.NET Windows Forms EAN-8 Barcode Overview
EAN-8 is a 1D barcode derived from EAN-13. It is also known as EAN-8+5, EAN-8+2, EAN8, EAN8+5, EAN13+2, UPC-8, GTIN-8, GS1-8, and EAN/UCC-8.
An EAN-8 is comprised of several parts (Left and Right Quiet Zone, Normal Guard Bar Pattern, Data Characters, Centre Guard Bar Pattern and Check Digit). A Number System is included in Data Characters. The Number System is composed of two or three digits, which is essentially a country code. Each country has a numbering authority which assigns manufacturer codes to companies within its jurisdiction.
EAN-8 is used on small packages where an EAN-13 barcode seems to be too large, like on pencils, cigarettes and chewing gum.
