Defining a form barcode

Because you can define over 65 000 barcodes, it is important that the barcode you define matches hexadecimal code for the pre-printed barcode exactly.


To add or change a barcode for an existing Snapshot:

  1. Ensure that the printer is in Not Ready status.
  2. Make sure that you have loaded the Snapshot you want to change.
  3. Select Forms -> Form Settings.
  4. Enter the new value in the Form Barcode field.

    If you change the value to 0000, barcode checking will no longer be done for this form when it is loaded in the future.

  5. Select OK to accept the new value.

To define a barcode for a new Snapshot:

  1. Select Forms -> Form Settings.
  2. Enter a four-character hexadecimal value from 0000 to FFFFin the Form Barcode field. This hexadecimal "number" must match the binary code for the pre-printed barcode.

    This value must match the value of the barcode printed on the form you are defining. If you enter 0000, you are "turning off" (disabling) barcode checking. The printer will not look for a barcode when the form is being loaded.

  3. Make sure that all printer settings are how you would like them to be saved.
  4. Select Frequent Tasks -> Snapshot on the touchscreen.
  5. Select Save current settings as....
  6. Enter a new name for the Snapshot.
  7. Select OK.
  8. Select Close to return to the Main panel.
