IE-11- Barcode font- not viewable in preview - worked fine with IE9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a website that allows users to preview and print cover sheet that has barcode font.

     <form method="post" action="SearchPage.aspx?Parameter1=6&amp;BarcodeFontName_DocumentID=Free+3+of+9+Extended&amp;BarcodeFontFileName_DocumentID=FRE3OF9X.TTF&amp;BarcodeFontSize_DocumentID=60&amp;BarcodeFontHasTextBuiltIn_DocumentID=False" id="form1">

    Any suggestions?

    On IE9,

    On IE 11 ( Of  course, after installing fonts)

  • Hi,

    f12>DOM explorer.... use the find tool to select and highlight the element that is using that font-face. The cascaded style rules are displayed on the rhs of the DT.

    f12>Console tab, any blocked content is listed in the console.

    f12>Emulation tab, what documentMode does your page/site use? Have you validated and corrected your markup errors? (note: the font tag is depreciated... replace with span elements)

    File>Properties... to determine which IE security zone your site maps to (expected internet)

    Tools>Internet Options>General tab, 'Accessibility' button... there are settings for "Use font styles specified on web pages"..
