Shows how to use the BARCODE field to display U.S. ZIP codes in the form of a barcode.

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);


// Below are two ways of using BARCODE fields to display custom values as barcodes.
// 1 -  Store the value that the barcode will display in the PostalAddress property:
FieldBarcode field = (FieldBarcode)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldBarcode, true);

// This value needs to be a valid ZIP code.
field.PostalAddress = "96801";
field.IsUSPostalAddress = true;
field.FacingIdentificationMark = "C";

Assert.AreEqual(" BARCODE  96801 \\u \\f C", field.GetFieldCode());


// 2 -  Reference a bookmark that stores the value that this barcode will display:
field = (FieldBarcode)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldBarcode, true);
field.PostalAddress = "BarcodeBookmark";
field.IsBookmark = true;

Assert.AreEqual(" BARCODE  BarcodeBookmark \\b", field.GetFieldCode());

// The bookmark that the BARCODE field references in its PostalAddress property
// need to contain nothing besides the valid ZIP code.

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "Field.BARCODE.docx");
