Text concatenation:
When a Codabar barcode element is generated by concatenating fields or counters, the following rules apply:

  • Only texts containing digits and the allowed special characters will be considered.
  • Texts must be delimited by one of the four allowed upper-case characters. For instance, to encode 1234+5678, the field should contain the following text: A1234+5678B, where A and B are respectively the start and end delimiter and will not be displayed.

When a value not complying with the above rules is found, the barcode is not displayed.

The human readable text can also be shown above the symbol or hidden according to the setting specified in the Text combo box.
