Initializing the Barcode

The following example demonstrates how to define the Barcode.


Basic Configuration

To configure the Barcode, pass the configuration options as attributes:

  • The name of the Barcode is mandatory. It specifies the "id" attribute of the widget.

  • You can select the appropriate encoding (symbology) from the available options. Specify it by passing an enum value to the encoding method.

    .Border(border => border.Color("red").Width(2)))

Functionality and Features

The Barcode supports a set of encoding types.

Referencing Existing Instances

To reference an existing Barcode instance, use the configuration option. Once a reference is established, use the Barcode client-side API to control its behavior.

  // Place the following after the declaration of the Barcode for ASP.NET MVC.
  $(function() {
      // The Name() of the Barcode is used to get its client-side instance.
      var barcode = $("#barcode").data("kendoBarcode");
      barcode.value("foo") // Supply a valid value for that encoding. Then, the Barcode will redraw automatically.
