Vector graphics, Barcodes

Description

Draws a barcode on the selected page.

For Code128, the barcode is a combination of the "B" and "C" character sets resulting in the most compact representation.

GS1-128 barcodes (also known as EAN-128) can be drawn by setting the Barcode parameter to 3 (Code128) and using the string "[FNC1]" in the appropriate place. For example:

"[FNC1]21ABC123[FNC1]2013"

The previous example indicates a serial number (AI 21) of "ABC123" and a product variant (AI 20) of "13".

Availability
