ISSN C#.NET Generator FAQ

1. What types of projects is supported

Console application, Class library, as well as Control library could be integrated with ISSN C#.NET Generator easily. All of these projects may generate quality ISSN barcode images once ISSN generator installed.

Linear csharpISSN = new Linear();

Then, set linear barcode symbology type to be ISSN, shown as follow:

csharpISSN.Symbology = Symbology.ISSN;

barcode.Symbology = Symbology.ISSN;

barcode.Code = "123123123";

5. How to Encrypt Data Characters in Supplement barcode
