Output barcode screenshot (Bookland symbology)

Bookland barcode sample

Bookland barcode. This symbology is mostly the same as EAN-13 symbology, but used exclusively with books. First three digits of Bookland symbology are always “978” the rest of code is a ISBN number without embedded hyphens and ISBN check digit.

Important: you can also use BarCode Windows Forms or Web ImageControl instead. To use the Windows Formscontrol in Visual Studio please open Toolbox and open “Bytescout Software” tab and drag-n-drop “BarCode” control into your WinForms or ASP.NET application (in design mode).
