DataMatrix Native 2D Barcode is hidden by image


I have tried "Bring to Front", no change it is not displayed.
If i place into empty area on the report then the code is shown properly.
I need the code to be displayed over an image (bitmap).

Thank you,
-eric

It appears that this is the way Access reports work when the barcode is drawn and there is nothing we can do to bring the barcode over the image. The following are the options:
1. Move the barcode to a place where there is nothing else on the form or report.
2. Cut the image in parts so there is no image where the barcode will appear.
3. Make a portion of the image transparent so the barcode could be seen behind it.
4. Use the Data Matrix 2D Font package in Access. This will allow the barcode in the front, see attached below.

That may be an option although it would not look good.

Are you able to make a portion of the image transparent so the barcode could be seen behind it?

Hi Brant, that also doesn't work.

Try “send to back” on the the image. Because the barcode is actually drawn, I do not believe “bring to front” will work on it.
