ASCII Chart & ISO 1252 Latin-1 Char Set

Barcode Information Tutorials & FAQs at BarcodeFAQ.com

The following table is a mapping of characters used in the standard ASCII and ISO Latin-1 1252 character set. The decimal “Dec” column may be used to locate the number for ApplyTilde and ProcessTilde functions in IDAutomation Barcode Fonts, Components and Label Printing Software.

The characters from ASCII 0 to 31 are commonly referred to as function characters because they perform functions instead of a printed character. Normally, these characters are not visible unless an application is used such as IDAutomation’s Barcode Scanner ASCII String Decoder. Common function codes are 9 which creates a tab and 13 which performs a return. The ^ in the Char column refers to the control key. For example, pressing CTRL-G sends ASCII 7 to the PC and creates a bell sound.

ASCII characters 32 to 128 are common among most languages and character sets, while characters above ASCII 127 are different for almost every character set. In the USA, Windows systems use the Latin-1 character set by default while the Macintosh uses the Roman character set. A graphical view of characters 0-127 is available at the Symbol ASCII Text Font site.
