using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Drawing.Printing;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraPrinting.BarCode;
using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...
public XRBarCode CreateITF14BarCode(string BarCodeText) {
    // Create a bar code control.
    XRBarCode barCode = new XRBarCode();

    // Set the barcode's type to ITF-14.  
    barCode.Symbology = new ITF14Generator();

    // Adjust the bar code's main properties.
    barCode.Text = BarCodeText;
    barCode.Width = 350;
    barCode.Height = 100;

    // Adjust the properties specific to the bar code type.
    ((ITF14Generator)barCode.Symbology).CalcCheckSum = false;
    ((ITF14Generator)barCode.Symbology).WideNarrowRatio = 2.5f;

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

private void XtraReport1_BeforePrint(object sender, PrintEventArgs e) {
    this.Detail.Controls.Add(CreateITF14BarCode("012345678"));
}
