Release Notes

Breaking Changes

The assembly version for many files has changed (all now aligned with the core BRF assembly at version so please update web.config files if you are using the Zen.Barcode.Web/Zen.Barcode.Web.Design assemblies.

What's New

  1. Simple barcode image HTTP handler that uses standard HTTP GET and query string parameters for rendering barcode images.
  2. Support for embedding barcodes in SSRS 2008 reports.

Important SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 Information

Firstly the SSRS CRI (Custom Report Item) is a BETA RELEASE - feel free to install it and try it out - be warned it has not been strenuously tested and it is therefore recommended that it is not installed in a production environment. The SSRS CRI plugin only supports SSRS 2008 it will not work with earlier versions of SSRS. Sorry...

Both x86 and x64 installers are provided for installing the SSRS plugin. The installer must be run on the SSRS server and also on the report designer machine to install the design-time components. Please note that whilst the installer works for me - your experience may vary so please make sure you have backup copies of the following three files before running the installer;

By default the installer will install to the default SSRS instance. If you are running SSRS using a named-instance then you will need to launch Windows Installer with the following parameter;

msiexec /i ZenBarcodeSsrs_x86.msi SSRSINSTANCE=MyInstance

Also note that the installer currently only supports being used once on a given machine. If you wish to install to multiple instances on the same machine you will need to install once and do the amendments for the other instances by hand - alas to get the installer to do it represents a significant amount of work...

Finally after running the installer (or uninstalling for that matter) you will need to restart the SSRS instance.

Really Good. Saved me using an old ActiveX control instead. Would like to see a .Net 4 VS2010 build if possible or even just a .Net (Client Profile) version of the Core dll.

Works great and the code is highly readable.

Works great. Impressed with the developer for the quick turn around of the custom report item and support through the install. Using it with SQL Server 2008 r2. Properties are not exposed through Report Builder 3.0 application but using VS 2008 gives access to everything.

Zen Barcode is a flexible barcode generation framework. From raw image manipulation to an HTTP handler for generating images via web resources, all the way to Sql-Server Reporting Services controls for embedding barcodes in reports.
