You could use a bar code font however fonts are difficult to use for
bar coding and they also produce very poor quality bar codes that are
difficult to read in many cases.

A better way to do things is to use a bar code DLL that produces a
high resolution graphic image of the bar code. The best bar code
libraries are available from TAL Technologies. For more information,
visit the following web page:

You can also download a demo VB.NET sample application for the above
bar code DLLs from the following URL:

Try this in a textbox:
Text: *0101*
Font: barcode font
Font size: as big as a good resolution.
Capture form and print then test barcode.
Adjust textbox width.

Try the list option.
