Output barcode screenshot (UPC-E symbology)

UPC-E barcode sample

UPC-E barcode. This symbology is zero-suppression version of UPC-A. It is intended to be used on packaging which would be otherwise too small to use one of the other versions. The code is smaller because it drops out zeros which would otherwise occur in a symbol. Used with consumer products in U.S. UPC-E symbology allows only numeric values to be encoded.

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)
