ASP Barcode Generator Script User Manual
The ASP Barcode Generator Script is a server-side script, which adds barcode
streaming generation capability to any website that supports ASP scripts. Once
installed, server-side barcode images are generated on the server in memory and
streamed to the client without saving any temp files on the server.
- After the files are extracted from the ZIP file download, copy the files
needed to a webserver where ASP script processing is enabled. Each file contains
the name of the supported symbology. When in doubt, IDAutomation recommends
the file in a browser window and verify that a default barcode appears. If it
does not, ensure the files are installed in the proper folder on the server.
Additionally, verify that ASP processing is enabled.
- Integrate the resulting URL into your web application as a dynamic IMG tag,
replacing the D= parameter with the data being encoded.
- If necessary, refer to the parameters section
below to modify additional parameters. For example, the following parameters enable
ApplyTilde and create a GS1-128 barcode by encoding (21) as the AI with a
height of 30 pixels:
IDAutomation recommends using default values for all properties, unless
requirements dictate otherwise.
||When True in Code 128
with the Auto character set, the format
~??? may be used to specify the
ASCII code of
the character to be encoded and several other
Options are enabled including encoding of GS1-128 AIs.
This Parameter is only valid in
||The height of the
barcode in pixels.
||Automatically adds the
check digit to the barcode when equal to ‘T’. * The default in
Code-39 is F.
|Check Character in Text
||Automatically adds the
check digit that is encoded in the barcode to the human readable text
that is displayed when equal to ‘T’.
||The data that is to be
encoded in the barcode.
|Narrow to Wide Ratio
||The narrow to wide ratio
of symbologies that only contain narrow and wide bars such as Code 39,
Interleaved 2 of 5 and MSI. Valid values are 2 and 3.
the orientation of the barcode. Valid values are 0, 90, 180 and 270.
||If set to ‘F’, the human
readable text interpretation will not be displayed with the barcode.
|XDimension in pixels
||The number of pixels to
determine the overall barcode width. Default = 1 which is 1/96 of an
inch and about 12 MILS.
||The font size used for
human readable text.
Only values of 10 and 12 are applicable. Any
other values must be implemented manually by displaying a text field
below the barcode.
Only commonly used parameters are included in the script generator files.
This ensures quick and efficient barcode generation. If additional properties or symbologies are needed, consider
Barcode Generator Service or implementation of one of IDAutomation's
compiled barcode products that incorporate streaming capability, which include
the ASP Barcode Server for IIS
and the Java Servlet which is part of the
Java Barcode Package.
Streaming Barcode Implementation
After installation, the barcode script efficiently generates streaming
barcodes over the web for any application as a
dynamic image and may be embedded with the IMG tag. Parameters in the URL determine the data that is encoded. To transition from the examples provided, replace
with your unique URL that is used to generate streaming barcodes.
