The Barcode provides a set of configuration options, which enable you to fine-tune its behavior.

The following configuration settings are supported by the Barcode:


To set the Barcode dimensions, use either of the following approaches:

  • Use CSS rules to set the size of the Barcode or its container.
  • Use the width and height attributes to set the dimensions in pixels.

If the Barcode width is insufficient for the current value and Barcode type, the component will throw an error. Always test the application with the values you expect to see in actual use.
