EAN-13 Supplemental Barcode Size Setting Parameters in Java

Java EAN 13 can only encode 12 digits with a check sum. Moreover, 2-digit (EAN 2) and 5-digit (EAN 5) supplemental barcodes may be added for a total of 14 or 17 data digits. These are generally used for periodicals (to indicate the serial number), or books and weighed products like food (to indicate the selling price), respectively.

  • subSpace: the space between main EAN 13 barcode and supplemental barcode image; the default value is 15 pixel.
  • subHeight: a multiplicator of the height of the bar module; The default is 0.8 (80% of Y - bar module height).
