Hi Guys,

I'm trying to implement print barcode label for my MVC application and in order to do it I installed the nuget package "Neodynamic.WebControls.BarcodeProfessional" , after I installed the package I implemented this C# code:

 //Create a Barcode Professional object
            Neodynamic.WebControls.BarcodeProfessional.BarcodeProfessional bcp = new Neodynamic.WebControls.BarcodeProfessional.BarcodeProfessional();
            //Set the barcode symbology to Code 128
            bcp.Symbology = Neodynamic.WebControls.BarcodeProfessional.Symbology.Code128;
            //Set the value to encode
            bcp.Code = "1234567890";
            bcp.CodeFormatPattern = DateTime.Today.ToString();
            //Barcode dimensions settings
            bcp.BarHeight = 1.0f;
            bcp.BarWidth = 0.01f;
            float dpi = 300.0f;
            //Target size in inches
            System.Drawing.SizeF targetArea = new System.Drawing.SizeF(1.0f, 0.5f);
            //Get the barcode image fitting the target area
            System.Drawing.Image imgBarcode = bcp.GetBarcodeImage(dpi, targetArea);
            //Save it on disk in PNG format
            imgBarcode.Save(@"D:\temp\barcode128.png", System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);

Open in new window

My question:
How can I Print the barcode directly to the printer instead of saving to png file and then print? I'm wondering if there is a way to do it.
I was trying to do it, but there is no print function in this DLL reference.

I would like to know if there is better way to print barcode labels.

thanks ,
