Barcode ActiveX Plug-in

“Drag & Drop” ActiveX Controls

IDAutomation’s ActiveX Controls are easy to use “drag and drop” plug-ins for Microsoft® Access, Excel, Word, and other MS Office applications. The ActiveX Controls support several linear and two dimensional barcode symbologies including Code 39, Code 128, Interleaved 2 of 5, LOGMARS, Extended Code 39, GS1-128, Codabar, UPC-A, UPC-E, MSI, EAN-8, EAN-13, USPS OneCode, POSTNET, PDF417, Data Matrix and others.

Using the control is a simple 3-step process as described below:

STEP 1 – INSTALL THE PLUG-IN

The ActiveX Control plug-in must be installed in Windows® before applications will be able to “see” it. IDAutomation has provided an installation utility that will install the control on a local PC. The ActiveX Control may be ordered or a demo downloaded from IDAutomation.

STEP 2 -INSERT THE CONTROL IN AN APPLICATION

After the plug-in has been installed on a local PC, the control may be used in any application that supports ActiveX Controls. For applications that are not listed here, search the application’s help file for information on how to use ActiveX Controls. Below are a few examples of implementing IDAutomation’s controls in Microsoft® Word, Excel, and Access.

Microsoft Access Installation
