How to Generate Barcodes in RDLC Report
Barcode Generator for RDLC is a control DLL that supports the encoding and printing of barcode in client report definition (.rdlc) files with the inherited barcode generation capability from the control. .NET 2.0/3.0/4.0 and above are supported.
This .NET control library is written 100% by managed code in C#. It includes strong named and digitally signed assemblies with comprehensive barcode generation capability designed for RDLC development. Programmers could easily add it into .NET IDE with Xcopy deployment, and load it to the report with "drag-and-drop" technique.
The generated barcode images could be customized easily. The size of the symbol as well as the entire image could be redefined with pixel, cm, or inch. The rotating and aligning of the symbol could be changed. In addition, the human-readable text below symbol is adjustable.
