    Hello,
    I need to add a Code25Interleaved bar code in a report.
    If I put 116201406001 in the bar code value and read it with a bar code scanner, the displayed bar code shows 01162014060018.
    How can I remove the additional digits?

    Hello,
    I have another problem with this bar code: the requirement is that the bar code should be only 2mm high, but it seems that the minimum height for a bar code should be 5mm.
    Is there any way to have the bar code displayed in only 2mm?

    Hello Patrcik,

    On your questions:
    1. The additional digit is a check sum, which can be excluded. In the official release there is an issue with the Bracode.Checksum property, which is fixed in the latest available internal build Telerik Reporting Q3 2014 version 8.2.14.1107.
    2. By default the Barcode displays the value as text, and if the space is not enough at least for the text there will be shown an error. Thus you need to set the Bracode.Encoder.ShowText to false, then there will be no issues to display a Barcode with Height 2mm.


    Let us know if you need any further help.

    Hello Stef,
    1. This is annoying that the bug was not listed in the changes log: this would avoid this thread...
    2. In my case the text display was disabled, but the control displayed this error message. After closing the designer and opening it again, the error disappeared.
