Implementation request

Post by Ceprotec »

What is the probability that in the near future we will have a barcode and qrcode value viewer (similar to TRVShape)?

Fortunately, there is a free open source barcode generation library for Delphi, https://github.com/landrix/Zint-Barcode ... for-Delphi
With it, it's simple to implement displaying values as barcodes, by implementation of new field types.

I created the first version, only QRCode, with minimum parameters.

By the way, I plan to add a new property for images in TRichView - "smooth scaling", to allow turning it off for images like barcodes or pixel art.
In the example above, QR codes are generated as metafiles, so this option will have no effect, But for codes generated as raster images (such as bitmaps of PNG), it will be useful.
