dLSoft  barcode & labelling software     

Additional sample code for developers

ALL dLSoft developers products include sample source code to illustrate the use of the component in its target environment. To obtain the samples just download the complete testware product from the Download site.

Some additional sample programs listed below are provided complete with source code to illustrate use of dLSoft barcode components in users' programs. In most browsers any sample may be downloaded by clicking on the relevant hyperlink. Internet Explorer 5/6 users should RIGHT click on the link and choose "Save Target As" from the menu displayed.

Note that most of these samples requires the presence of other dLSoft components, such as fonts or DLLs, for operation. The programs will operate with unlicensed versions of our components (ie. components downloaded from our download site), but will produce defaced or scrambled barcodes in the absence of the correct licence files.

Additional files are provided from time to time on our support download site:
