This page concerns basic information of Identcode, as well as its generating and printing components.
This part talks about the Identcode barcode
, a numeric code which encodes number 0-9. This code is mainly used by the Deutsche Post AG (DHL). The encoding pattern of this code is Interleaved 2 of 5, but with a different check digit.
Generating and Printing Identcode Barcodes
OnBarcode provides comprehensive Identcode generators and scanner components for Java, .NET, Android, iOS developments and several reporting applications.
The structure of Identcode is as below:
Identcode Barcode Size Setting
As for Identcode size setting, three factors should be considered: module width (i.e. X dimension) barcode width and height.
Identcode Data Encoding
Being a postal barcode symbology, Identcode encodes only numeric digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.
Identcode Encoding Pattern
Identcode barcode uses the Interleaved 2 of 5 encoding scheme, i.e. data is encoded in both bars and spaces. The difference is that Identcode need a compulsory module 10 checksum digit for better data security.
Identcode Barcode Checksum Digit
Identcode specifications require a module 10 checksum digit, which will automatically added by OnBarcode Identcode Generators.
