Encode data into ITF-14 using VB.NET

Sample Code for encoding data into ITF-14 via VB.NET

Dim barcode As Linear = New Linear

barcode.Type = BarcodeType.ITF14

barcode.Data = "1234567890123"

barcode.N = 3.0F

barcode.BearerBarHori = 2

barcode.BearerBarVert = 2

barcode.UOM = UnitOfMeasure.PIXEL

barcode.X = 2

barcode.Y = 70

barcode.LeftMargin = 2

barcode.RightMargin = 2

barcode.TopMargin = 2

barcode.BottomMargin = 2

barcode.Resolution = 100

barcode.Rotate = Rotate.Rotate0

ITF-14 Barcode Symbol Components

The above vb.net code encodes the data string "1234567890123" into the itf14 symbol, and may generate an itf14 barcode symbol image as the following:
