Display a barcode on an application (FDA, not a BIP report)

Has anyone ever been able to display a barcode on a form? Not using an image, but actually using a text control (or text block) and formatting it as a barcode for display on the app.

Would love to hear what has been done

i have a little external server that i can pass a string to and it returns a barcode img - i've used this along with cafeone to get a barcode on the screen that you can scan.

like

serverurl/?s=12345678&l=250&w=50&e=128&t=true

gives me a 250x50 code128 barcode of 12345678 with the text displayed under the url

a barcode is more than just text in a barcode font. it's actually an encoded string that is then barcoded. it's weird.

Hey - just wanted to circle back to this. Couldn't be happier with how that web service works. Thanks for sending that along. I had other priorities that crept in front of this project but just started on it again - works great.
