Purpose

Barcodes cannot be centered in Smartform fields, although regular text can be centered

 

Overview

  • The reason for the problem is that the Smartform composer cannot know the width of the barcode when it places the barcode on the page
  • The picture of the barcode is created by the printer (old technology) or by the spool workprocess during the print (new technology)
  • The Smartforms composer only knows the barcode text, but not the barcode itself, so the Smartform composer can only use a default width

 

Procedure

  • As a workaround you can create a window with a size that will fit your barcode
  • Place this window in your form where you need the barcode to be positioned
  • No labels
