Good day all,

I am testing out Bartender 9.3 for creating tri-optic barcodes for our tape library as well as for some of our customers.

I have been having trouble creating the codes like these tri-optic.com.

How do i add the colour scheme and how do i invert the barcode ?

Hi trinimoses,

Turn barcode upside down is easy - Right click a barcode > arrange > rotate.

Change background color of human readable text based on each digit like trioptic label - um, a bit complicated.
You can use datasourced picture for this.

Attached format demonstrates Trioptic style colored human readable.
place picture files (0.png, 1.png etc) to the same folder as format.
Colored background is Datasourced picture. each digits are retrieved from Label object string of barcode, then extracted by truncation.
Barcode is Code 39 regular, placed upside down.

see attached format.

if it doesn't look smart, you can try changing box object's FillColor by VB Script(needed Automation edition.) - see [url="http://seagullscientific.invisionzone.com/index.php?/topic/213-how-to-change-object-properties/"]this topic[/url] too.

Hope that helps!

I have returned to our licensed version of 8.0 .. Is it possible to get a tri-optic sample sheet that would work with bartender 8.0 ? I can no longer download the one in this message any more.

Hi Trinimoses, I am sorry to tell that due to forum policy change, the zip attachment had been removed. Moreover I lost the files so cannot immediately recreate the format. the attached picture tells that - you need to create picture files (box) for each color.
In bartender, create some picture objects for each digits. for each picture, select type as datasource picture. In datasoruce tab, follow like the attached picture to show 0.png, 1.png etc.
hope that helps.
