Product Updates:
.NET Barcode Forms Control
Our new updated version of the IDAutomation .NET Barcode Forms Control version 6.6 now includes the RFID Component Encoder & DLL. The IDAutomation RFID Component is a DLL Encoder that provides an easy method to encode data in RFID tags. Using this component, RFID smart labels can be encoded and barcodes can be printed at the same time from custom .NET software applications. The IDAutomation RFID Label Software uses these components together for this purpose.
