Barcode density and X dimension mm to mils conversion

We purchased IDAutomation Native Generation Access package for production barcodes, recently our customer requires the specification of the barcode like "Barcode density shall not be greater than 6.9 CPI and the X dimension (narrowest width of vertical bar or space) shall not be less than .25 millimeters. ", we use IDAutomation_NatG_C39(TextControlName, ReportControlName, 8, N_Dimension, IncludeCheckDigit, 600, Orientation) for the barcode printing, could you provide me the barcode specification for density and X dimension with C39 function?

Operating System: Windows 10

In the Access Generator Tutorial refer to step 15 to modify the optional parameters. Set the DPI to the lowest of any printer or output device and set the X Dimension in MILS. MILS is 1/1000 of an inch so to convert from .25 millimeters use the formula MM * 39.37 = MILS. Therefore set your MILS to 10 and the DPI to 600 for example. The CPI is a more complex formula and the best way to determine that is to print the barcode and then measure it, or preview it with the ruler enabled.
