I want to generate a PDF-417 barcode in .NET Winforms. I know how to install barcode dll in Visual Studio. But I'm confused that do I need to write some code to make it work? If there is an easy way to make PDF-417 without any programming? If you know that, can you tell me? Thanks a lot!

I suggest you to download the barcode fonts, it is much easier to create barcode. You can use it in text box.

There are two ways to create barcode, one is barcode control, the other is barcode font. I feel barcode control is much better without encountering Access. My barcode control for winform works quite well, but it needs some programming.

I prefer barcode control than fonts. And for programming, it is easy and source code is provided with the barcode control. You just need to decide to use winforms, asp.net or others to create your PDF 417<http://www.businessrefinery.com/products/barcode_net_win/pdf_417.html>.

Hi, Cornell-Austin :

In Bartender, you can just drag barcode object from the toolbar and drop on the design area and select PDF417 barcode.

You can download 30 days trial of Bartender from the web site http://www.seagullscientific.com/aspx/free-bar-code-label-printing-software-download.aspx to give it a try.


Thanks!

I do know a barcode dll which could generate a PDF 417 barcode without any programming. You can generate it through a properties window <http://www.barcodelib.com/net_winforms/barcode_symbologies/pdf417.html>. And if it is not what you want, you can look at some other post in other forum like <http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6122_102-560959/i-need-pdf417-in-asp-net/>

I'm a new programmer for .net barcoding. At the beginning, I googled several third party controls for my project. But most of these control needs C# or VB programming. Lately, I tried a Windows Forms barcode software from a site "barcodelib.com". What I appreciate most is the developer guide, easy and quick to create barcode for windows application. Guess you may try it. :)
