Currently If you are saving the image as en EmbeddedPNG the text will not show in the image.  I was told back in march this was scheduled to be fixed in the next release ( I assume that means the Q2 release),  Is this feature/fix still planned for the Q2 release?

Just tried the Demo barcode application and it appears the ShowText fix did not make it into the Q2 release.

Unless the Demos were not updated.  Can you confirm if the Show Text fix made it in and the demo is out of date, or the fix was not included in the q2 release?

Hello Chris,

We had some task with higher priority and didn't able to complete this improvement for this Q. You can see the improvements and fixes here:

We will do our best to improve it for the upcoming service pack or next release.

Hi Chris, you can try the next code, it worked for me.
System.Drawing.Image codigoBarras = rbCodigoBarras.GetImage();
e.Graphics.DrawImage(codigoBarras,0,0,300,80);
e.Graphics.DrawString(rbCodigoBarras.Text, new Font("Arial", 10), new SolidBrush(Color.Black), new PointF(100,80));

Greetings

So this fix is about a year past due when it was suppose to be released.  Any update on this?  Or is this update simply not going to happen?

Hello Chris,

I could not say for sure. It is requested, so we will try to implement it in future.

But because text can be written below the image as plain text it is not an emergency issue. We are always focused on the most desired functionality.

I don't think the fix is as trivial as just putting a label under the barcode.  Formats like UPC-A have the text situated BETWEEN the taller lines of the barcode, not below it.  Printing below confuses users who know where the text is supposed to be.  We ended up with a hackish solution involved 4 labels (for single-char on left,  5 chars in middle-left, 5 chars in middle-right, and single-char on right) with negative top margins to slide them up over the barcode image so that it looks correct.  Obviously tempermental with respect to resizing the barcode, which means different negative margin, different left-to-right placement of the 4 labels, and different font-size so that they properly fit the empty spaces between the taller bars.  Its workable but should not be necessary at all.

Hello John,

We understand your point of view very well. But when this problem will be fixed depends on the priority of all tasks listed in our Roadmap and the importance of the other bugs logged in our system.

Please excuse us once again for the inconvenience caused.
