    I love this API, but I want to use a barcode field on the page.  How can I update the barcode field?

    There's no such thing as a "barcode field" in PDF, so i can't tell you how to "update".

    Can you clarify  your problem? If you want to create a visible barcode, you have different options, e.g.

    - Add a barcode on  the page content stream (plain drawing or using an image)
    - Add an ordinary text field with a barcode font
    - Add an annotation where the content stream draws a barcode (plain drawing or using an image)

    You can use https://github.com/zxing/zxing together with jpod to create barcodes.

    This sounds good. Feel free to donate a snippet that we will include in the examples.
