IMPORTANT: Bar codes can easily be printed using a Report or DataWindow, designed in PowerBuilder's Report Painter or DataWindow Painter. It is very easy to modify existing Reports or DataWindows to print bar codes, or to create new ones. 

See: Printing bar codes in a Report or DataWindow

Only resort to PowerScript code if a Report or DataWindow is not sufficient.

Most people will use a Report or DataWindow to print bar codes.

Although we recommended that you print bar codes using a Report or DataWindow, if you cannot achieve the results you want, you can use PowerScript code to generate and print bar codes.
