Generate Barcode

Prepare data to show barcode in RDLC by generating barcode image, also it is saving generated file to local folder as .png.

Image img = barcode.Encode(BarcodeLib.TYPE.CODE128, sitem.detailsid, Color.Black, Color.Transparent, 635, 105);
using (MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream())
    img.Save(ms, ImageFormat.Png);
    _objData.Add(new vmProductDetails
        detailsid = sitem.detailsid,
        sizename = sitem.sizename,
        offerprice = sitem.offerprice,
        codeimage = ms.ToArray()

    //Save Generated Image
    string tempfolder = @"C:\barcode\";
    if (!Directory.Exists(tempfolder))
    string filepath = tempfolder + sitem.detailsid + ".png";
    img.Save(filepath, ImageFormat.Png);

    //Display Generated Image
    barcodeImagePanel.BackgroundImageLayout = ImageLayout.Center;
    var _img = resizeImage(img, new Size(235, 39));
    barcodeImagePanel.BackgroundImage = _img;

Finally build and run the application, click generate button to get below generated barcode print layout.
