Use control to make a barcode label

Would like to ask if the barcode control can be used to make a custom barcode label.  I am making an application that will need to print barcode labels and find it hard to design the labels.  Do I need to have a report designer for this or just make custom form designs?

Appreciate any suggestions.

What I mean is I want to be able to make a label design within the running application,similar to an end user report designer.  The labels are to be printed to custom labels using a Zebra thermal printer.  Below is a sample of the label design.

I want the user to have the capability to create/edit the label design and then have it dynamically printed within the application based on user input.  For example, the above QR code label is supposed to be serialized, meaning based on a start and last serial number the user inputs the barcode value and text varies.

Incidentally, although this should be posted in the WPF forums, can this be done using the Report Designer control? If so, kindly suggest ways to do this.

Appreciate the help, thanks!

Hi San, 

We can create a report with barcode report item in ReportDesigner. Please refer the below help documentation link to add Barcode as a custom report item.

Hi Sowmiya,

Thanks for this.  However I cannot seem to make it work.  I followed everything in the guide and the project built successfully but I still cannot see the barcode report item.  I am very new to WPF and I don't know if there is something I might have overlooked.  But basically what I did was just to add the custom barcode report item dll into the sample report designer project from the guide.

Also related to this why can't I see the SfBarcode control in my toolbox?  Is this related to my version of the assemblies?

Hi San, 

From the latest product version, when install the NuGet package Syncfusion.SfBarcode.WPF it automatically shows in Toolbox. Otherwise if you need to show the SfBarcode control in Toolbox for other version older than this, please refer the Syncfusion.SfBarcode.WPF  to the respective application. 

Please try this and let us know if you have any concerns on this.
