I want to convert image to binary file/stream in adobe acrobat pro using Adobe Javacipt. I need to embed the uploaded image path as a binary file/stream and then add to 2D Bar code and fetch the image while reading from the bar code.
Tried to convert the uploaded image to binary stream under button click so as to embed to bar code and to fetch the image while reading.But the stream data is coming as alert.
// JScript source code
var pathFile = "E:/Adobe/PDF/Images/home.jpg";
this.importIcon("myIcon", pathFile, 0);
var oIcon = util.iconStreamFromIcon(this.getIcon("myIcon"));
cExec: "console.println('My Button!');",
var pathFile = "E:/Adobe/Alex/Smart PDF latest/Images/home.jpg";
var inputStream = event.target.getDataObjectContents(pathFile);
var k = util.stringFromStream(inputStream);
Not working in above method too

This is not possible.
Any solution to do the same. I tried various ways to covert the Image Field to base64 string in barcode so as to fetch the image from the barcode while reading the data from it. I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro.
Can you explain what you want?
I am uploading a Customer Image on clicking browse button which works via adobe acrobat pro. Afterwards I want to save the Image file to base 64 format and add it to a bar code. From the bar code I would extract the binary data in base 64 and fetch the image from another sector via c# code.
May be someone else understand this.
In short, needs to convert the image to binary file (base 64 string ) and via c# code I would convert this base 64 string to image file. Need is to convert an image file to base 64 in adobe acrobat.

Trying to clarify... you want to import an image, convert it to a base64 string and then set the value of a barcode field so that when the barcode is later scanned, you can interpret the barcode data as an image.
Did I get that right?
Yes this is exactly what I want. i am using Adobe Acrobat pro. I can browse the image and upload the same fine. But unable to convert the image field to base 64 string.
Tried few solutions but none has worked.
Did you resolve this issue ? I'm doing same thing Could you please help me
