BarCode for WinForms Overview

The new barcode engine provides a stand-alone control, C1BarCode, that implements more standard barcode types than the old version. The new C1.Win.Barcode assembly replaces C1BarCode and C1QRCode controls with a single C1BarCode control that uses a different codebase.

In case if you are not ready to upgrade, the old C1.Win.C1Barcode assembly remains included into our toolset. You can check the documentation for the old barcode here.

Unlike barcode fonts, BarCode for WinForms automatically adds any necessary control symbols and checksums to the value being encoded, depending on the encoding being used, to eliminate reader errors. You can use several standard barcodes for adding barcode images to grid cells, to Web pages, or to regular .NET PrintDocument objects. You can also deploy BarCode for WinForms with your applications like any regular assembly. Because it is a royalty-free DLL, you do not have to worry about installing barcode fonts on the client-side and making sure they are royalty free. And BarCode for WinForms is so easy to use – just add the control to your form, set the encoding type, and you are done!
