Generate EAN-13 Barcode on Image in C#



In this section, we will offer you a C# programming example which aims to demonstrate how to generate a standard EAN-13 barcode on raster image file PNG. Using RasterEdge .NET EAN-13 barcode creator add-on, you can also generate EAN-13 barcode on other image file formats, like JPEG, BMP and GIF.




private static void AddBarcodeToImage(Linear barcode)
        {
            REImage image = new REImage(inputDirectory + "Sample.png");
            barcode.DrawBarcode(image, 150F, 150F);
            image.Save(ImageType.PNG, outputDirectory + "Sample_Barcode.png");
        }





Generate EAN-13 on Document Page in C#



Besides generating EAN-13 barcode on image files, RasterEdge C#.NET EAN-13 barcode creator can also generate & add EAN-13 barcode on document files, like PDF, TIFF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Using the sample C# codes below, you can not only insert EAN-13 barcode on target document page, but also own the ability to adjust the position where created EAN-13 barcode will be located.

C# Code to Generate Customized EAN-13 on Document Image



The C# code demo below contains all parameters that C# developers can use to create a customized EAN-13 barcode on target image file. For example, you can adjust the size, color, font style and generating orientation of created EAN-13 barcode by C# code.




// create REImage on which you want to draw the barcode
REImage reImage = new REImage("c:/Sample.png");

Linear barcode = new Linear();// create a barcode
barcode.Type = BarcodeType.EAN13;// select barcode type
barcode.Data = "012345678901";// set barcode data 

// EAN-13 barcode size related
barcode.X = 1.0F;// set x
barcode.Y = 60.0F;// set y
barcode.BarcodeHeight = 60;
barcode.BarcodeWidth = 0;
barcode.BottomMargin = 0;
barcode.LeftMargin = 0;
barcode.RightMargin = 0;
barcode.BarAlignment = AlignmentHori.Left;
barcode.Resolution = 96;// set resolution
barcode.Rotate = Rotate.Rotate0;// set rotation
barcode.AddCheckSum = false;
barcode.UOM = RasterEdge.Imaging.Barcode.Creator.UnitOfMeasure.PIXEL;

// EAN-13 colors
barcode.BackColor = System.Drawing.Color.White;
barcode.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;

// EAN-13 font style
barcode.TextFont = new Font("Arial", 9f, FontStyle.Regular);
barcode.TextColor = System.Drawing.Color.Black;
barcode.TextMargin = 6;
barcode.ShowText = true;

// EAN-13 special
// barcode.SupData = "";
// barcode.SupHeight = 0.8f;
// barcode.SupSpace = 15;

barcode.DrawBarcode(reImage, 0, 0);// draw barcode on REImage with location x and y

reImage.Save(ImageType.PNG, @"c:/barcode.png");
