Draw GS1-128 Linear Barcode on Image in C#.NET



In daily-life applications, you may need to draw or add GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode on some image files for certain purpose. Then this C#.NET GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode generator add-on will be a great choice. Using the APIs that RasterEdge .NET GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode creator add-on offers, C# developers can accurately draw a standard GS1-128 barcode on target image files (supported image formats are JPEG, BMP, GIF and PNG).


In the following example, we will take GS1-128 barcode generation on a PNG image file as a case to illustrate.




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");
        }





Create GS1-128 on Document in C#.NET



Currently, GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode generator add-on for .NET, C#.NET has been widely used in document management and file tracking field. Different from other GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode creator SDKs on the market, RasterEdge C#.NET barcode creator add-on allows developers to select one page from source document file (supported document files are PDF, Word, TIFF, Excel and PPTX) and insert a GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode into selected document page with accurate location.

Sample C# Code to Customize GS1-128 Generation



With the following C# programming code, you can easily draw a fully-customized GS1-128 (UCC/EAN-128) barcode on target PNG image file in C#.NET application.




// 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.EAN128;// select barcode type
barcode.Data = "(01)123456789";// set barcode data 

// EAN-128 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;
