New Update: GS1 DataBar Products

By January 2010, GS1 requires that all POS systems support GS1 Databar (formerly RSS). This is the only symbology that will be approved for use by GS1.org to encode GTIN-14 numbers that do not start with the number zero (0).

GS1 Databar Windows Forms Control
Creates high-quality, dynamic barcode generation in the .NET Framework 1.1 or greater development environment. The component easily integrates into Visual Studio.NET, C# and VB. The control may be loaded on a form or used as a DLL. Several methods are available to print and generate images.

GS1 Databar Image Generator
Allows easy generation of quality barcodes for pasting into other Windows applications and generation of high-quality graphic image files. Easy-to-use features include settings and properties retention, command line options, one-click copy to clipboard ability for quick paste into other applications, and auto generated image file names based on the data of the barcode at save time.

Both products include the following GS1 DataBar types: Omnidirectional, Stacked, Truncated, Stacked Omnidirectional, Limited, Expanded, Expanded Stacked Omnidirectional and Composite Components.

New Update: Data Matrix Products
