.NET Standard 2.0 Integration

The following code is provided to assist with implementation. Please refer to the Barcode Generation and Xamarin examples provided in the download package for actual working app examples. The included .NET Standard 2.0 source code and assembly supports .NET Core 2.0, .NET Framework, Mono, Xamarin, Unity, and Universal Windows Platform.

Availability:

  • The .NET Standard Barcode Generator is sold as a separate component that primarily generates images and does not require the use of barcode fonts, however, basic barcode fonts are provided.
  • This product is also included as a font encoder in all Developer License Packages of the Data Matrix Font and Encoder

Generate text for IDAutomation2D font or Unicode Image on a label

C# Code Example:
DataMatrix obj = new DataMatrix();
Label lblBarcode = new Label();
(if you want to use the IDAutomation2D font)
string textfont = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Version, OutputTypes.IDA2DFont);
lblBarcode.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("IDAutomation2D", 8.25F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((byte)(0)));
or (if you want to use Courier New as Unicode Image)
string textfont = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, OutputTypes.IDAMonospaceFont);
lblBarcode.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Courier New", 6F, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, ((byte)(0)));
lblBarcode.Text = textfont;
VB.NET Code Example: 
Dim obj As New DataMatrix()
Dim lblBarcode as Label = new Label()
(if you want to use the IDAutomation2D font)
Dim textfont as string = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, OutputTypes.IDA2DFont)
lblBarcode.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("IDAutomation2D", 8.25, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, 0)
or (if you want to use Courier New as Unicode Image)
Dim textfont as string = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, OutputTypes.IDAMonospaceFont)
lblBarcode.Font = new System.Drawing.Font("Courier New", 6, System.Drawing.FontStyle.Regular, System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Point, 0)
lblBarcode.Text = textfont

Generate SVG or the HTML output on a web browser control

C# Code Example:
DataMatrix obj = new DataMatrix();
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecSVG, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize);
or
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecHTML, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize);
WebBrowser webBrowser = new WebBrowser();
webBrowser.DocumentText = vectorimage;
VB.NET Code Example: 
Dim obj As New DataMatrix()
Dim vectorimage as string = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecSVG, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize)
or
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecHTML, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize)
Dim webBrowser as WebBrowser = new WebBrowser()
webBrowser.DocumentText = vectorimage

Generate SVG, EPS or the HTML output to save as a file

C# Code Example:
DataMatrix obj = new DataMatrix();
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecSVG, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize);
File.WriteAllText("DataMatrix.SVG", vectorimage);
or
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecEPS, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize);
File.WriteAllText("DataMatrix.EPS", vectorimage);
or
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecHTML, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize);
File.WriteAllText("DataMatrix.HTML", vectorimage);
VB.NET Code Example: 
Dim obj As New DataMatrix()
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecSVG, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize)
File.WriteAllText("DataMatrix.SVG", vectorimage)
or
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecEPS, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize)
File.WriteAllText("DataMatrix.EPS", vectorimage)
or
string vectorimage = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, VectorTypes.VecHTML, "", QuietZone, ModuleSize)
File.WriteAllText("DataMatrix.HTML", vectorimage)

Generate BMP Image as byte array | BMP output on a picture box control 

C# Code Example:
DataMatrix obj = new DataMatrix();
byte[] bmpstream = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, bestMask, QuietZone, ModuleSize);
PictureBox picImage = new PictureBox();
picImage.AutoSize = true;
using (MemoryStream mStream = new MemoryStream(bmpstream))
{
Image img1 = Image.FromStream(mStream);
picImage.Image = img1;
}
VB.NET Code Example: 
Dim obj As New DataMatrix()
Dim bmpstream() as Byte = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, QuietZone, ModuleSize)
Dim picImage as PictureBox = new PictureBox()
picImage.AutoSize = true
Dim mStream As MemoryStream = New MemoryStream(bmpstream)
Dim img1 As Image = Image.FromStream(mStream)
picImage.Image = img1

BMP output to save as file

C# Code Example:
DataMatrix obj = new DataMatrix();
byte[] bmpstream = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, QuietZone, ModuleSize);
File.WriteAllBytes("DataMatrix.BMP", bmpstream);
VB.NET Code Example: 
Dim obj As New DataMatrix()
Dim bmpstream() as Byte = obj.EncodeDM(dataToEncode, applyTilde, encodingMode, Format, QuietZone, ModuleSize)
File.WriteAllBytes("DataMatrix.BMP", bmpstream)

Common Parameters

  • DataToEncode - The data that is encoded in the barcode.
  • OutType - (only for font output) Indicates the type of encoded text output for the barcode font (IDAutomation font or a Unicode Monospace).
  • VectorType - (only for vector output) Indicates the type of vector image for output encoded text (SVG, EPS or HTML).
  • ApplyTilde - Enables processing of the tilde character for purposes of encoding ASCII functions & GS1 application identifiers.
  • EncodingMode - Various modes used to Data represented in the symbol may be encoded by one of these types: Base256, C40, TEXT or ASCII).
  • Format - Represents the various sizes of the symbol.
  • QuietZone - Defines the size of a blank zone around the code.
  • ModuleSize - Defines the size of each module in pixels. The ModuleSize parameter can control the size of BMP images, however, a multiplicative factor is added to avoid a strange "blur" effect that occurs with low values with SVG and HTML images.
