In Nvivo Coding stripes are colored bars that show you the codes that code the content you are viewing.
This feature also allows you to share your coding with others as a PDF file which is very useful in many scenarios such as:
1) At the beginning of coding process to have your coding reviewed by others.
2) Ability to reach people who does not have access to Nvivo.
3) Allowing visually oriented people to make an initial coding review and comparison visually.
4) Ability to see whether coders identified new codes that would be significant for the analysis and worth to add in pre-determined codes list before proceeding further in coding process.
I hope this helps you all.
