Value and Symbology

The symbology determines how the Barcode information is encoded into the image.

The Barcode exposes a Value property that is used to set the barcode data presented by the control. It determines the way the data will be visualized by using one of the common barcode specifications. To set the desired type of visualization, use the Symbology property of RadBarcode.

The most common symbologies that are supported by Barcode are:

  • EAN13
  • EAN8
  • UPC-A
  • UPC-E
  • Code39
  • QRCode
  • PDF417

For more details on the available Telerik UI for WinUI Barcode symbologies, refer to the articles on supported 1D and 2D Barcode types.

The following example shows how to use the Code39 symbology class.
