RadBarcode doesn't support printing out of the box. However, it offers exporting to image functionality.

This article demonstrates how to get benefit from the RadRichTextEditor's printing behavior and achieve printing RadBarcode.



Once you have the exported bar code images, you can insert them in RadRichTextEditor and then print the RadDocument:

string fileName1 = @"..\..\img1.png";
string fileName2 = @"..\..\img2.png";
Image img = this.radBarcode1.ExportToImage();
img.Save(fileName1, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);
Image img2 = this.radBarcode2.ExportToImage();
img2.Save(fileName2, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png);

RadRichTextEditor radRichTextEditor1 = new RadRichTextEditor();
Stream stream = File.Open(fileName1, FileMode.Open);
string extension = Path.GetExtension(fileName1);
radRichTextEditor1.InsertImage(stream, extension);

Stream stream2 = File.Open(fileName2, FileMode.Open);
extension = Path.GetExtension(fileName2);
radRichTextEditor1.InsertImage(stream2, extension);

Dim fileName1 As String = "..\..\img1.png"
Dim fileName2 As String = "..\..\img2.png"
Dim img As Image = Me.RadBarcode1.ExportToImage()
img.Save(fileName1, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png)
Dim img2 As Image = Me.RadBarcode2.ExportToImage()
img2.Save(fileName2, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Png)

Dim radRichTextEditor1 As RadRichTextEditor = New RadRichTextEditor()
Dim stream As Stream = File.Open(fileName1, FileMode.Open)
Dim extension As String = Path.GetExtension(fileName1)
radRichTextEditor1.InsertImage(stream, extension)

Dim stream2 As Stream = File.Open(fileName2, FileMode.Open)
extension = Path.GetExtension(fileName2)
radRichTextEditor1.InsertImage(stream2, extension)
