    Barcode fixed width regardless of amount of data

    Onix Rodriguez

      Greetings

       

      I'm working as label developer for the company I work. We use Bottomline Transform for our needs and I can make the labels graphically then use a BMP to ZPL converter to make it into ZPL code. However I'm trying another aproach and it's to make the label fully into ZPL code directly. The problem I have is that when I use ZPL barcode commands I can't find a way to make the barcode stick to a fixed width regardless of the amount of data.

       

      The fowllowing code produce the graphic below:

      Ignore the B:Arial.FNT that was for testing purposes.

       

      ^XA^MMT^PW600^LL0150^LS0

      ^FO20,52^AQB,25,15,^FDJOB^FS

      ^FO175,15^A@N,25,15,B:Arial.FNT^FDLLLLLL^FS

      ^FO293,15^A@N,25,15,BArial.FNT^FD003^FS

      ^FO530,110^A@N,15,10,B:Arial.FNT^FD555^FS^BY2,2,60^FT50,104,^BCN,,N,N,N,N^FD>:KKKKKKKKKKK^FS

      ^FO200,110^A@N,25,15,B:Arial.FNT^FDKKKKKKKKKKK^FS^BY60,60^FT516,105^BXN,6,200,0,0,1,~^FH\^FD888555^FS

      ^PQ1,0,1,Y^XZ

      I want to make the barcode reach the red line on the 2nd graphic and stay the same even if the amount of data for the barcode changes. If I increase the ^BY# from 2 to 3 it will overlap with the 2d matrix. Is there any way to make the barcode adjust automatically to a fixed size regarless of the amount of data?
