Looking at how InDesign is doing it, i see that it creates an eps in a temporary folder and places it inside the rectangle. The name of the file starts with QR Code followed by something like a time stamp. On MAC a sample path that i got is given belowMacintosh HD:private:var:folders:tr:84vq58qs1yz85_cr9rq2l9kc0000gn:T:QR Code3039759965979So you could iterate all the graphics in the document, if any of them is an eps check its path and name according to the pattern.-Manan
