IDAutomation includes the capability in this product to create barcodes and HR text for GS1-128 (UCC/EAN128) symbols with the built-in ApplyTilde feature which is enabled by default. The following describes the changes required to implement GS1-128. This GS1-128 symbol example is created from 18 digits of numbers in the GS1DataField field.
DataToEncode is the only required parameter in the functions provided. Optional parameters are separated with the pipe "|" character and may be appended to the DataToEncode, for example IDAutomation_Nat_C39("TESTDATA" & "|3" ; 8)

|2D Data Matrix Barcode Object Parameter Descriptions|
|DataToEncode, ApplyTilde, EncodingMode, PreferredFormat|
This is a string value that represents the data being encoded.
The height of the barcode. The recommended default is 8. The approximate height is determined with the following formula:
Height in Inches = (Font Size) * (BarHeight) * 0.012
Height in CM = (Font Size) * (BarHeight) * 0.03
Determines whether a check digit should be automatically calculated and included for the DataToEncode. Valid values are 0 (false) and 1 (true). Default = 0 for Code 39 and Interleaved 2 of 5.
If ApplyTilde is set to 1 (true), the default value, the tilde will be processed. Set this to 0 (False) to disable this feature.
