Aspose.Barcode for .NET

We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Barcode for .NET 18.1. The major development in this release is the support to save the generated barcode image in Vector format. This release also supports the enhanced process of drawing barcode text when the font is specified in the code snippet. Improved working of CodeLocation property has also been incorporated in this release.

Save Barcodes in Vector Image Format

Aspose.BarCode supports the functionality to save the generated barcode image in vector format. Two new values EMF and SVG has been introduced in Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeImageFormat enumeration which can be set before saving barcode image. Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeImageFormat enumeration now contains:

  • Bmp
  • Gif
  • Jpeg
  • Png
  • Tiff
  • TiffInCmyk
  • Emf
  • Svg

How a developer can save barcode image in vector format is quite simple and is demonstrated in the code snippet given below. The code snippet contains comments that make it self explanatory.

// Instantiate BarCodeBuilder object
Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeBuilder builder = new Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeBuilder();

// Set the Code text for the barcode

// Set the symbology type to Code128
builder.EncodeType = Aspose.BarCode.Generation.EncodeTypes.Code128;

//Save the image
builder.Save("code128.svg", Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeImageFormat.Svg);
