Barcode Layout Item Properties

Updated by Steven Garand

Select only one item on the page to view and edit item specific properties. Editing item specific properties on Multiple item selections are not allowed.
There is currently no option to specify a static text value for the barcode. The data must come from a link to the database.
If the barcode is linked to a user defined field (order level), a unique descriptive name such as 'Barcode1OnDpd' is required and a custom form with an item linked to the same user defined field is also required to generate the data for the barcode.
The width of the barcode in the bar code item is determined by the bar width and the length of the data displayed. Make sure to set the bar code item wide enough to accommodate the 'Bar Width' and the maximum data length possible.
