EAN 13 Barcode Generator

Download here


A lot of people seem to think a barcode is merely a font. One character, one series of bars. This cannot be further from the truth. While barcodes exist that work this way, the most widespread, EAN13, uses a far more complex coding scheme. EAN13 consists of 13 numeric characters (0-9) from which the last is a checksum. (So you can only choose the first 12).

What the generator does

The EAN13 Barcode Generator generates Barcodes from a series of numbers. It can be run with an interface, or from the commandline. (read readme.txt for more info) It is also available as a .NET user control.

About .NET

The EAN13 Barcode Generator is the first EchoStyle app completely written in C#, for the .NET framework. As a consequence, you need the .NET framework version 1.1 (or a compatible CLI interpreter, should that exist) on your pc to run the application.

The .NET Framework version 1.1 can be downloaded for free here.
