We have introduced the support for rendering Barcode in PDF as beta in 4.1 and was removed in next version 4.2, as it was unstable. We have made old version of PDF as legacy and improving the new version of PDF. So we will include this feature again in new PDF but it will be available only after 6 months.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

6 months is now up.

Does Syncfusion have a new version with Bar Code creation?

Thank you, that's good news.

But any plans on writing the 2D barcodes,
like PDF417, Datamatrix or QF8?

Thanks again,

Hi Howard,

Currently we don't have any immediate plan to implement this feature in the nearer future. However, we do have plans for implementing it in the future.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
