Default Printing Barcodes

I would like to be able to print a barcode in VB.net, I have been printing text by passing the text to a file and then the file to the printer, but this obviously isn't going to work for barcodes.

Help

We use Active Reports combined with the TAL Barcode software. This is in VB6 not VB.Net, but they are both ActiveX, so you should be able to do something similar using interop.

Essentially a barcode is just a different font, when you type what in a normal font would give you a '1' you get the relevant barcode. However there are many styles of barcode so you may be better going for a pre-built solution as suggested above.
