High Resolution Graphics

The TALtech Barcode ActiveX Control produces high resolution Windows Metafile (vector) graphics that are completely device independent, fully scalable, and will print to the highest resolution of any printer supported by Windows. No knowledge of the printer resolution is required in advance.

The graphics that are produced are extremely precise and require minimal system resources, and all barcodes produced with the TALtech Barcode ActiveX Control will display and print lightning fast.

Save Barcodes in All Major Graphic File Formats

In addition to being able to render all barcodes directly to an output device, the TAL Barcode ActiveX control also provides a "SaveBarCode" method that allows you to save barcode graphic images to a disk file as a vector style Windows Metafile (WMF) graphic.

"TALtech Bar Code ActiveX Control has all the features necessary to easily add professional-quality bar codes to Windows applications. A well designed product that produces professional bar codes that print quickly and scan accurately. TALtech provides example code within VB projects, and you also get sample VBA applications in Access, Excel and Word. I would like to see more OCX publishers follow TALtech's example."
