EAN-128 Data Encoding in KA.Barcode Generator for .NET WinForms

Install EAN-128 Barcode Maker into .NET Project

  1. 1.
  2. 2.
    Add Reference: Add "KeepAutomation.Barcode.Window.dll" to your .NET WinForms project reference.
  3. 3.
    Add to Toolbox: Add BarCodeControl to your .NET Visual Studio toolbox.
Copy the following demo barcode syntax onto your projects to create, insert an EAN-128 barcode image
using KeepAutomation.Barcode.Bean;
BarCode ean128= new BarCode();
ean128.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology. EAN128;
ean128.CodeToEncode = "C#GS1128";
ean128.X = 2;
Dim ean128 As KeepAutomation.Barcode.Bean.BarCode = New KeepAutomation.Barcode.Bean.BarCode

ean128.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology. EAN128
ean128.CodeToEncode = "vbGS1128"
ean128.X = 2
ean128.generateBarcodeToImageFile("C://ean128 _vb.png")

Printing EAN-128 with Numeric Data

An EAN128/GS1-128 barcode symbology can actually encode all ASCII characters including upper-case letter, lower-case letters, and numeric digits. If you want to convert numeric text digits into a EAN-128 image, follow the demo code below to transform numeric text value into an EAN-128 barcode symbol.
ean128.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology.EAN128;
ean128.CodeToEncode = "456666";
ean128.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology. EAN128  
ean128.CodeToEncode = "456666"

Generating EAN-128 with AlphaNumeric Data

KeepAutomation EAN-128 barcode generator for .NET Winforms can encode alphanumeric data. Copy the following demo code to encode valid alphanumeric data for an EAN-128 image. KA.Barcode Generator for .NET WinForms will automatically make the shift according to your encoding data as specification requires.
ean128.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology.EAN128;
ean128.CodeToEncode = "KABarcode4U";
ean128.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology. EAN128  
ean128.CodeToEncode = " KABarcode4U "

EAN128 Data Encoding with Drag & Drop BarcodeControl

  1. 1.
    In "Choose Toolbox Items" form, click button "Browse...", and select KeepAutomation.Barcode.Windows.dll.
  2. 2.
    Now a BarCodeControl is added into your toolbox.
  3. 3.
    Drag and drop the BarCodeControl into the Forms and a Codabar image is generated.
  4. 4.
    Find Symbology" in the property panel and select "EAN128".
  5. 5.
    Then input numeric, alphanumeric or ASCII characters in "CodeToEncode" blanket.
  6. 6.
    Now an EAN128 barcodes with valid characters is successfully created!
