barcode.ini

This is an extension to the standard SAPLPD and barcode.dll implementation.

Because the length of the Printer Control is limited, some complex configuration options cannot be stored in a Printer Control. This additional method allows the Printer Control to be very simple, because the Printer Control simply selects an external Printer Control stored in the barcode.ini file.

Here are two example Printer Controls;

bM=1,D=
bM=2,D=

and here are the corresponding entries in the barcode.ini file;

###### Comment - Printer Control 1 ######
M=1,C=128B,S1=3,S2=6,S3=9,S4=12,L1=3,L2=6,L3=9,L4=12,H=40,A=1
###### Comment - Printer Control 2 ######
M=2,C=PDF-417,S1=3,L1=4,H=12,C=4,R=5,T=0,E=1,EC=2,F=C:\DATA.TXT

M=<Control Number>

When the Printer Control contains M= the value (e.g. M=1) selects the corresponding Printer Control in the barcode.ini file. There is no limit to the length of the Printer Controls in the the barcode.ini file.
