.NET Barcode EAN-13 Generator Introduction
Top
Generating Barcode EAN-13 in .NET is one of the functions in OnBarcode's .NET Barcode Generators, which supports creating & printing EAN-13 and 30+ other linear & 2D bar codes for C#, VB.NET & ASP.NET applications.
OnBarcode develops several .NET Barcode Generation components for different .NET development environments:

.NET EAN-13 Generator - Barcode EAN-13 Introduction

EAN-13 barcode (originally European Article Number), also known as European Article Number 13, UPC-13, GTIN-13, GS1-13, EAN/UCC-13, 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.

ean13.Y = 60

' Generate EAN-13 and encode barcode to png format
ean13.Format = System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png
ean13.drawBarcode("c:/vbnet-ean13.png")

' Print EAN-13 to vb.net Bitmap object
Dim ean13Bitmap As Bitmap
ean13Bitmap = ean13.drawBarcode()
How to Create & Draw EAN-13 Image in ASP.NET aspx or Html Pages Without ASP.NET Barcode Controller?
Top
  • Under demo package, copy barcode folder and its contents to your IIS, and create a new virtual directory.
  • Restart IIS, navigate to http://YourDomain:Port/barcode/linear.aspx?DATA=012345678912&TYPE=15.
  • To create barcode EAN-13 image in html or aspx pages, you can insert a image tag (img) into your page.
    For example, <img src="http://YourDomain:Port/barcode/linear.aspx?DATA=012345678912&TYPE=15" />
