Hi,

I have a web application that is generating bar codes using Kendo UI Barcode API, however, when we print it using any printer (deskjet printer or barcode printer (Zebra GK420t) the printer barcode are not readable by the scanners.

Inline to this,  we have generated barcode using another tools and printed it and those barcodes are readable by the scanners.

I hope you can advise us on this.

Thanks,

Hi,

This is a high priority issue for us, but we need to know more specifics about the problem.
Can you please provide us sample values and widget configuration used to generate the barcodes?

Does the problem appear only on printed media? Perhaps the barcodes are not printed at sufficient resolution.
Please, try switching to vector output for a quick test:

$("#barcode").kendoBarcode({
  renderAs: "svg",
  value: "2346722",
  type: "ean8",
  width: 280,
  height: 100
});

I hope this helps.

Regards,
