Installation Tutorial

The ASPX Barcode Generator is a server-side script that adds barcode generation capability to any ASPX compatible website or hosting provider. After the script file is copied to the host, barcode images may be generated simply by calling the ASPX file. This script also enables barcodes to be easily added to reporting applications including FileMaker, Crystal Reports and SSRS Report Builder.

  1. Unzip the downloaded product file and copy the needed files to an ASPX-enabled webserver. Each file contains the name of the supported barcode symbology. When unsure which barcode file to use, consider idautomation-code128.aspx that allows Code 128 ASPX barcode generation.
  2. Open the file in a browser window and verify that a default barcode appears. If it does not, verify that the files are installed in the proper folder on the server and confirm that ASPX script processing is active in the folder where the file resides.
  3. Integrate the resulting URL into your web application as a dynamic IMG tag and add the D= parameter for the data that is being encoded.
  4. Refer to the barcode script parameters to modify the barcode to include additional parameters. For example, the following parameters encode the text "123456", enable the optional check digit in Code 39 and set the bar height to 30 pixels:

    http://www.bcgen.com/aspxscripts/idautomation-code39.aspx?D=123456&CC=T&BH=30

Parameters

Unless specific requirements dictate otherwise, consider using default values for all properties.

Purpose Parameter Default Description
Apply Tilde PT F When True in Code 128 with the Auto character set, the format ~??? may be used to specify the ASCII code of the character to be encoded and several other ApplyTilde Options are enabled including encoding of GS1-128 AIs.

*Valid in idautomation-code128.aspx only
Bar Height BH 40 The barcode height in pixels.
Check Character CC T* Automatically adds the check digit to the barcode when equal to "T".

*The default in Code-39 is F. To create a LOGMARS barcode, this must be set to True.

Check Character in Text CT T Automatically adds the check digit that is encoded in the barcode to the human readable text that is displayed when equal to "T".
Data Encoded D 123456789012 The data that is to be encoded in the barcode.
Narrow to Wide Ratio N 2 The narrow-to-wide ratio of symbologies that only contain narrow and wide bars such as Code 39, Interleaved 2 of 5 and MSI. Valid values are 2 and 3.
Orientation O 0 The orientation of the barcode. Valid values are 0, 90, 180 and 270.
ShowText ST T If set to F, the human-readable text interpretation will not be displayed with the barcode.
XDimension in pixels X 1 The number of pixels to define the overall barcode width. Default = 1 which is 1/96 of an inch and about 12 MILS.
Font Size FS 12 The font size used for human readable text.

*Only values of 10 and 12 are applicable. Any other values must be implemented manually by displaying a text field below the barcode.

Only commonly-used parameters are included in the ASPX Barcode Generator Script files to ensure quick and efficient barcode generation. If additional properties or symbologies are needed, consider the Online Barcode Generator Service or implementation of one of IDAutomation's compiled barcode products that incorporate streaming capability such as the Streaming Barcode Server for IIS and the Java Servlet, which is part of the Java Barcode Package.
