- Barcodes are images returned by a controller
- Quite easy thanks to the Qweb syntax
<img t-att-src="'/report/barcode/QR/%s' % 'My text in qr code'"/>
- More parameters can be passed as a query string
<img t-att-src="'/report/barcode/?type=%s&value=%s&width=%s&height=%s'%('QR', 'text', 200, 200)"/>

The way you mentioned is fine for a single barcode image to be inserted in the report but what to do if we want to add a dynamic barcode and image for every new order ?
I need to do that for the purpose of scanning a customer order in a tailor shop when he comes to collect his order. When a customer comes, he take a reciept of his order and then when he come back to collect the completed order after a mentioned time, then we should be able to search the order through barcode scanner. For that every order must have a unique barcode.
