MSI Plessy Size Setting Introduction

Width Setting

The width of MSI Plessy barcode image is influenced by the parameters in the following table.

Parameter Parameter Description Range Related Property
Image Width(W) The width of the MSI Plessy image - BarCodeWidth
Module Bar Width (X) The width of the module bar in MSI Plessy X ≥ 1 pixel X
Left Quiet Zone Width (Q1) The space between the left edge of the image and the leftmost bar; Q1= 10 X + Left Margin Width Q1 ≥ 10X LeftMargin
Right Quiet Zone Width (Q2) The space between the right edge of the image and the rightmost bar; Q2= 10 X + Right Margin Width Q2 ≥ 10X RightMargin


Supplement note: the quantity of data characters also has an influence over the width of the barcode. See C# MSI Plessy Size Setting - Image Width Setting.

Height Setting

The height of MSI Plessy barcode image is made up by Top Margin width, Bottom Margin width, Bar Height, space between barcode and text, and the height of Text.

Parameter Parameter Description Range Related Property
Image Height (H) The height of the image H ≥ 5mm or 15%W H
Bar Height (Y) The height of the bar - Y
Top Margin Width The height of the top margin ≥ 0 TopMargin
Bottom Margin Width The height of the bottom margin ≥ 0 BottomMargin
Text Height The height of the human readable text font - Text Font
Text Margin The space between symbol and text ≥ 0 TextMargin

How to Use C#.NET MSI Plessy Generator Size Setting Properties

C#.NET MSI Plessy Generator provides C#.NET developers with a full set of properties for MSI Plessy size setting.

Before starting size setting, please install C#.NET MSI Plessy Generator and add the following code as namespace reference.

using KeepAutomation.Barcode.Bean;

using KeepAutomation.Barcode;

using System.Drawing.Imaging;

Input the following C# Code to use C#.NET MSI Plessy Generator where MSI Plessy bar code image is needed.

BarCode msi = new BarCode();

msi.Symbology = Symbology.MSI;

Input a string value for CodeToEncode, which will be encoded as data in your MSI Plessy. Pay attention to the data encoding instruction for MSI Plessy.

msi.CodeToEncode = "111";

BarcodeUnit

Property BarcodeUnit is in control of unit of measure. Before setting the bar width and image size, you should know for sure all the properties in the coming passages are based on the unit of measure. BarcodeUnit defaults as Pixel, and you can change it to cm or inch.

msi.BarcodeUnit = BarcodeUnit.Pixel;

X

Property X (Float; Default: 1) is used in MSI Plessy module bar width setting. Try to set X using C# code as follows:

msi.X = 2;

Now, the width of a bar in MSI Plessy has been changed from 1 pixel (as default) to 2 pixel. You can make it even greater if wider bars are in need.

Y

Property Y (Float; Default: 50) sets the bar height of the MSI Plessy.

msi.Y = 40;

The width of bars in MSI Plessy has been changed from 50 pixels (as default) to 40 pixels. You can make it even greater or smaller.

BarCodeHeight and BarCodeWidth

C#.NET MSI Plessy Generator is also equipped with functional properties BarCodeHeight (Float; Default: 0) and BarCodeWidth (Float; Default: 0) to set the size of the whole MSI Plessy bar code image.

msi.BarCodeHeight = 70;

msi.BarCodeWidth = 175;

Note: If the setting of image size conflict with the settings in bar width or bar height, you can enable AutoResize to make the generated MSI Plessy compatible with MSI Plessy barcode specification.

TopMargin, BottomMargin, LeftMargin, and RightMargin

MSI Plessy C#.NET Generator will generate a quiet zone at each end of the MSI Plessy symbol automatically. The auto-generated quiet zone is 10X width. You can increase width of quiet zone by increasing the value of properties LeftMargin (Float; Default: 0) and RightMargin (Float; Default: 0). Also, the height of the image can be increased using TopMargin (Float; Default: 0) and BottomMargin (Float; Default: 0).

msi.TopMargin = 10;

msi.BottomMargin = 10;

msi.LeftMargin = 10;

msi.RightMargin = 10;

TextMargin

Property TextMargin (Float; Default: 6 pixel) controls the width of space between MSI Plessy bar code and the human readable text below the barcode.

msi.TextMargin = 10;
