Barcode Integration Options for Visual C++ provides several products and options for implementing barcodes in Visual C++ with flexible license agreements to meet a variety of needs including single user licenses and royalty-free developer licenses. The following chart may be used to determine the best product needed:

Integration Options Advantages and Disadvantages Barcode Types
Self-Checking Barcode Fonts
  • The easiest implementation option when the barcode type does not matter and the data is numbers and/or uppercase letters.
  • Data is easily formatted to the barcode font by appending asterisks to the beginning and ending of the data being encoded; no other DLLs or source code is needed.
C++ Header File with Barcode Fonts
  • Easily integrates into the project, without the requirement for additional DLLs.
  • Supports most linear barcode types.
  • C++ source code is included.
  • Methods in the header file and source code calculate the start, stop and check digits and return a character string, that when combined with IDAutomation Barcode Fonts, create a correct barcode.
Barcode ActiveX Control
Native Windows Barcode DLL with Barcode Fonts or the Universal Barcode Font
PDF417 Font and Encoder or the Data Matrix Font and Encoder
Barcode ActiveX Control with Visual Studio .NET IDAutomation's ActiveX controls may be used in Microsoft Visual C++ .NET. The integration process is slightly different than for Visual C++ 6. The sample download provided uses the PDF417 ActiveX control as the primary example, but may easily be converted to use any of the other ActiveX controls. Documented instructions are in the included in the readme3.txt file. The example was created using Visual Studio.NET 2002, but may be opened and converted to Visual Studio.NET 2003 or later versions.
