ActiveX control with SSRS

Postby nathanb on Wed Oct 14, 2009 4:25 pm

I looked through the help files and searched the knowledge base but I have not found any information regarding how to use the Barcode ActiveX Control with SQL Server Reporting Services. How would I go about embedding the control into a report using the report designer?

As far as we know, you can't use ActiveX control directly in SSRS. You can wrap Barcode ActiveX control into a Report Control with .Net language, if you are interested in writing a custom report control. Then you embed the wrapper control in SSRS.

A much simpler way is to use font products. See the links below:

I was afraid that was the answer. Thanks for the information.
