Question

How can you add an FNC or Function command to your barcode?

Answer

FNC or Function commands are prefaced with a caret (or "wedge") symbol, that acts as an escape character: ^

For example, to encode a Data Matrix barcode with a FNC+3 command, add ^3 to the beginning of the barcode's data. The command does not appear within the barcode's human readable portion.

More Information (Optional)

Different barcode symbologies support different commands. For more information on a particular symbology, refer to the BarTender Help File:

As an example, the supported commands for a Data Matrix symbology can be found under its page at:
