Bar Code Blitz
Shown at PDC05: Yes
Lorin and Lawrence set out on a project to make bar codes appear on web pages. Techniques demonstrated include use of the new Generic Handler template in Visual Studio 2005 and the use of GDI+ to dynamically render a GIF image. The code for the bar code solution shown in the video supports two common standards: 3 of 9 for text, and 2 of 5 codes for numeric.
