The barcode is represented by parallel lines, geometric patterns or symbols and Aspose.Barcode for Cloud is an suitable API to Generate Barcode images from scratch and to Recognize any existing Barcodes from images. In fact Aspose.Barcode for Cloud API contains all of these characteristics and provides reliable and accurate results both for barcode generation and recognition features using a single API.

Generate a Barcode and Get as an Image Stream - C#

// Instantiate Aspose BarCode Cloud API SDK
BarcodeApi barcodeApi = new BarcodeApi(Common.APP_KEY, Common.APP_SID, Common.BASEPATH);
// Invoke Aspose.BarCode Cloud SDK API to create barcode and save image to a stream
ResponseMessage apiResponse = barcodeApi.GetBarcodeGenerate("Aspose.BarCode", "datamatrix", "PNG", null, null, null, null, null);
 if (apiResponse != null)
        // Download generated barcode from api response
        System.IO.File.WriteAllBytes(Common.OUTFOLDER + "sample-barcode" + "." + format, apiResponse.ResponseStream);
        Console.WriteLine("Generate a Barcode and Get as a Image Stream, Done!");
