Projects / TFORMer


TFORMer is a versatile barcode label printing and reporting program. It provides a uniform solution for creating all types of documents like labels, forms, serial letters, lists, and reports. TFORMer is used on workstations, as a server-based output system or as a report generator SDK. Documents are created with the graphical layout editor TFORMer Designer. For printing purposes, data is entered manually or imported from databases or files. Templates for compliance labeling (e.g. AIAG, VDA, DHL, GS1, etc.) reduce design efforts significantly. For software developers, the output functionality is available with TFORMer Runtime. This cross-platform reporting SDK supports all types of barcodes, direct printing, PostScript, HTML, ZPL-II, and image and PDF creation. It integrates perfectly into client and server solutions. APIs are available for .NET, DLL, COM, and Java.

        Release Notes: This release offers enhanced usability, excellent performance, and support for linear, GS1, and 2D barcodes (including Micro QR, Aztec, and HIBC bar codes). A flexible data source concept with direct ODBC or XML import and manual data entry makes variable data printing easy: multiple data sources can be assigned to a single layout. In addition to the COM, .NET, and DLL APIs, a new Java interface (JNI) is available.

          Release Notes: Unicode support was added, allowing typesets like Chinese, Japanese, and Cyrillic.

Syntax highlighting, auto-completion, and call tips were added for expression editing. Embedded fonts in exported PDF files now produce less overhead. New barcodes include Aztec Code, DPD Barcode, Italian Postal Code 2of5, and DAFT Code.
