Okay Great! I am going to test it.

The first, smallest thing you should change is to standardize the number of digits replacing a letter.
For you A = 1, D = 4, L = 12 etc... it is not correct because you will never recognize if 11 is AA or K. It should be: A = 01, D = 04, L = 12. Always two digits.

Besides, someone has already thought of encoding characters into digital form and it is called ascii. You can apply a similar principle to ascii, or simply use ascii. So the solution is to encode not only letters, but also numbers, and then decode everything in turn.

This is the really great idea for me to convert all codes to ASCII as they can convert such a amazing and very easy and useful idea ever tried. I cannot express my feelings i am feeling right now.

Let me know how to convert Text to ASCII and ASCII to Text in the application (provide any component or extension).

You have a choice of Decimal or Hex, which do you prefer ?

``````CHAR
0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,J,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z

DEC
30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,38,39,65,66,67,68,69,70,71,72,73,74,75,76,77,78,79,80,81,82,83,84,85,86,87,88,89,90

HEX
48,49,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,4A,4B,4C,4D,4E,4F,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,58,59,5A

You said no letters in the barcode, so I guess Decimal ?

Yes, I preferred decimals.

Can barcodes can be ready with letters also?

Something like this:

decodeBarcode2.aia (5.0 KB)

Which maker supports that and is that widely scannable?

Why not try it with what you have already ?

Yeah, I am just asking , to explore in the deep sea of it.

Be aware that lower case letters would throw you into three digit decimal values.
