 ' IMPORTANT NOTE: you need to have .NET Framework 1.10 installed to use BarCode SDK from Visual Basic

 Set bc = CreateObject("Bytescout.BarCode.Barcode")

 ' display information about Code39 symbology
 MsgBox "Encoding '012345' using Code39 symbology" & vbCrLf & bc.GetValueRestrictions(0)  ' 0 = Code39 symbology

 ' set symbology type
 bc.Symbology = 1 ' 1 = Code39

 ' set value to encode
 bc.Value = "012345"

 MsgBox "Saving Code39 barcode to 'Code39.png'"

 bc.SaveImage "Code39.png" ' change to "c:\Code39.png" if you can not locate the file. The default directory is the folder where Project1.exe is located

 MsgBox "Encoding '012345' using Aztec symbology"

 ' set symbology type
 bc.Symbology = 17 ' 17 = Aztec

 bc.Value = "012345"

 ' display information about Aztec symbology
 MsgBox "Encoding '012345' using Aztec  symbology" & vbCrLf & bc.GetValueRestrictions(17) ' 17 = Code39 symbology
