.NET DataBar Generator - Barcode Introduction
Top
This complete .NET GS1 DataBar Generator Library actually adopts the advances bar coding features of .NET Barcode Generator Suite, which supports all GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS) family barcodes for C#, VB.NET & ASP.NET applications.

The GS1 DataBar (formerly RSS) family consists of the following versions:
  • GS1 DataBar-14
  • GS1 DataBar-14 Truncated
  • GS1 DataBar-14 Stacked
  • GS1 DataBar-14 Stacked Omnidirectional
  • GS1 DataBar Limited (formerly RSS Limited)
  • GS1 DataBar Expanded (formerly RSS Expanded)
  • GS1 DataBar Expanded Stacked (formerly RSS Expanded Stacked)
We also design some other .NET Barcode Generator Controls for different .NET development environments and all those controls support GS1 DataBar barcode:
How to Generate GS1 DataBar (RSS) in Visual Studio C# or VB.NET Class?
Top
Generate barcode GS1 DataBar in C# Class example (C# GS1 DataBar Generator Complete Demo Source Code):
   Linear barcode = new Linear();
   barcode.Type =BarcodeType.RSS14;
   barcode.Data = "01987654321098";
   barcode.drawBarcode("C://gs1_databar.png");
Generate barcode GS1 DataBar in VB.NET Class example (VB.NET GS1 DataBar Generator Complete Demo Source Code):
   Dim barcode As New Linear()
   barcode.Type = BarcodeType.RSS14
   barcode.Data = "01987654321098"
   barcode.drawBarcode("C://gs1_databar.png")
How to Create & Paint GS1 DataBar 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= 01234567890123&TYPE=42.

    Note that, GS1 DataBar-14 (RSS14) barcode type value is 42. To encode other RSS family barcodes, please set type value accordingly:

    GS1 DataBar-14 Stacked (RSS14STACKED) = 43

    GS1 DataBar-14 Stacked Omnidirectional (RSS14STACKEDOMNI) = 44

    GS1 DataBar Limited (RSSLIMITED) = 45

    GS1 DataBar Expanded (RSSEXPANDED) = 46

    GS1 DataBar Expanded Stacked (RSSEXPANDEDSTACKED) = 47
  • To create barcode 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= 01234567890123&TYPE=42" />.
How to Make & Encode GS1 DataBar to Image File (GIF, JPEG, PNG, BMP)?
Top
Encode barcode GS1 DataBar into image file using C# Class:
   Linear barcode = new Linear();
   barcode.Type =BarcodeType.RSS14;
   barcode.Data = "01123456789012";
   barcode.X = 2;
   barcode.Y = 80;

   // Generate GS1 DataBar and encode barcode to jpeg format
   barcode.Format = System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg;
   barcode.drawBarcode("C://gs1_databar.jpeg");

   // Print GS1 DataBar to C# Bitmap object
   Bitmap barcodeBitmap = barcode.drawBarcode();
Encode barcode GS1 DataBar into image file using VB.NET Class:
   Dim barcode As New Linear()
   barcode.Type = BarcodeType.RSS14
   barcode.Data = "01123456789012"
   barcode.X = 2
   barcode.Y = 80

   ' Generate GS1 DataBar and encode barcode to gif format
   barcode.Format = System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Gif
   barcode.drawBarcode("C://gs1_databar.gif")

   ' Print GS1 DataBar to VB.NET Bitmap object
   Dim barcodeBitmap As Bitmap = barcode.drawBarcode()
In Visual Studio C# and VB.NET, How to Draw GS1 DataBar Barcode to the Memory?
Top
Using C#, please call one of the following methods to draw barcode in the memory.
   public void drawBarcode(Graphics graphics);

public void drawBarcode(string filename);

public Bitmap drawBarcode();

public void drawBarcode(Stream fileStream);
Using VB.NET, please call one of the following methods to draw barcode in the memory.
