Please copy the sample code as follow to generator a PDF417 barcode.




private static PDF417 CreateBarcode()
        {
            PDF417 barcode = new PDF417();// create a Data Matrix barcode
            barcode.Data = "123456789";// encode data into Data Matrix barcode    
            barcode.X = 5.0F;// set module size
            barcode.RightMargin = barcode.LeftMargin = barcode.TopMargin = barcode.BottomMargin = barcode.X; // the minimum value for each margin should be equal to X
            barcode.Resolution = 96;// set barcode printing resolution   
            barcode.Rotate = Rotate.Rotate0;// set rotation

            barcode.BarcodeWidth = 200;
            barcode.AutoResize = true;

            //convert barcode to a bitmap and save it to image file
            //Bitmap bmp = barcode.ToImage();
            //bmp.Save(@"C:\barcode.bmp");

            return barcode;

How to Create C# PDF 417 Barcode on Image



In order to create a PDF 417 bar code on images, you need to integrate .NET barcode generator component DLL into your C#.NET imaging project first. Below is the C# sample coding to draw PDF-417 at user-defined area on a png image. Please feel free to change the barcode location as you wish or shift image format to gif, jpeg or bmp.





private static void AddBarcodeToImage(PDF417 barcode)
        {
            REImage image = new REImage(inputDirectory + "Sample.png");
            barcode.DrawBarcode(image, 150F, 150F);
            image.Save(ImageType.PNG, outputDirectory + "Sample_Barcode.png");
        }
