Hello,

I looked at Appendix B from the book, which is about creating barcodes. But I was unable to find anything related to disabling the baseline text completely. I can set the alternate text to '', but that will still take up space under the barcode. Is it possible to disable the text in the barcodes?

Re: Create barcodes without text
Read on to page 614: If you want to produce a barcode without text, you have to set the barcode font to null with setFont().

Re: Create barcodes without text
No problem; I like a question that is easy to answer once in a while smilie
Note that I'm probably the only one answering questions here.
Maybe I should advise people to use the mailing list instead, where there are more subscribers.
