Code128 requires start/stop characters as well as checksum character. As a result you can not just type the numbers and format them with Morovia Code128 font to get a readable barcode. What you need to do is to create barcode string first, and format the barcode string with our Code128 font. Depending on your situation there are a couple of choices to create barcode string:

1. You may create barcode string from FontPal utility and copy/paste into your application;

2. You may import our source code into your application to create barcode strings programatically.
