More information about the Image Generator

Purchase the Barcode Image Generator:

Barcode Image Generator User Manual:

NOTE: This option is not available in the Mac version.

Open the Image Generator and change any properties as necessary. The image created will use the properties that were last set and only the data encoded in the barcode will change. After the properties are set, close the Image Generator. From the Windows command prompt or DOS command line, the following parameters are available to create image files:
[ DataToEncode ] [ Optional file path, file name.ImageType ]
[ LoadValues+XML Settings File+DataToEncode+File Path, File Name.ImageType ]
(the LoadValues option is only available in Version 2010 or later)

The following example generates a JPEG file in the current directory:
"Image Generator.exe" 123456789012
The result would be an image file named 123456789012.jpeg

An example that generates a 1 bit monochrome bitmap file in a specified directory with a specified file name would contain the following in a batch file:
"Image Generator.exe" 123456789012 C:\Windows\Temp\TestFile.1bmp
The following types of files may be created: jpeg, gif, tiff, png, bmp, wmf or 1bmp (1 bit per pixel bitmap)

In Version 2010 and greater (Windows Version), additional parameters may be specified to load values from a saved xml file.

For example:
"Image Generator.exe" Loadvalues+C:\Temp\FileName.xml+123456789012+C:\Temp\TestFile.gif
