Hello,
I need to create a PHP script that reads some of the fields of an RSForn and creates a QR code with them. I've been doing a little bit of research and I've found a PHP library that may suite my needs: http://phpqrcode.sourceforge.net/. Now the question is how do I add this library to my current Joomla installation? Then, forms created with RSForms have a place to enter PHP scripts to be executed when processing forms. So I guess this is my game area. Which is the PHP code to get the value of a given field, let's say, Username? I'll keep researching on the subject, but any suggestion or hint will be highly valued.
Cheers!

Dani

Hello, its me again. I have some problems making it work. I have copied the whole libraryu to /public_html/libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php. Then, just as a quick set up, I have copied an example (http://phpqrcode.sourceforge.net/examples/index.php?example=025). This is the code:

{source}
<?php
include('../libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php/'); 
include('config.php'); 

// how to build raw content - QRCode with simple Business Card (VCard) 

$tempDir = EXAMPLE_TMP_SERVERPATH; 

// here our data 
$name = 'John Doe'; 
$phone = '(049)012-345-678'; 

// we building raw data 
$codeContents = 'BEGIN:VCARD'."\n"; 
$codeContents .= 'FN:'.$name."\n"; 
$codeContents .= 'TEL;WORK;VOICE:'.$phone."\n"; 
$codeContents .= 'END:VCARD'; 

// generating 
QRcode::png($codeContents, $tempDir.'025.png', QR_ECLEVEL_L, 3); 

// displaying 
echo '<img src="'.EXAMPLE_TMP_URLRELPATH.'025.png" />';

?>
{/source}

I am using sourcerer so that I can run code directly into the HTML module. However, I get this error:

Warning: include(../libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 7 Warning: include(../libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 7 Warning: include(): Failed opening '../libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 7 Warning: include(config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 8 Warning: include(config.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 8 Warning: include(): Failed opening 'config.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 8 Fatal error: Class 'QRcode' not found in /home/u909072349/public_html/plugins/system/sourcerer/helper.php(632) : runtime-created function on line 25

Any idea on what's going on? Maybe the gallery is not properly installed?
Thanks!

Thanks diafol. This is the file qrlib.php

    $QR_BASEDIR = dirname(__FILE__).DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR;

    // Required libs

    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrconst.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrconfig.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrtools.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrspec.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrimage.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrinput.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrbitstream.php";

    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrrscode.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrmask.php";
    include $QR_BASEDIR."qrencode.php";

All the libreries included here are in the /public_html/libraries/phpqrcode directory, so I guess this is not the error. Also, the config.php file is on the root (public_html), so this shouldnt' be a problem. Can you provide further help?
Thanks again,

Dani

That seems to be an issue:

if config.php is in root (public_html), then the reference to:

include('../libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php/'); 

is wrong, try...

include('libraries/mylib/phpqrcode/qrlib.php/'); 

However, I don't understand how you're getting errors for the other files if they're referenced in the include file and that does not exist at the location stated. Strange.
