Hyphen and space in code39 font

We are using the IDAutomation Code 39 Barcode Fonts in Visual Foxpro.

When we used IDAutomationC39XS to print barcode, the scanner does not read.

We now have to print barcode with values have hyphen or space. How do we do this?

For example we need print barcode for
"*"+"MICRON TECHNoLOGY"+"*"
"*"+"MT46H12M16LFDD-48IT"+"*"

Operating System: Windows 7

Best Answer

IDAutomation provides multiple methods of space character support with Code-39 Fonts:
· When using the standard fonts, substitute the "=" (equal) or "_" (underscore) character for the space character.
· Font Encoders may be used to perform automatic conversion within several supported applications and development environments.
· Symbol Encoded Fonts may be used to encode the space character without a substitution character; available in the latest version. The Symbol Encoded Fonts contain the letter “Y” or the word "Symbol" in the font name.

The Hyphen (ASCII45) is part of the base Code-39 character set so it should not be giving scan errors.
