a variety of programs.
- Contains 4 different Code 11 barcode font versions in
a variety of different heights.
- Compatible with Microsoft® Windows®, Macintosh, Unix,
Linux and others.
- TrueType, OpenType, PCL LaserJet soft fonts and PostScript
font versions are included.
- All Code 11 Fonts require special formatting so that
the data, when the barcode font is applied, will be scannable.
free font tools, macros and plug-ins are provided to
complete this automatically.
Code 11 Barcode Information
Code 11 barcode is a high-density numeric barcode
that requires a checksum to be calculated, and can
sometimes be difficult to use for non-programmers.
For those who may want an easier-to-use numeric
barcode, consider the IDAutomation
Codabar Barcode Font, which does not require
checksums to be calculated.
- The symbology of the Code 11 barcode character
set consists of symbols representing the numbers
0-9, a dash symbol, the start character and the
stop character. In the code11 barcode font, the
parentheses are used for start and stop characters.

Code 11 Features
Code 11 barcode fonts are scalable and should be
printed at the correct font size to suit the application
and scanner equipment. The Code 11 barcode font
was designed to be printed at a minimum font size
of 12 points; however, it can print smaller point
sizes if the printer and scanner equipment support
it. Four versions of the Code 11 barcode font are
provided to support different height/width requirements.
For more information, refer to the
Code 11 Barcode Specifications.
- The following is sample code from Visual Basic
6 that selects the Code 11 barcode font and size.
Printer.FontName = "IDAutomationC11S"
Printer.FontSize = 12
- TrueType fonts are supplied in PC and Macintosh
format. The TrueType TTF fonts are compatible with
Macintosh OS X and all versions of Microsoft Windows,
- The Developer License grants the right to convert
IDAutomation Code 11 fonts to other formats as necessary
including TrueDoc and OpenType.
- Also included are two PostScript versions of
the Code 11 barcode fonts. Binary and ASCII versions
of PostScript are also provided.
To help users integrate Code 11 barcodes into applications,
IDAutomation provides Code 11 checksum calculations
in the following font tools:
In this example, the data to be encoded is "21435"
with one check digit, which is a modulo 11 checksum.
- Determine the weights of the numbers to be encoded,
starting from the right side of the number and working
to the left. Then, multiply the number of the barcode
by the weighting and add these together as in the
|Data to encode:
|| 2 1 4 3
4 3 2 1
||10 4 12 6 5
|Then add them:
||10 + 4 + 12 + 6 + 5 = 37
- Next divide the total by 11 to get the remainder,
which is 37/11 = 3 remainder 4. That remainder is
the check character.
- To generate a Code 11 barcode encoding the data
21435 that can be scanned, enter (214354), highlight
the data and select the appropriate Code 11 font
to turn it into a readable barcode.
