    Hi,
    I can generate CODE 128 barcode on Wijmo report viewer. How ever none of these barcodes are working after printing from label printer (Argox).

    I have attached two pictures. One is from the barcode view on the screen. Other is after the print. As you can see the bars of the barcodes are little bit different.

    My platform is VS 2012 (Same on VS 2010) + c1.Report2 2.6.20122.54515 + Wijmo.Controls.3 3.5.20122.77 (FW 3.5)

    Tested on IE10 + Chrome

    So what is the problem here and How can I solve?

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Sorry for the delay in response on this.
    It seems a problem to me as well and I have escalated this issue to the development team for review. I would update you as soon as I hear anything from them.

    Hello,

    According to the developer, this issue is a design behavior.
    The "print" button should only be used when the printout fidelity is not critical, as it prints using the browser's functionality, and the report is printed as an image which always results in loss of fidelity and depends on the specific system , so nothing can be done.

    For fidelity critical applications such as barcodes the report should be printed via "export to PDF" (that's how most online applications that print documents with barcodes work).

    Thanks Ashish, I'll try with PDF.
