Report Builder Tutorial

Streaming barcodes into Report Builder is as easy as adding a SSRS Generator Service URL, where a unique URL will be generated after purchase, and then tie it to a specific field in the background image property.

  1. Open Report Builder, create the Data Source Connections, connect to the database and continue to set up the report. Step by step instructions.
  2. Select the field needed to barcode and add a separate column next to that field to position the barcode on the report.
    Create a field for the barcode
  3. In the Properties window, click the down arrow next to Value in the BackgroundImage section to choose the corresponding field to build the expression.
    build the expression for the barcode
    In this example, the first expression is the value needed for this tutorial "=First(Fields!OrderId.Value, "DataSet1")". The bolded text is the actual field name parameter required to complete the URL in the following step.
  4. Take the personalized SSRS Generator Service URL, which was issued after a completed purchase, to populate the expression.
    If currently demoing the solution, the following links can be use for testing purposes as was used in this tutorial:
  5. In the BackgroundImage field, take the URL http://bcgen.com/ssrs/demo-c128.aspx and the field parameter "Fields!OrderId.Value and concatenate them as follows ="http://bcgen.com/ssrs/demo-c128.aspx?D=" & Fields!OrderId.Value where "D=" is the data to encode.

Technical Support Issues

Forum Support for SSRS Barcode Generator
View the release log for the SSRS Native Generator
Barcode Image not Generating:
Open the System Status Site and verify the barcode generators and all operational. The service may be tested by accessing the barcode URL directly. For example, http://bcgen.com/ssrs/demo-c128.aspx should create a default barcode image.

Slow Performance when Generating Multiple Barcodes:
If a large number of barcodes are generated from the same system at the same time, some latency may be noticed. If this is an issue, consider installing the SSRS Generator Script locally or on an Intranet. Performance over multiple clients should not be an issue. A performance test performed in 2017 shows an average response time of 33 ms for 2000 clients requesting barcodes during business hours.
