However, this only works with Adobe Acrobat DC pro and I higly doubt all our customers have this program. Most will use the normal Adobe reader in which the barcode creation doesn't work (just a grey field).
I've asked in the Adobe forum already and was told it would work with Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extension (LiveCycle ES, I suppose).
Does anyone have any experience with this? Are there alternatives which would do the job?
Thanks in advance for your help!
