Barcode Image Creating Library for .NET projects - EAN13 Information
EAN-13 is primarily used in supermarkets to identify product at point of sales. The numbers encoded in EAN-13 barcodes are product identification numbers. EAN-13 is composed of 4 parts including 2 or 3 digits for country code, 4 or 5 digits for manufacturer code, 5 digits for product code and 1 digit for checksum. EAN-13 has supplemental barcodes EAN-13+2 and EAN-13+5 which are generally used for periodicals, books, etc.
.NET EAN-13 component for Winforms encodes:
  • Digital characters: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Linear Barcode Drawing Component for .NET - EAN-13 Creation


Before you generate EAN-13 in Windows Forms applications, you need install:
  • Windows XP/Windows Vista/Windows 7, etc
  • .NET Framework 2.0/3.0/4.0 and advanced version
  • Visual Studio 2005/2008/2010
  • .NET EAN-13 Component for WinForms

EAN 13-Digit Barcode Creation in .NET Forms Applications using .NET Barcode Control

  1. Create a new project in you Visual Studio;
  2. Copy Avapose.linearbarcode.winforms.dll to your Winforms project folder;
    (Do not copy the dll to .NET bin directory, Visual Studio will do so.
  3. Add Winforms Control to your Visual Studio Toolbox;
  4. Find Component LinearWinControl in the Toolbox and drag LinearWinControl component onto your form;
  5. Go to Property tab and change Barcode Type to "EAN-13 ";
  6. Debug it and then an EAN-13 barcode occurs.

Generate and print EAN13 Barcode image in C# and VB.NET using .NET Barcode API

  1. Create a new project in you Visual Studio;
  2. Copy Avapose.linearbarcode.winforms.dll to the project folder of your Windows Forms Application;
    (The DLL will be copied to the bin directory automatically)
  3. Add Avapose.linearbarcode.winforms.dll to your Winforms project reference;
  4. Copy those following samples accordingly and debug them, you will find EAN-13 generated in you Winforms projects.

C# code

using Avapose.linearbarcode;
Linear Barcode = new Linear();
Barcode.LinearBarcode = Ean13;
Barcode.BarcodeData = "123456789012";
barcode.BarHeight_Y = 60;
barcode.BarWidth_X = 2;
barcode.Rotation = Avapose.linearbarcode.Rotation.Degree90;
barcode.Resolution = 96;
barcode.CheckSumInText = true;
barcode.DisplayText = true;
barcode.TextFont = new Font("Times New Roman", 9, FontStyle.Regular);
barcode.TextColor = Color.Black;
barcode.TextDistance = 4;
barcode.MeasurementUnit = Avapose.linearbarcode.MeasurementUnit.Pixel;
barcode.ImageFormat = System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Gif;

VB code

Dim barcode As Avapose.linearbarcode.Linear = New Avapose.linearbarcode.Linear()
barcode.LinearBarcode = Avapose.linearbarcode.LinearBarcode.Ean13
barcode.BarcodeData = "123456789012"
barcode.ApplyTilde = True
barcode.MeasurementUnit = Avapose.linearbarcode.MeasurementUnit.Pixel
barcode.BarWidth_X = 2
barcode.BarHeight_Y = 60
barcode.Resolution = 96
barcode.Rotation = Avapose.linearbarcode.Rotation.Degree90
barcode.BackgroundColor = Color.Aquamarine
barcode.ImageFormat = System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png;
