HTMLConverterX with barcode font
March 31, 2012 08:23AM

I have fonts installed on my server from [] and I am having troubles figuring out how to get HTMLConverterX to embed the font into the destination PDF.

Is there a way to convert the HTML to PDF? I am open to options available from your other server-side products.

Thank you.

barcode.html file is (different div tags for different styles, just trying to figure out what will work):

<title>Barcode Font Test</title>
<style type="text/css" >
@font-face {font-family: bbff;
src: url("[servername]winking smiley;}
.barcode { font-family: "Free 3 of 9 Regular", verdana, calibri; font-size: 36pt; }
.barcodeX { font-family: "Free 3 of 9 Extended Regular", verdana, calibri; font-size: 36pt; }
.bbff1 { font-family:bbff; }
barcode: <div class="barcode">*574656*</div><br>
barcodeX: <div class="barcodeX">*574656*</div><br>
plain: <div >*574656*</div><br>
bbff1: <div class="bbff1">*574656*</div><br>

Hi Mary,

Thank you for your response. It works great from a command prompt. Thank you!!!

Just for testing, I ran it as a vbscript and I got the error message below:

dim HC
set HC = CreateObject("HTMLConverter.HTMLConverterX"winking smiley
HC.Convert "c:\temp\barcode.html", "c:\temp\barcode.pdf", "-c pdf -po Portrait -DEC PA -ps Letter"
set HC = nothing

The error message refers to the HC.Convert line: C:\TEMP\barcode.vbs(3, 1) (null): Catastrophic failure
