Default 2D barcode with variable page count

I am needing to use a 2D barcode. My problem is that in the first line of code the “02” I need to be the page count with a zero before it. This page count is variable per record. Any idea how to make that happen. I tried to put the page count rule in there, but it didn’t seem to work.

var dataforbarcode = “02" + Field('SEQUENCE');
var dmbarcodeobj = new DataMatrixBarcode;
dmbarcodeobj.encodingmode = "C40";
dmbarcodeobj.pointSize = 4;
return dmbarcodeobj.Make(dataforbarcode);

Default Re: 2D barcode with variable page count

Check the "Re-evaluate this rule for every text flow" box in the Rule Editor, and change the first line to this:
Code:
var dataforbarcode = FormatNumber("00", FusionPro.Composition.totalPages);

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
