Manual - BCGgs1128

Introduction

The GS1-128 code is a normalization of the standards from http://www.gs1.org/ based on the BCGcode128. This code is an international standard which provides a way to exchange data between producers and distributors. The GS1-128 must start with the function 1 (~F1). It can contain multiple identifiers, however it mustn't be larger than 48 characters, this limit excludes the mandatory character ~F1. In order to facilitate the reading, the identifiers are surrounded by parentheses in the label; those parentheses are not encoded in the barcode.

There are different ways to send the data of your barcode to the method parse(), for instance, the following code:

IdentifierContent
0112345678912343
92123
15880422

(01)12345678912343(92)123(15)880422

can be encoded like this

  • A formatted string:
    parse('(01)12345678912343(92)123~F1(15)880422')
  • A non-formatted string:
    parse('011234567891234392123~F115880422')
  • A simple formatted table:
    parse(array('(01)12345678912343', '(92)123', '(15)880422'))
  • A simple mixed table:
    parse(array('0112345678912343', '(92)123~F115880422'))
  • A double table containing couples (ID, CONTENT)
    parse(array(array('01', '12345678912343'), array('92', '123'), array('15', '880422')))

* Note about ~F1: If you provide the data in a string, you have to provide a separator at the end of your identifier if this one doesn't cover the maximum and is not positioned at the end of the code.

If you didn't indicate the checksum in the data and it is mandatory, it will be automatically calculated.
ex: parse('011234567891234') will give you: (01)1234567891234 3

There are two standards for the GS1-128, the strict and legacy modes. In legacy mode, separators are added between each identifier. In strict mode, separators are added only if the content of your data doesn't cover the maximum allowed. In this mode, it is highly recommended to use the table C if you use only numbers in your barcode. The following example will help you to understand the difference between those two modes:

Legacy Mode:
(01) content with fixed size [Separator] (91) content with variable size [Separator] (8020) content with variable size

Strict Mode:
(01) content with fixed size (91) content with variable size [Separator *] (8020) content with variable size

* The identifier 91 must contain between 1 and 90 characters. If this one contains 90 characters, there is no separator added.

Method explanations

  • __construct($start) — Specifies by which table the barcode should start
    Description
    The argument can be A, B, C or null. See the setStart() method for more information.
    The default value is C.
  • getStrictMode() — Gets if the strict mode is activated
    Description
    See setStrictMode() for more details.
    Returns
    bool - true if activated, false otherwise
  • setStrictMode($mode) — Specifies which mode to use to generate the barcode
    Description
    By setting the argument to true, the strict mode is used (which is the default mode), if you set false, the code will be generated following the legacy mode. For more information about those two modes, see the introduction.
  • getAllowsUnknownIdentifier() — Gets if unknown identifiers are allowed
    Description
    See setAllowsUnknownIdentifier() for more details.
    Returns
    bool - true if activated, false otherwise
  • setAllowsUnknownIdentifier($allow) — Specifies if unknown identifiers are allowed
    Description
    By setting to true, you are allowed to use any kind of identifiers.
    In this case, a ~F1 character will be added at the end of each identifier even if it wouldn't be necessary.
    The default value is false.
  • getNoLengthLimit() — Gets if no limit is enforced
    Description
    See setNoLengthLimit() for more details.
    Returns
    bool - true if activated, false otherwise
  • setNoLengthLimit($noLengthLimit) — Specifies if no length limit is enforced
  • getThickness() — Returns the thickness of the barcode
    Description
    The thickness of the barcode in pixels. The value isn't multiplied by the scale.
    Returns
    int - value in pixels
  • setThickness($thickness) — Specifies the thickness of the barcode
    Description
    The thickness of the barcode in pixels. This is the vertical size.
  • getLabel() — Gets the label
    Description
    Returns the real value that will be displayed with the barcode. You have to have called the parse() method first.
    Returns
    string - final label
  • setLabel($label) — Sets the label
    Description
    The text label will be written below or above the barcode depending on the barcode. You can write the special value BCGBarcode1D::AUTO_LABEL if you would like your text to be chosen automatically. It will be the value passed to the parse() method.
  • getFont() — Gets the text font for the label
    Description
    Gets the text font for the label.
    Returns
  • setFont($font) — Sets the text font for the label
    Description
    The value of the argument can be either an instance of the BCGFontFile class, BCGFontPhp, or a number between 1 and 5.
    If you are using numbers 1 through 5, PHP fonts are used. Check the PHP Manual.
  • getChecksum() — Gets the checksum appended to the barcode
    Description
    Returns the value that will be appended to the barcode. This method must be called after the method parse().
    Returns
    int - checksum added or false if no checkum is included
  • setDisplayChecksum($display) — Specifies the checksum to be added to the label
    Description
    Setting true will append the checksum to the default label.
    The default value is true.
  • parse($text) — Analyzes a $text message to draw afterwards
    Description
    The data you pass to the $text argument must be supported by the type of barcode you use.
    Check each barcode's introduction section to obtain more information on how to use this method within each symbology.
  • draw($im) — Draws the barcode on the $im
    Description
    The value of the $im argument must be an image resource. The size of the image can be defined by the value received from getDimension().
  • getDimension($w, $h) — Returns an array containing the required size for the image
    Description
    Returns an array in which the first index is the image width and the second index is the image height.
    The arguments are used to specify the starting point of the drawing. Should be 0 for both.
    The BCGDrawing class uses this method to create the image resource.
    Returns
    array(int, int) - [0] is the width, [1] is the height
  • getScale() — Gets the scale of the barcode
    Description
    Gets the scale of the barcode. The value is the number of the "smallest" unit in pixel.
    Returns
    int - value in pixels
  • setScale($scale) — Sets the scale of the barcode
    Description
    The barcode will be $x times bigger. Then a pixel will be $x by $x for its size.
  • getForegroundColor() — Gets the color of the bars
    Description
    Gets the color of the bars of the barcode.
    Returns
  • setForegroundColor($color) — Sets the color of the bars
    Description
    Sets the color of the bars of the barcode. By default, the color is black. This argument can be a BCGColor class or any other argument that BCGColor can accept in its constructor.
  • getBackgroundColor() — Gets the color of the spaces
    Description
    Gets the color of the spaces of the barcode.
    Returns
  • setBackgroundColor($color) — Sets the color of the spaces
    Description
    Sets the color of the spaces of the barcode. By default, the color is white. This argument can be a BCGColor class or any other argument that BCGColor can accept in its constructor.
  • setColor($fg, $bg) — Sets the color of the bars and spaces
    Description
    An easy and fast method to set the color of the bars and spaces. Check the setForegroundColor() and setBackgroundColor().
  • getOffsetX() — Gets the X offset
    Description
    Gets the X offset of the barcode in pixels. The value isn't multiplied by the scale.
    Returns
    int - value in pixels
  • setOffsetX($value) — Sets the X offset
    Description
    Specifies the X offset of the barcode in pixels multiplied by the scale. The required size returned by getDimension() will be modified accordingly.
  • getOffsetY() — Gets the Y offset
    Description
    Gets the Y offset of the barcode in pixels. The value isn't multiplied by the scale.
    Returns
    int - value in pixels
  • setOffsetY($value) — Sets the Y offset
    Description
    Specifies the Y offset of the barcode in pixels multiplied by the scale. The required size returned by getDimension() will be modified accordingly.
