Viewing the functions

In Superbase, to view the list of functions;

All of the bar code functions return a bar code as a string. The returned string automatically prints a bar code when the text is printed using the appropriate TrueType bar code font.

For each type of bar code, specific fonts and font sizes are use;

See: Bar code font name and font size to use to discover the font and font size to select for each type of bar code.

Some functions return human-readable text, to print the text below bar codes. It is only necessary to use a function to get the human-readable text, if the text includes a printable check character.

Because the human-readable text can be returned as a separate string, the text can be printed anywhere, using any regular text font.
