DDS: Add trim-indicator to all mainstream 1D BARCODE (i.e. COD128)
DDS: Add trim-indicator to all mainstream 1D BARCODE (i.e. COD128) like 2D QR barcodes.
Frequently used codes like COD128 lacks the ability to trim right spaces before rendering the barcodes.
Consequently, a real case of a field say of 30 chars, that include the customer side order reference (so high variation between customers in length for such info), when printed, always include spaces even if the intent is to include 10 chars of information (when scanned externally, some could like it or not).
One convoluted way is to include 30 different fields to cover all possible length for the barcode and conditionally print them depending on the size.
Would be nice to finally have a *TRIM option also in 1D fields, not only for 2Ds.
Do not place IBM confidential, company confidential, or personal information into any field.
