VB.NET Barcode Image Creating - Unicode Overview
If you want to encode Non-English characters, like Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, etc, into a 2d barcode, Unicode is might be considered to use. It is commonly used in barcode applications for information conversion of languages all over the world.
Our VB.NET Barcode Generator SDK suite package supports three commonly used 2d (matrix) barcode symbologies that can be used to encode Unicode characters, namely Data Matrix, PDF 417 and QR Code.
In general, these 2d barcodes can encode single-byte strings only, not available for Unicode two-byte characters. So, our VB.NET Barcode Library adopts a conversion technique to achieve this. That is Base64 Conversion Methods.
How to Add & Encode Unicode into Barcode in VB.NET
VB.NET Barcode Unicode Encoding Requirement
Please make sure you have installed the following programs on your computer.
Due to the fact that we use Base64 Conversion method to convert and encode Unicode string into 2d barcodes, the decoding process requires you use Base64 encoding method converstly in your application get your original Unicode string. Please see the following VB.NET class code.
Dim base64SingleBytes AsByte() = Convert.FromBase64String(data)
Dim UnicodeFromBarcode AsString = System.Text.Encoding.Unicode.GetString(base64SingleBytes)
