I'm trying to create a bar code generator like the one at http://qr.insready.com/node/add/vcard . This generator is created with Drupal 7 & the Barcode contributed module (by the module's creator).
What I need my application to do is accept a number of items of user data input into a form, concatenate the field entries using tokens into the barcode input field, then generate a bar code on form submit as well as save the data into a database.
This is what I've accomplished so far. I have created a custom multi-part form module following the example in the Examples module, & got it to input data into the database. (I don't know if this will be exposed to Views, since I'm learning this as I go; it's a table I created within Drupal's database specifically to store the data.) Independently, I have created a custom content type with a barcode field that gets tokens from other fields in the form, & successfully creates a bar code encoding the data from the fields in concatenated form.
I would appreciate some pointers on getting this working together. What I need is a way of getting the barcode field into my custom form. Then it can pull data out of the other fields using tokens just as with the custom content type I created.
I can post code snippets if they are needed.
