Produce Barcodes in VB6

Hi Experts,

Im trying to find some code to be able to produce code128 barcodes. I know people sell activex controls for this but I would rather see the code or I would be happy with a free activex. Any Ideas please.

Many Thanks
Lee

I would suggest finding a Code 128 Font.  I've done that with a Code 39 barcode font I use.   In my quick Google search, I couldn't find any free Code 128 fonts / ActiveX controls but you might have better luck with a font than ActiveX control.  Here's some links that I did find (all results from Google but not verified for usefullness):

Here's a description of the Code 128 format that you could even potentially use to build your own font/control.
