I have made a simple label with a Data Matrix (DM) and a serial number.
When the label was first made, a "Named Data Source" was not used for the DM, but it was coded with the object's "Value" (Format.Objects("SN").Value).
When this label was printed, the readable S/N on each label was updated, but not the DM, it was identical on each label printed.
For this label to work I have to go to Print -> Performance and uncheck "Allow serialization".
(Left labels DM is not updating, "Allow serialization" ticked.)
(Right labels DM is updating, "Allow serialization" unticked.)
If I instead choose to make a "Named Data Source" (Format.NamedSubStrings("SN").Value) and use it for the DM, it works regardless of whether "Allow serialization" is ticked or not.
(Named Data Sources, "Allow serialization" ticked or unticked does not matter)
My question is if this is a feature or a bug? :-)
Why is the DM not updating when using Object Value?
This is printed on a Brady IP300 with BarTender 2022 R5.
