How to control barcode width & height in Java Barcode Generator
Barcode Size Settings in Java Barcode Generator
The generated barcode image includes 3 areas:
Drawing Area, Minimum Area, and Image Area.
Drawing Area: the area to draw barcode and barcode text
Width: is decided by barcode module width (property X, and property X minimum is 1 pixel, and must be integer) * the number of barcode modules
Height: is decided by barcode module height (property Y) and displaying text height
Minimum Area: some barcode types need minimum space around barcode (a.k.a quite zone). You can set the space through 4 properties,
leftMargin, rightMargin, topMargin, bottomMargin.
Width: leftMargin + Drawing Area Width + rightMargin
Height: topMargin + Drawing Area Height + bottomMargin
Image Area: the generated barcode image area.
Width: you can set barcode image area width through property barcodeWidth.
However if your barcodeWidth is less than Minimum Area Width, barcode library will ignore this property (barcodeWidth) setting.
Height: you can set barcode image area width through property barcodeHeight.
However if your barcodeHeight is less than Minimum Area Height, barcode library will ignore this property (barcodeHeight) setting.
