Free barcode font for VB.NET?

Hi Experts,

I am looking for the ability to print barcodes in Crystal Reports through VB.NET.  To do that, I need a barcode font (code 128 usually) and its corresponding UFL (DLL for Crystal Reports).

Can anyone provide me with any free options available?  (Not just free demos, please.)

Thanks.

If you don't mind the watermark in the bottom, barcodes can be streamed into the report as an image. http://www.idautomation.com/barcode-components/java/crystal-reports-streaming.html

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you all on this.

Hi nagyistvan,
Good answer.  Ended up using the 128 bar code font from your 2nd link.
I notice your 1st link tries to link to "Free 3 of 9 True Type Font", but it's broken, but your 2nd link covers 3of9 anyway, so no worries.

Hi mlmcc,
Thanks for that.  Although the 3of9 was included in the 2nd link provided by nagyistvan, it would have been hard for you to tell that by just looking at the link name, and I appreciate your efforts.

Hi tncode,
Thanks for trying, but as I understand it, the watermark is because it's a demo, and I had requested no demos in my original post.
