Android EAN-13 Barcode Generator Introduction

Android EAN-13 barcode API is an EAN-13 generator for Android apps, designed for creating EAN-13 barcode on Android platform.

  • Android EAN-13 SDK is entirely developed for Android platform
  • Android EAN-13 generator is completely built in Android 1.5 SDK
  • Developer Licenses for this Android EAN-13 library are royalty-free and perpetual

EAN-13 barcode (originally European Article Number) is a barcoding standard which is a superset of the original 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC) system developed in the United States. The EAN-13 barcode is defined by the standards organisation GS1. The numbers encoded in EAN-13 bar codes are product identification numbers which are called Japanese Article Number (JAN) in Japan. All the numbers encoded in UPC and EAN barcodes are known as Global Trade Item Numbers (GTIN), and they can be encoded in other GS1 barcodes.

OnBarcode provides several EAN-13 Generator library, SDK, application and software, including C# EAN-13, .NET EAN-13, Java EAN-13, VB.NET EAN-13, ASP.NET EAN-13, EAN-13 Generator.

 

EAN-13 Valid Data Scope

Android Barcode EAN-13 supports:

  • 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

 

How to generate EAN 13 barcodes in your Android application?

Generating barcode EAN-13 in Java Class example

	EAN13 barcode = new EAN13();
	
	/*
	   EAN 13 Valid data char set:
	        0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 (Digits)
	
	   EAN 13 Valid data length: 12 digits only, excluding the last checksum digit
	*/
	barcode.setData("012345678901");
	
	// for EAN13 with supplement data (2 or 5 digits)
	/*
	barcode.setSupData("12");
	// supplement bar height vs bar height ratio
	barcode.setSupHeight(0.8f);
	// space between barcode and supplement barcode (in pixel)
	barcode.setSupSpace(15);
	*/
	
	// Unit of Measure, pixel, cm, or inch
	barcode.setUom(IBarcode.UOM_PIXEL);
	// barcode bar module width (X) in pixel
	barcode.setX(1f);
	// barcode bar module height (Y) in pixel
	barcode.setY(45f);
	
	// barcode image margins
	barcode.setLeftMargin(10f);
	barcode.setRightMargin(10f);
	barcode.setTopMargin(10f);
	barcode.setBottomMargin(10f);
	
	// barcode image resolution in dpi
	barcode.setResolution(72);
	
	// disply barcode encoding data below the barcode
	barcode.setShowText(true);
	// barcode encoding data font style
	barcode.setTextFont(new AndroidFont("Arial", Typeface.NORMAL, 10));
	// space between barcode and barcode encoding data
	barcode.setTextMargin(6);
	barcode.setTextColor(AndroidColor.black);
	
	// barcode bar color and background color in Android device
	barcode.setForeColor(AndroidColor.black);
	barcode.setBackColor(AndroidColor.white);
	
	/*
	specify your barcode drawing area
	    */
	    RectF bounds = new RectF(30, 30, 0, 0);
	barcode.drawBarcode(canvas, bounds);
