Barcode and RFID Wedge / Software Wedge: TWedge V2.1

As of today TEC-IT released a new version of the data acquisition software TWedge.

TWedge is a smart data collection tool which is in use as barcode wedge, software wedge, keyboard wedge, serial wedge, scale wedge, etc. Just choose the name you prefer :-).
V2.1 introduces:
  • User Input Functionality: The new function 'InputBox' allows a user to enter data in real-time (validation is optional).
  • Clipboard Access Functions: The clipboard functions "CopyToClipboard" and "GetFromClipboard" were introduced. These functions are useful for larger amounts of data, where a simulation of keystrokes is not feasible or too slow.
  • Multiple Control Strings: Now it is possible to send a combination of key constants and modifier keys using the '+' character' (e.g.: "{CTRL+f}" or "{CTRL+SHIFT+h}"). Multiple modifier keys can be now processed through multiple control string.
  • Improved User Interface (GUI): Toolbar and application icons were redesigned.
Product descriptions and downloads are available here: Software Wedge TWedge V2.1.

Barcode Maker Software: Barcode Studio V9.2

Barcode Studio V9.2 is available to the public!

As mentioned in a previous blog-entry this release fixes a major problem with missing human readable texts when exporting barcodes as image on Mac OS X and Linux.

In addition a minor DataMatrix encoding bug was fixed. The handling of quiet zones was also corrected.

More information and downloads are available here: Barcode Maker Software: Barcode Studio.

Enjoy - and feedback is more than welcome!

Useful Test Data Generator

A colleague of mine just stumbled over a very useful generator for test data. He used it for preparing some test cases for our label printing and reporting software TFORMer. Below are 2 screenshots - the first one shows how to adjust the general characterics of the test data to be generated:

The second one shows the results:

Hope this tool is also helpful for you!

Free Music Download - JAMENDO

Warning! Non barcode-related post ;-)

Are you listening music while developing software? If yes - the same is true for some members of TEC-IT. A few days ago I read about a free music portal named Jamendo. Because I think it is worth trying it here is some advertisement:

Jamendo is a community of free, legal and unlimited music published under Creative Commons licenses. Share your music, download your favorite artists!

My favorites (mostly progressive and trance) until now: Opener of the Ways (by Solaris), Psychonaut (by Solaris), Encre (by Silence), Wood (by Greg Beaumont), Pretium Doloris (by A.n.K.h).

Highlight: You can listen to music without registration.

There is also a little draw-back: Music download is free but I was unable to manage downloads on Windows Vista (not sure if it depends on Vista or something else). However - MP3 download worked with FF on Ubuntu. Hopefully the Jamendo team will fix this issue shortly.
