Black Box instead of a barcode
I embedded your control in a form and I get a black box instead of a barcode?
Your developing environment selected bad default colors for our control. Simply customize hte control by yourself and set the background color (Backcolor) on white (clWhite). This will solve the problem.
Saving Bitmap files
My primary objective is to take the barcodes that I've generated and save them as .bmp files. I'm using Visual Basic. Can you help me?
Yes, simply use the methods SaveAs, SaveAsBySize or SaveAsBySizeExtended.
If you want to change the bitmap before saving, use the Picture property to retrieve the image.
Crystal Report data binding
We try to use your control with Crystal Report and Visual Basic for usage on a report. We can add the control als OLE object, but we cannot link a property with a database?
You need to make the data binding manually from your Visual Basic program. As far as we know, Crystal Report cannot do this automatically.
