    we are evaluating if we can use your reporting system for our software.


    As we are printing many labels directly to label printers (e.g. cab a4+ 200 dpi) we have to know how do you transfer the barcodes of reports to the printer. Are barcodes directly sent using barcode fonts, or are barcodes preprocessed and transfered as images to the printer? Our experience has shown, that if barcodes are sent as image to the barcode printers, that some barcode readers (especially old ones) are not able to read the barcodes.

    Hi Michael,

    Provided you are using the latest HTML5 ReportViewer and a recent version of Telerik Reporting in a modern browser, the bar codes are neither fonts nor bitmap images. The bar codes are representing by SVG objects. Since vector graphic can be scaled without loss of quality, you shouldn't experience that issue with printing your barcodes on a continuous-feed label printer.

    Please let me know if I can help any further.
