About C#.NET Linear Planet Barcode
Planet, a numeric-only linear barcode, is short for Postal Alpha Numeric Encoding Technique barcode. So, this barcode is used by postal offices to track and arrange the mailed letters and parcels.
Planet can encode 12 or 14 digits (including check digit, which can be automatically computed by our C# barcode generator for .NET) and all those information is encoded in half- and full-height bar. Thus, similar to Code 2 of 5 and Postnet barcode, the spaces in Planet just work as separators instead of information-carriers.
Planet Barcode Generation Using C#.NET Class
  1. Integrate either "Barcodelib.Barcode.ASP.NET.dll" or "BarcodeLib.Barcode.WinForms.dll" into your project reference.
  2. Add the same C#.NET barcode generator dll to your Toolbox item.
  3. Then, generate Planet barcode with following sample C# codes.
     BarcodeLib.Barcode.Linear planet = new BarcodeLib.Barcode.Linear();
planet.Type = BarcodeType.PLANET;
planet.Data = "12345678901";

planet.AddCheckSum = true;
planet.BarWidth = 2;
planet.LeftMargin = 14;
planet.RightMargin = 14;

span class="rem">// You could also adjust other settings of Planet, like text font, image size, background color etc.

// Save Planet barcode image into your system

span class="rem">// Save Planet barcode & output to byte array
byte[] barcodeInBytes = planet.drawBarcodeAsBytes();

// Save Planet barcode to Graphics object
Graphics graphics = ...;

// Save Planet barcode and output to HttpResponse object
HttpResponse response = ...;

// Save created Planet barcode to Stream object
Stream stream = ...;
Above Free Planet sample codes are built in Visual C# 2005
