Hi,

I am converting a string to Barcode. Here is my function :

 public void GenerateBarCode(string codeword, string FareCardID, string ClientNm)
        {

            string Code = codeword; // "12345678"; //Request["code"].ToString();
            int w = Code.Length * 40;
            Bitmap oBitmap = new Bitmap(w, 100);
            Graphics oGraphics = Graphics.FromImage(oBitmap);
            Font oFont = new Font("IDAutomationHC39M", 18);
            PointF oPoint = new PointF(2f, 2f);
            SolidBrush oBrushWrite = new SolidBrush(Color.Black);
            SolidBrush oBrush = new SolidBrush(Color.White);
            oGraphics.FillRectangle(oBrush, 0, 0, w, 100);
            oGraphics.DrawString("*" + Code + "*", oFont, oBrushWrite, oPoint);

         
            oBitmap.Save(Server.MapPath("~/Images/Code5.Jpeg"),        System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Jpeg);

            GetImage(FareCardID, ClientNm);

        }


This is working fine when I am debugging inside visual studio 2008 on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit machine
but when I build and configure it on IIS 7.5 it is giving following error Generic GDI+ error.

It is giving throwing error on the following line

oGraphics.DrawString("*" + Code + "*", oFont, oBrushWrite, oPoint);

Please help

Thanks

The obvious question would be, "Is the font installed on the server?"

We resolved it. The problem was with permissions for image folder.
