How to stop blurring of barcode images

I have a custom DLL that has a function that takes a string and returns a raster image(PNG) of a Code 128 barcode. That works fine, no problem. The barcode rendered does *not* use a font, it physically renders rectangles with precise pixel widths to generate the barcode. This is necessary because the laser expects a discrete stop of a "bar" and beginning of a "space". -- Image properties->Size is set to "Original Size" So I look at the report viewer, and I see barcodes. Cool. HOWEVER ... when I zoom in at about 400% I start to see blurring at the edges of the bars. It also prints this way. This is unacceptable. So then, within report viewer, (this is the same report!) I export the report to PDF. No blurring, not at 500%, not at 2000% not at any zoom level. In the PDF, there is a sharp, precise, quantum drop from black to white with *no* blurring whatsoever. On pixel is 0x000000 and the next is 0xFFFFFF. The PDF also prints this way. This is correct behavior. I cannot have the user export the report to PDF before printing it. This is a production shop, and I can't have folks taking twice as long to do a task. MY QUESTION: How do I instruct, how do I force SSRS to simply render the image as I have presented it and not tinker with it? This is a bit annoying. If my function returns a 200x50 image, SSRS may trust that that is what is t

Rs render to PDF is not displaying barcode font

Thanks in advance

barcode badly displayed while rendering a report in PDF


Dear all,

I have a famous barcode issue while rendering a report in PDF: the barcode is badly displayed...  To display the barcode on the report I'm using the "Code128" font and this font is of course installed on both server and client sides.

While displaying the report, the barcode is fine, while extracting the report under Excel, the barcode is fine too, while exporting the repot in an Image, the barcode is fine too... but while exporting the report in PDF the barcode is wrong... I've tried manually or by programing using the render function... in both case the barcode is bad. I've also tried to play with the font size without any good result...

Also I saw that the PDF file created is in version 1.3 while today exists the version 1.5 (ie: Office 2007 is using PDF 1.5). Is it plan to update the PDF rendering in report viewer from 1.3 to 1.5? Maybe it could fix this issue...

Note: I'm running SQL Server 2008 R2 64b build 10.50.1600.1, Report Viewer 9.0.30729 under MS Windows 2003 Server 64b.

Someone have a solution to this issue?

Thank you for any help,

Capturing USB Barcode Scanner Return values



We are using USB barcode scanner to scan material barcode labels. These lables are from our vendors.

We does not have control over the label generation. We are using USB barcode scanner for scanning purpose. We want to capture USB barcode scanner output. Normally the scanner returns output in the place holder in which the cursor present.

But we do not put writable text box for the cursor. Instead of write allowable text box we want to put locked or readonly text box in the screen and want to capture scanner value.

How can we do?

Assume that our barcode scanner does not support serial ports.

Barcode Not Displaying in PDF Export


Hi all,

  I have created an SSRS report in VS 2008 that has a barcode on it.  The report and barcode both view fine when looking at it via Report Viewer.  It exports into Excel fine, and the barcode displays fine.  However, when you export it to to PDF, the barcode does not show up any more.  If I change the font to something other than barcode (which is 3 of 9), the value shows up fine.

  So my question is, why will my barcode not show up when exporting the report to PDF, but shows up everywhere else?

Need Help in Windows forms Using Barcode..

I would like to create a Windows Application Project for a Commercial shop.

Please give an idea for my following requirements,

While generating Bill :

    If the user scan the Barcode of the particular Product,

    Then the particular information should have to be displayed on the Screen.

For eg:
     If the user scans the Food product ..Then the food product's information should have to come on the First row (in Gridview)..

     after then if he scans Dress items...Then the Dress item's information should have to come on the second row.. 

Please give an idea..I have been working in Web applications for the past 3 months but never worked in windows forms with barcode..



Barcode scanning - serialport DataReceviedHandler problem


Your help is appreciated, I need some guidance..

I'm using the example found here with a Microscan MS-3 reader, that has ports for Host & Network with a PLC.


The problem arises when I scan a barcode, it seems to chop it into two pieces. In debug I can see it fire the DataReceviedHandler twice? Why is that with one scan?

Here is my code which is very similar to the MS version linked above except I added the bytes read into the console which is cinsistent to where it seems to do a newline. So if my barcode is say 1PL861T9AE, the scan gets split into 1PL861T9 one one line then AE on the next.
