When users click the icon, a dialog box will be displayed as Figure shows.
Sketch: The sketch map is that the current barcode will look like.
Barcode Information: The barcode explanation shows some information about the current barcode’s format, and if users are not very clear with the format, it is recommended to read the tip first to get to know what types of characters is valid.
Text: This item refers to the text to be made into barcode. And if the characters users types in the Text space is valid, there will be a cross selected in Valid which shows the current characters are valid for being made into a barcode.
Show Text: Whether to show a corresponding text under the barcode.
Hatch: The text is hatched as the setting of hatch in the show text if the hatch is selected; otherwise the hatching is the same as barcode.
Font: The font of the current characters to be displayed.
Width: the width of the characters.
Height: the height of the characters.
Text Offset X: When selected and set up, the text displayed under the barcode will be moved towards either the positive or the negative directions of X axis.
Text Offset Y: When selected and set up, the text displayed under the barcode will be moved towards either the positive or the negative directions of Y axis.
Text Space: the space between characters.
Quiet: Refer to the size of the barcode’s blank area, when let the barcode “Reverse” valid.
This kind of barcode consists of r bar and e space one by one. The barcode information is carried by different width and position of the s bars and space , and the information volume they carry is decided by the width and the precision. Wider the barcode is, more the s bars and the e space included, and more information carried. This kind of barcode technology can store information towards only Unidirection through permutation and combination of the s bars and the space , and so it is called one-dimensional barcode.
Figure shows a feature of parameter setting when a one-dimensional barcode is chosen.
CheckNum: This refers to whether the current barcode needs verify code. Users can freely choose which barcode they would like to add verify code on, and users have the decision whether to use the verify code or not.
Reverse: This refers to whether to reverse the parts which should be marked into the unexpected parts of an object. This function is used in some materials which appear light color after the marking.
Bar Height: the height of the barcode.
Narrowest Width: This refers to the width of unit bar. Commonly a one-dimensional barcode consists of s bars with four types of width and space with four types of width, 1 \ 2 \ 3 \ 4. The narrowest bar’s width indicates the width is 1 unit.
Interchar space: It is prescribed that some barcodes have distance between characters. (e.g. Code 39)
Use Inter Hatch Line: If the facula diameter of laser bean is big, there will be a half facula over boundaries after common hatch, then the code gun can not distinguish because actual marking width is bigger than design width. So we specially design this hatch. The hatch line is bow line and don’t have contour.
Laser Bean Diameter: The size of laser facula.
Hatch Line Distance: The space between two hatch lines.
Bar: setting the width of one bar.
Space: setting the width of the space.
Quiet: Refer to the size of the barcode’s blank area, when let the barcode “Reverse” valid. The actual size of the blank area is the multiple of the unit bar.
