When Apply Tilde is not implemented, how do I encode the FNC for Code 128?


I need to encode data for IMpb (using Code 128). I am using your Visual Fox Pro encoder but there is no option for ApplyTilde. In other products, I understand that you can enable ApplyTilde and then encode AIs for variable length data by placing ~212, ~213, ...,~217 before it.

Example:

~212011234567

I even know some encoders and products have the ability to use the parenthesis instead of the ~212.

Example:

(01)1234567

ApplyTilde (referred to as Apply Tilde or Process Tilde) is a option implemented by IDAutomation that allows the user to encode functions for Code 128 and Code 128 standards, such as IMpb, GS1-128, and SSCC18.

IDAutomation has ApplyTilde implemented in its applications, components, and many font encoders that are Feature Level 5 and above. However, there are a few font encoders that do not have ApplyTilde; therefore, another method must be implemented. Font tools recognized as Feature Level 4 can encode AIs with the Ê character. To create the character, from the numeric keypad, hold down Alt and enter 0202.

If the user's only option to create the FNC for Code 128 is a Feature Level 4 font encoder, place the Ê before each AI.

AI: 8101

Example using Feature Level 4 to encode FNC for AI with Ê:
Ê81010123450901

Example using ~202 with ApplyTilde enabled:
~20281010123450901


Example using ~21X with ApplyTilde enabled:
~21481010123450901

Example using parentheses with ApplyTilde enabled:

(8101)0123450901

All three examples will identify 8101 as the FNC/AI.
