Sizing barcode using Active Barcode Control

Sizing barcode using Active Barcode Control

Sizing barcode using Active Barcode Control


I have a report that sends data to a label printer.

It includes a barcode using the Active Barcode Control, with an ID field as the data source.

I can resize the control but the printed barcode is always the same size, which is too small.

How can I make it bigger?

RE: Sizing barcode using Active Barcode Control

I've only had limited exposure to this control, and that was some time ago. I seem to recall that there were some odd sizing rules related to the barcode size that the control followed to ensure the machine readability of the generated barcodes. Sounds like this may be what is tripping you up.

But whatever the issue is, I think it is the control, not Access that is responsible, so you may be better off contacting the developer

RE: Sizing barcode using Active Barcode Control

Thanks for this and sorry for late acknowledgement.

I found that there's a resizing feature in Properties of the Active Barcode Control itself, ie not of the control when it's on the report.
