How to Generate ITF-14 with Bearer Bar in .NET WinForms

ITF-14 barcode symbol has a unique Bearer Bar that is usually mandatory. But for some specified applications, it can be removed. When a skewed scanning beam enters the barcode symbol through its top or bottom edge, this bar can help reduce the probability of misreads or short scans. Users may use "BearerBarLeft", "BearerBarTop" properties to customize bearer bar.
itf14.BearerBarLeft = 2;
itf14.BearerBarTop = 2;
itf14.BearerBarLeft = 2
itf14.BearerBarTop = 2

How to Generate ITF-14 with Wide to Narrow Ratio in .NET WinForms

Wide to narrow ratio means the ratio between wide bar and narrow bar. The value is 2.0 - 3.0 inclusive, default is 2. If needed, users are able to set "WideNarrowRatio" property to change wide to narrow ratio of ITF-14.
itf14.WideNarrowRatio = 2.0f; 
itf14.WideNarrowRatio = 2.0f
