Note

The complete sample project is available in the following repository: https://github.com/DevExpress-Examples/Reporting_how-to-add-a-bar-code-to-a-report-e167.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Drawing.Printing;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraPrinting.BarCode;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...
public XRBarCode CreateIndustrial2of5BarCode(string BarCodeText) {
    // Create a bar code control.
    XRBarCode barCode = new XRBarCode();

    // Set the bar code's type to Industrial 2 of 5.
    barCode.Symbology = new Industrial2of5Generator();

    // Adjust the main properties of the bar code.
    barCode.Text = BarCodeText;
    barCode.Width = 400;
    barCode.Height = 100;

    // Adjust the properties specific to the bar code type.
    ((Industrial2of5Generator)barCode.Symbology).CalcCheckSum = false;
    ((Industrial2of5Generator)barCode.Symbology).WideNarrowRatio = 3;

    return barCode;
}

To add the XRBarCode to a report band, handle the report’s BeforePrint event.

using System.Drawing.Printing;
// ...

private void XtraReport1_BeforePrint(object sender, PrintEventArgs e) {
    this.Detail.Controls.Add(CreateIndustrial2of5BarCode("012345678"));
}
