Matrix 2 of 5 is a linear one-dimensional bar code. Matrix 2 of 5 is a self-checking numerical-only bar code.

Unlike the Interleaved 2 of 5, all of the information is encoded in the bars; the spaces are of a fixed width and used only to separate the bars. Matrix 2 of 5 is used primarily for warehouse sorting, photo finishing, and airline ticket marking.

The following properties are specific to the Matrix 2 of 5 type and available in the Properties panel under the Symbology property:

  • Calculate a Checksum
    Specifies whether to calculate a checksum for the bar code.
  • Wide Narrow Ratio
    Specifies the density of a bar code’s bars.
