Hello,

I have Bartender pro. I've created a label with a EAN-13 barcode, but I want it invisible if there is no data in the EAN database field.

Is this possible?

Hi ErikvB,

Would you mind sharing how did you do this?

Note that an ISBN is based on the EAN13 symbology and starts with a value of 978.

 

In general, setting the value of a barcode to nothing will cause it not to print.  Sometimes it might be required to render the barcode by BarTender rather than by the printer, depending on the BarTender/printer driver version in use.

 

Later versions of BarTender support the dynamic control of label objects that allow you to programmatically set whether an object is to be printed or not.  See the below white paper:
