Competitive Advantages

  • Proven Barcode Engine

    ConnectCode .Net Barcode SDK is an industry-proven Barcode SDK. We have helped many large organizations create barcodes for their manufacturing and distribution plants. We have customers bundling our products with the hardware they shipped. We are heavily involved in helping customers with their ISO tests in barcode scanning. This SDK is a very reliable and robust product based on our team's many years of experience and knowledge in the industry. It is not just any barcode SDK.

  • Unmatched Flexibility

    ConnectCode .Net Barcode SDK is designed from the ground up to be extremely flexible. Most barcode SDKs allow you to create barcodes through a specific Application Programming Interface (API) and may require you to include certain additional Windows Dynamic Link Library (DLL). The vendors customize their APIs for specific purpose or use. For example, they may customize their product for use in Windows Form as a Windows Form Control, as a barcode image SDK, or specifically for use in Reporting Services.

    ConnectCode Barcode SDK provides you with all of the above while at the same time allowing you access to our Barcode Core Engine Layer directly. This means you will not be tied to the graphics API that we use. You will be able to choose your own graphics rendering of your choice. A reference implementation of the SDK Layer is also provided so that you can easily customize or even port this layer.

    Maybe you are using GDI today but plan to migrate to GDI+ and will also like your application to make use of Windows Forms, WPF or even Silverlight. Or perhaps you will like to deploy your application to the Web, add barcodes to your reporting applications or generate barcodes for your Firmware or Mobile applications. You can be assured that our SDK will be able to support you in all the different scenarios.

  • Open Source Code Advantage

    ConnectCode .Net Barcode SDK comes with complete source code in the Unlimited Deployment License. We do not just provide you with application software Dynamic Link Library. We provide you with a compilable project of our complete source code, including the Barcode Core Engine Layer. The benefit of having access to the source code is obvious. It gives you maximum flexibility and allows for easy customizations. Our experience with many of our customers shows that in a real deployment environment, it is sometimes much easier just to make a line code change in the Barcode SDK instead of making the application fit to the Barcode SDK.

    For example, some reporting applications may require specific Security Attributes, or you may not want certain Windows Form API in your application. Perhaps you just need one type of barcode for your firmware and does not need a bloated engine containing other barcodes. Or you may just need the barcode SDK to work in a certain specific way that your application requires. With the source code you can easily achieve that.

    You can start with an Edition of our SDK that does not come with the source code. With that, you can have a peace of mind that in the future, you will be able to upgrade to get the source code and make your customizations.

    Source code also allows third party vetting of the barcodes, ensuring quality and transparency. It is also an important requirement for institutions audits and security. The Source Code also ensures continual operation and maintenance of your custom software no matter what happens.

.Net Framework 4.0 Notes

.Net Framework 4.0 includes and uses CLR 4.0. It does not automatically use its version of the common language runtime to run applications that are built with earlier versions of .NET Framework. This is unlike .Net 2.0-3.5 where the framework uses CLR 2.0 to run applications. Basically, there is no version 3 of the CLR.

Hence, ConnectCode Barcode SDK provides two sets of .Net DLLs for different versions of the .Net Framework as shown below:

For .Net 2.0 to 3.5 please use the DLLs and samples in

  • DLL subdirectory
  • Samples subdirectory
For .Net 4.0 please use the DLLs and samples in

  • DLL4.0 subdirectory
  • Samples4.0 subdirectory
