How to Create QR-Code in Business Central?

Configure Business Central Container in Docker. 01

In Business Central, the “Create QR Code” feature enables users to generate QR codes directly within the system. QR codes are two-dimensional barcodes that can store various types of data, such as text, URLs, contact information, or product details.

With the “Create QR Code” functionality, users can typically specify the type of data they want to encode into the QR code, such as a web link, contact details, or a specific text message. Business Central then generates the QR code image based on the provided data.

{We Add This Value In Qr Code And We Are Combine Date And Time So for Combining Date And Time We Use A Function And It’s Provide By Microsoft ( CreateDateTime) You Can See In bellow Image.}


Step: 5

As You Can See In first Image, we must have to Add Text Variable CombinedString.
This Variable use For Store Data Which We Need To Show In Qr Code. You Can See In bellow .
CombinedString : Text ;
Use “ + “ For Add Any Other Datils In Qr Code,
CombinedString := ‘seller_name=’ + CompanyInfo.Name + Seperator + ‘Company&tax_number=’ + CompanyInfo.”VAT Registration No.” + Seperator + ‘total=’ + Format(Header.”Amount Including VAT”) + Seperator + ‘tax_amount=’ + Format(TotalTax_Ldec) + Seperator + ‘date=’ + Format(CombinedDateTime);
[Noted: – You Can change This Value as Per Your requirement.]

Step: 6
