Barcode symbologies

The .NET MAUI Barcode Generator control supports a wide range of barcode symbologies.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator QR code.

QR code

Quick response code (QR code) is a popular two-dimensional barcode. It can efficiently store more information in a smaller space than 1D barcodes. Each barcode can store values up to 7089 characters. It is mostly used for URLs, payments, business cards, contact information, and more.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator Data matrix barcode.

Data Matrix

A Data Matrix is two-dimensional barcode. The information can be encoded with text or numeric values. Each barcode can store values up to 2335 characters. Data Matrix barcode will be mostly used for courier parcel, food industry, and more.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator Code128 barcode.

Code 128

Code 128 is a very high-density barcode that supports alphanumeric characters. This barcode is used as the basis for many other barcodes like UCC/EAN, HIBC (health industry barcodes), and the Blood Bank industry.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator UPC-A barcode.


The universal product code (UPC -A) is a numeric symbology used in worldwide retail applications. UPC-A symbols consist of 11 data digits and one check digit. The first digit is a number system digit that normally represents the type of product being identified.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator UPC-E barcode.


Just like UPC-A, the UPC-E symbology supports only numeric characters. It is a zero-suppressed version of UPC-A symbology where it uses only 6 digits of product code and does not use the middle guard.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator EAN-13 barcode.


EAN-13 is based on the UPC-A standard. Like UPC-A, it supports only numeric characters. It encodes the 12 digits of input data with the check digit at its end. The difference between UPC-A and EAN-13 is that the number system used in EAN-13 consists of two digits ranging from 00 to 99, whereas the number system used in UPC-A consists of single digits, from 0 to 9.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator EAN-8 barcode.


EAN-8 is equivalent to the UPC-E for small packaging details. It is shorter than the EAN-13 barcode and longer than UPC-E. It encodes 7 digits of numeric data with the check digit at its end.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator Code 39 barcode.

Code 39

Code 39 is a common barcode type used for various labels such as name badges, inventory, and industrial applications. The symbology of the Code 39-character set consists of barcode symbols representing numbers 0-9, uppercase letters A-Z, and the space character.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator Code 39 Extended barcode.

Code 39 Extended

Code 39 Extended is an extended version of Code 39. Lower characters and special characters are additionally supported.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator Code 93 barcode.

Code 93

Code 93 was designed to complement and improve Code 39. It is used to represent the full ASCII character set by using combinations of two characters. Code 93 can encode uppercase letters, numeric digits, and a handful of special characters.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator Codabar barcode.


Codabar is a discrete numeric symbology that is used in libraries, blood banks, and a variety of other information processing applications. It can encode 0-9 digits, six symbols, and start and stop characters.


The appearance of the .NET MAUI Barcode Generator is easily customizable. Customize barcode color, bar height, bar width, and more.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator bar color support.


Apply a foreground color and background color to a barcode.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator bar height support.

Bar height

Specify the height of the barcode container or it will take the full container height.

.NET MAUI Barcode Generator bar width support.

Bar width

Define the width of the smallest bar line or dot using the module property. This is not set: the size of the smallest bar line is determined depending on the width available.
