Best Answer

Creating a barcode using fonts requires two components: the barcode font and the barcode font encoder. The font encoder is responsible for
adding specific characters to the data such as check digits and start/stop characters. It may even format the data, making it unreadable to the human eye but
readable to the barcode font. A valid barcode is created using a two step process:

1. Encode the data (with a font encoder).
2. Apply the barcode font (to the encoded data).



The example displays the encoded data for several barcode symbologies (barcode types).
