GS1-128 - EAN-128 (UCC)
GS1-128 (EAN-128) was developed to provide a worldwide format and standard for exchanging common data between companies.
While other barcodes simply encode data with no respect for what the data represents, GS1-128 encodes data and encodes what that data represents.
The following properties are specific to the GS1-128 (EAN-128) type and available in the Property Grid under the Symbology property:
- Character Set
- Specifies the set of symbols which can be used when setting the bar code's text.
- FNC1 Functional Character
- Specifies the symbol (or set of symbols) in the barcode text that will be replaced with the FNC1 functional character when the bar code's bars are drawn.
- Human-Readable Text
- Specifies whether or not parentheses should be included in the bar code's text to improve the readability of the bar code's text.
