Barcode Types

The Kendo UI for Angular Barcode supports a variety of one-dimensional (1D) industry barcodes.

To configure the Barcode symbology (encoding scheme), set the type attribute.

The following table lists the available types and supported values by each Barcode type. Note that the checksum digits are computed automatically and that all type values can also be spelled in lowercase.

If the value does not match the restrictions for the chosen type, the Barcode will throw an error. Always test the application with the values you expect to see in actual use.
