Barcode Formats

This function provides the ability to print barcode information on the receipt header or footer. The authorised user can define as many barcode formats as they wish as the formats are assigned an internal, unique number. This number is the value specified in the Till maintenance function for up to 3 different barcodes. Currently EAN-13 and Code39 are the only types supported.

The Type specifier can be either Static (that is a specific value set in the format) or Dynamic where a tag indicates a dynamic value from the transaction to be used. If the barcode type is EAN-13 then the maximum barcode length is 13 and must match the sum of the lengths of all the fields defined for the format.

To set up the barcode printing to the receipt header or footer:

  1. Define the barcode values (1, 2 and 3) to use for a specific till profile via the Barcode Formats functionality.

  2. Add one or more of the <BARCODE1>, <BARCODE2>, <BARCODE3> specifiers to the Till Location Receipt header/footer formats.

Note: It is the store’s responsibility to ensure that the data chosen will be valid when converted to a barcode – so if the location is to be included in the format, the store must ensure that they use numeric location values.

The new barcode header/footer and field definitions are passed to the till and if the options are set up for a barcode it tries to find the associated format. If no matching format is found the <BARCODEn> tag is replaced with an empty string and the receipt is printed as normal.
