Output barcode screenshot (CodaBar symbology)

CodaBar barcode sample

Codabar barcode (aka Ames Code/USD-4/NW-7/2 of 7 Code). Codabar symbology allows only symbols from this string ‘0123456789-$:/.+’ to be encoded. This symbology used for example in libraries and blood banks.

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)
