Human Readable Data Follow

How do I set the Human Readable Data only to display the data and not the prefix in the data.

Hi Chris, thanks for your post. It sounds to me like you've got a single data source in your barcode object that is using a Prefix transform. If this is the case, you're better off using additional data sources to create a prefix, instead of using the prefix transform. Here's an image to show you what I mean:


In the example above, you can see in (1) that we only have a single data source; the data source itself only has the data of "1999" but we have a transform-type prefix (set as "PREFIX-" for ease of recognition). This is probably what you have set up. Instead, do the following:

  1. Delete the prefix in the transform; then, add a new data source with the prefix data instead.
  2. Go to the Human Readable properties...
  3. ... and set the Visibility to Set per data source. Click on Select and...
  4. ... deselect Data Source 1 (if you've moved the data source to the top of the list, which you would if it serves to act as a prefix).

You'll note that the barcode object (in the image) is no longer displaying the prefix, though it is part of the data if it were to be scanned.

I hope that helps!
