All DynamicBarcode Creator classes support the following five properties. Use these properties to set a barcode's margin, x dimension, and text alignment. All DynamicBarcode Creator barcode classes inherit from the Barcode class.
|BackColor||Gets or sets a barcode's background color.|
|BarcodeMargin||Gets or Sets a barcode's margins.|
|BarColor||Gets or sets a barcode's bar color.|
|Unit||Gets or sets a barcodes unit.|
|XDimension||Gets or sets a barcode's XDimension.|
The BarcodeMargin property defines the space around a barcode. Set a barcode for the Top, Bottom, Left, and/or Right using the Margin structure. The margin is the same color as the background color of the barcode. If required, add a quiet zone (the blank space on either end of a linear barcode) using the Left and Right margins.
The X-Dimension is the width of a single bar drawn in the barcode. The default value of X-Dimension is four for QRcode and two for all other barcodes.
The TextAlign property sets the horizontal alignment of text at the bottom of a barcode and is set to left, right or center.
Intelligent Mail Barcode and UPC/EAN Barcodes
A few things to note regarding the Intelligent Mail Barcode and UPC/EAN barcodes.
- You cannot use the Align enumeration for text on the Intelligent Mail Barcode or any UPC/EAN Barcodes.
- Position the Intelligent Mail Barcode text above or below the barcode; the barcode is horizontally aligned to the left.
- The UPC/EAN barcode text is embedded at the bottom of the barcode; however, for any UPC/EAN supplements, the text is above the supplement barcode horizontally aligned to the right.
