Barcode Overview

The Barcode represents data in a machine-readable format.

All graphics are rendered on the client by using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).

Basic Configuration

To create a Barcode, use an HTML div element and, optionally, use CSS to set its height and width.

The following example demonstrates how to initialize the Barcode with its default configuration. Its default encoding is code39.

$(document).ready(function() {
    $("#barcode").kendoBarcode({
        value:"FOO"
    });
});

After you provide the Barcode value, select the encoding type (symbology). For more information, refer to the article on encoding. To set the color, background, and padding margin of the text, use the Barcode API.

$(document).ready(function() {
    $("#barcode").kendoBarcode({
        value:"1234567",
        type:"ean8"
    });
});

Functionality and Features

The Barcode supports a set of encoding types.
