The tutorial describes how to generate barcodes using Code 128 and Code 39 fonts and .NET Font Encoder Assembly & DLL in Visual Studio .NET. Keep in mind that the .NET Assembly is only an encoder, you must also install Barcode Fonts: http://www.idautomation.com/barcode-f...

If the data is encoded but you do not see the barcode font, verify that the barcode font is installed and that you are properly setting the font for your version of Visual Studio.

In the video example the Code 39 font is used. The .NET Assembly is also compatible with Visual Studio 2012. See Example:

This video describes how to use the .NET Assembly encoder to format data. Barcode Fonts must also be installed.

*******NOTE*******: Some users report that the barcode does not display or does not apply to the data when the application is run. Verify the name of the font. If the font name set at TextBox3.Font = New System.Drawing.Font("--font name of the idautomation barcode installed--", 18, FontStyle.Regular) is not the font file installed, then it will not display. Ensure that the font installed and the font set is the same name. For example, if you have installed the demo Code 39 font IDAutomationSHC39M, then set the font to TextBox3.Font = New System.Drawing.Font("IDAutomationSHC38M", 18, FontStyle.Regular)

If the error "Only true type fonts are supported. This is not a True type font" occurs, review this solution:

The .NET Font Encoder Assembly & DLL is a font encoder that formats text for IDAutomation's barcode fonts in Microsoft .NET Framework. This tool supports linear barcode fonts, postal barcode fonts and the Universal Barcode Fonts by IDAutomation.

This tool is excellent for creating barcodes from fonts in .NET applications. The dll is only an encoder and will only work if the appropriate barcode font is installed.

1. Download the .NET Font Assembly & DLL: http://downloads.idautomation.com/IDA...

2. Purchase license for IDAutomation Font: http://www.idautomation.com/barcode-f...
