    Hello guys ,

    I am using a barcode font (IDAutomation HC39) in my crystal report, where I should include the font on server, so after publishing the user dont need to have the font installed on their pc to view the barcode.

    Thanks in adavance .

    barcode fonts on ASP.NET reporting tools like Crystal Reports have such limitation i.e. you must install the font on each client machine to get it working. refer to font licensing before proceeding. Instead of using the font directly in your report, you should create an image using such font and render the barcode image using a BLOBField. In this way you can forget the idea of thinking is the client has or not the barcode font installed. Here is an article of how to use images instead of fonts. Do the same with yours there.
