How do I create a compact barcode?

  • Tagged With:-
  • Ssrs

I have a client who upgraded their Visual Studio from VS 2008 to VS2017. In the previous version, Visual Studio had an add-on software that used to allow barcodes to be added. The new version does not support the add on, so we purchased the IDAutomation SSRS Barcode Generator script to add code 128 barcodes to our SSRS reports. The barcodes from the previous version were nice and compact, allowing us to print on one page. However, the script is creating larger barcodes, which is resulting in the reports to print on two pages. I have adjusted the side of the barcodes by adjusting the height in the script and the making the font Lucida Console 3 pt, but the barcode does not seem compact enough. Is there another way to create the compact barcodes that are more comparable to older versions?

Yes, I used the script from the example that came with the product and kept the font as Lucida Console 2 pt. Thank you for your help!

Make sure you are using the Coe 128 auto function. Can you try the barcode in the example provided in the product zip file and see if that can be made compact enough?

I tried to make the size to 1.5 or 2 pt, but the height of the barcode is all that changes. The length of the barcode is still longer than the previous one. Here are some screenshots that will explain:

This is the new barcode. Here is the old one:

If you see here, the barcode is representing the same value, but the barcode is longer in length. I need to know how to make it shorter in length, rather than height.

The SSRS Barcode Generator can create smaller barcodes by changing the point size to 1.5 or 2 points. If that does not work, let me know.
