dBarcode SL components for Windows Phone 7

A range of class DLLs designed for creating barcodes in Windows Phone 7 projects using SilverLight and C# or VB.

dBarcode.SL Components for Windows Phone 7 are components for SilverLight that allow barcode images to be created within the developer’s own Windows Phone 7 application. A barcode image may be displayed on screen or a “pattern string” used by the developer to draw the bars. See our dBarcode WP Windows Phone App (which is based on the dBarcode SL Dual component) on Windows Phone Marketplace.

Displaying a barcode on a page

A barcode may be displayed on a page by placing a empty Image on the page at the position the barcode is required.Then the component is provided with the relevant data, and the Barcode(rec) method called using the a rectangle the size of the empty Image as the only parameter. A bitmap image is returned and may be used to as the Source for the Image.

For example:

private void DoBarcode() C#
    int left,top,height,width;
    // set these to specify position of barcode
    Rect rec;
    rec=new Rect(left, top,width,height
    WriteableBitmap bm=wp.Barcode(rec);
    if (bm==null)
    else {

All components allow the barcode image to be created either by filling the size of the rectangle specified, or by specifying a size in pixels for the smallest element.
