This component adds barcode streaming generation capability to Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) to ASP, ASP.NET web pages and other applications plus development environments that can display a dynamic URL, including reporting software such as Microsoft SharePoint , Crystal Reports and FileMaker .


Features of the ASP Barcode Server Component for IIS include:

  • Easy-to-Install - Simply copy three (3) files to the virtual directory where barcodes are needed.
  • Easy to Use - Server-side scripting, JavaScript or dynamic HTML may be used to include barcodes in a web page with the <IMG> tag. Parameters in the IMG tag determine what is encoded in the barcode.
  • Fast and Efficient - No temporary files are created on the server, the resulting IIS barcode image is sent directly to the browser as a base-256 binary stream which results in greater performance. Run-time write access to the server is not required.
  • Compatible with all Web Browsers - Because an image is generated on the server, it is compatible with all web browsers that can view GIF or JPEG images, including early versions of Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Netscape.
  • Flexible - Several properties may be set with parameters in the URL such as the symbology type, orientation, color, barcode height and X dimension.
  • Complete GS1-128 Support (aka: UCC/EAN 128) - Easy methods are included to add application identifiers into Code 128 for GS1-128 barcodes that also format to the correct human-readable text.
  • Tilde Functions - Tilde functionality allows easy encoding of returns, tabs and other functions such as GS and RS functions between fields in a single barcode symbol.
  • Selectable Orientation - Angles of 0, 90, 180 or 270 are supported.
  • Royalty-Free - Developer Licenses for this product are perpetual and royalty-free.
  • Safe & Secure - This is a 100% managed code product created in Visual C# .NET with strong name signatures and signed DLLs.
  • Source Code - Source code to the streaming project DLL is available with the purchase of any Developer License and a signed Source Code Agreement.
