    MicroPDF417MicroPDF417 is two-dimensional (2D), multi-row symbology, derived from PDF417. Micro-PDF417 is designed for applications that need to encode data in a two-dimensional (2D) symbol (up to 150 bytes, 250 alphanumeric characters, or 366 numeric digits) with the minimal symbol size.
    MicroQRCodeMicro QR Code is a variant of QR Code 2005. Compared with other regular QR Codes, it has only one position detection pattern which reduces the barcode size so that it can be used to applications where the space for barcode image is severely restricted.
    MSIMSI Code uses only numbers.
    NoneNone.
    Pdf417Pdf417 is a popular high-density 2-dimensional symbology that encodes up to 1108 bytes of information. This barcode consists of a stacked set of smaller barcodes. Encodes the full ASCII character set. Capable of encoding as many as 2725 data characters.

    RSS14StackedRSS14Stacked is a Reduced Space Symbology that encodes Composite Component (CC) extended EAN and UPC information in less space. This version is the same as RSS14Truncated, but stacked in two rows when RSS14Truncated is too wide.
    RSS14StackedOmnidirectionalRSS14StackedOmnidirectional is a Reduced Space Symbology that encodes Composite Component (CC) extended EAN and UPC information in less space. This version is the same as RSS14, but stacked in two rows when RSS14 is too wide.
    RSS14TruncatedRSS14Truncated is a Reduced Space Symbology that encodes Composite Component (CC) extended EAN and UPC information in less space. This version is a 14-digit EAN.UCC item identification plus Indicator digits for use on small items, not for point-of-sale scanners.
    RSSExpandedRSSExpanded is a Reduced Space Symbology that encodes Composite Component (CC) extended EAN and UPC information in less space. This version is a 14-digit EAN.UCC item identification plus AI element strings (expiration date, weight, etc.) for use with omnidirectional point-of-sale scanners.
    RSSExpandedStackedRSSExpandedStacked is a Reduced Space Symbology that encodes Composite Component (CC) extended EAN and UPC information in less space. This version is the same as RSSExpanded, but stacked in two rows when RSSExpanded is too wide.
    RSSLimitedRSS Limited is a Reduced Space Symbology that encodes Composite Component (CC) extended EAN and UPC information in less space. This version is a 14-digit EAN.UCC item identification with indicator digits of 0 or 1 in a small symbol that is not scanned by point-of-sale scanners.
    SSCC18Serial Shipping Container Code-18 (SSCC-18) Barcode. A type of barcode that can print in the lower 2-inch (or local equivalent) extended area of the Thermal 4" x 8" or 4" x 8¼" (or local equivalent) label.
    TelepenTelepen is a name of a barcode symbology designed in 1972 in the UK to express all 128 ASCII characters without using shift characters for code switching, and using only two different widths for bars and spaces.
    UCCEAN128UCC/EAN –128 uses the complete ASCII character Set. This is a special version of Code 128 used in HIBC applications.
    UPC_AUPC-A uses only numbers (11 numbers and a check digit).
    UPC_E0UPC-E0 uses only numbers. Used for zero-compression UPC symbols. For the Caption property, you may enter either a six-digit UPC-E code or a complete 11-digit (includes code type, which must be 0 (zero)) UPC-A code. If an 11-digit code is entered, the Barcode control will convert it to a six-digit UPC-E code, if possible. If it is not possible to convert from the 11-digit code to the six-digit code, nothing is displayed.
    UPC_E1UPC-E1 uses only numbers. Used typically for shelf labeling in the retail environment. The length of the input string for U.P.C. E1 is six numeric characters.
