Hi Experts,

we are trying to generate qrcode using image url (google api) but since last week it didnt work anymore.

we've tried using others api but still couldnt make it work, also we tried using qrcode fonts (free version) but didnt showed proper qrcode. Is there any other alternatives without using qrcode fonts

One alternative is a Crystal Reports User Function Library (UFL) that generated the QR Code as an image rather than as a font.
A dummy image's Graphic Location expression can then replace the image with the dynamically generated QR Code image.  
This is the approach used in my CUT Light UFL, and it removed the dependency on fonts or internet connectivity.

Dear Expert, Where can we find that UFL is it available in crystal report? do we have to install it first or is it already there? Thank You

and now in english ...

yes... I think so...
For example with Zint - the best barcode generator ever... over 50 types.
And QR too...
But it needs an integration in Crystal, like business2report ufl (AddOn DLL for Crystal)
Zint creates a PNG file - very fast.
And Crystal takes it in real time

Hallo Daniel,

ja... Ich denke schon...
Zum Beispiel mit zint - dem besten Barcode-Generator aller Zeiten ... mehr als 50 Typen.
Und auch qr ...
Aber es braucht eine Integration in Crystal, wie business2report ufl (AddOn dll for Crystal)
Zint erzeugt eine png-Datei - sehr schnell.
Und Crystal nimmt es in Echtzeit

Please share the Google API name and URL you are using.  Also what version of Crystal Reports (2016, 2020, etc or the version reported in Help | About..

thank you

Perhaps you need an API key from Google.  You may have exceeded the number of times you can generate the QR Code.

QR Code ufl's are not included

But you can find a lot of third party providers on the web
