How to Print Barcodes from Item Record using an Advanced PDF/HTML Template

Since the Standard/Custom Item Fields on Item Label cannot be printed in an Advanced PDF/HTML Template, the user can create a Saved Search that pulls the desired results and create an Advanced PDF/HTML Template to print the Custom/standard fields. Below is an example where a user wishes to print Barcodes for serial/lot number and print the display names as well.

Create saved search:

  • Navigate to Lists > Search > Saved Searches > New.
  • Click Item.
  • Enter Search Title. (Ex. Item Label - Barcodes)
  • Under Criteria > Standard > Filter >
  • Add:  
  • Type: Inventory
  • Serial/Lot Number: is not empty
  • Click on Results tab.
  • Add or Remove fields depending on the need.
  • (eg. Date, Serial/Lot Number, Name, Display Name)
  • Save

Create the Advanced PDF/HTML Template:

  • Navigate to Lists > Search > Saved Searches > Edit the Search Created Above
  • Click on New Template
  • On the top right corner > Click on Source Code to switch to Code Editor
  • Delete EVERYTHING from the Editor
  • Use the following code instead: 

<?xml version="1.0"?><!DOCTYPE pdf PUBLIC "-//" "report-1.1.dtd">
<#if .locale == "ru_RU">
<link name="verdana" type="font" subtype="opentype" src="${nsfont.verdana}" src-bold="${nsfont.verdana_bold}" bytes="2" />
<style type="text/css">table {

td {

<body padding="0.5in 0.5in 0.5in 0.5in" size="Letter">
<#if results?size != 0><#list results as result>

<table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width: 500px;"><tr>
<td><b>Serial number</b></td>
<td><b>Display name</b></td>
<tr><#if result.serialnumber?length != 0>
<td><barcode codetype="code128" showtext="true" value="${result.serialnumber}"/></td></#if>
