DrawBarcode

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".

Syntax

Delphi

function TDebenuPDFLibrary1511.DrawBarcode(Left, Top, Width, Height: Double; 
  Text: WideString; Barcode, Options: Integer): Integer;

ActiveX

Function DebenuPDFLibrary1511.PDFLibrary::DrawBarcode(Left As Double, Top As Double,
  Width As Double, Height As Double, Text As String, Barcode As Long,
  Options As Long) As Long

DLL

int DPLDrawBarcode(int InstanceID, double Left, double Top, double Width,
  double Height, wchar_t * Text, int Barcode, int Options)

Parameters

Left Horizontal co-ordinate of left edge of the barcode
Top Vertical co-ordinate of top edge of the barcode
Width Width of the barcode
Height Height of the barcode
Text The barcode data.
For UPC the string must be 13 digits long with a leading zero.
The barcode can be rotated by appending the following to the barcode data string:
/RC = Rotate clockwise
/RA = Rotate anti-clockwise
/RU = Rotate 180 degrees
Barcode 1 = Code39 (or Code 3 of 9)
2 = EAN-13 or UPC
3 = Code128
4 = PostNet
5 = Interleaved 2 of 5
Options Code39:
0 = Default drawing
EAN-13 or UPC:
0 = Only draw the barcode
1 = Extend the guard bars
2 = Draw the human-readable numbers
3 = Draw the human-readable numbers, with right spacer
4 = Draw as UPC (leading zero is not shown)
Code128:
0 = Default drawing
PostNet:
0 = Default drawing
Interleaved 2 of 5:
0 = Do not add a checksum, no bearer bars
1 = Add a checksum character, no bearer bars
2 = Do not add a checksum, draw bearer bars
3 = Add a checksum character, draw bearer bars
To apply 10% bar width reduction to the barcode, increase the value of the Options parameter by 10
