    Barcode fixed width regardless of amount of data

    Onix Rodriguez



      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.









      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?
