Create Barcode Using jQuery

In This Topic, We are going to learn to create a Barcode Using jQuery.

As in the previous article, we learn to Create a Custom Countdown Timer Using JavaScript/jQuery.

This article explains how to create a Barcode Using jQuery.
Here, We add our custom code for the generated barcode. By using selected ‘Barcode Type’.
we can also download it as an image.
Let’s start It.

Step 1: Create Html And CSS.

Create a simple Html page using the below code.
Note: don’t forget to add jquery CDNor you can use and add your local latest jquery.min.js and jquery-barcode.js.

<script src=""></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="jquery-barcode.js"></script>    
  <h2 style="text-align: center;"> Generator Barcode </h2>
  <div class="frmContact">
        <div class="field-row">
            <label>Fill The Code</label> <span class="info"></span>
            <br /> 
            <input type="text" id="barcodeValue" value="19851106" class="input_box">
        <div class="field-row">
            <div class="contact-row column-right">
                <label>Barcode Type</label> 
                <span class="info"></span>
                <br /> 
                <select name="btype" class="select_box">
                <option value="ean8">EAN 8 (Only For Numbers)</option>
        <option value="ean13">EAN 13(Only For Numbers)</option>
        <option value="upc">UPC(Only For Numbers)</option>
        <option value="int25">interleaved 2 of 5 (Only For Numbers)</option>

        <option value="msi">MSI(Only For Numbers)</option>
        <option value="datamatrix">Data Matrix</option>
            <div class="contact-row cvv-box">

                <select name="renderer" class="select_box">
        <option value="css">CSS</option>
        <option value="bmp">BMP (not usable in IE)</option>
        <option value="canvas">Canvas (not usable in IE)</option>
            <input type="button" onclick="generateBarcode();" value="Generate the barcode" class="btnAction">
    <div id="barcodeTarget" class="barcodeTarget"></div>
    <canvas id="canvasTarget" width="150" height="150"></canvas>


.frmContact {
  border-top: #c9e0dc 2px solid;
  background: #d2d5d4;
  padding: 25px;
  width: 270px;
  text-align: center;
  margin: 0 auto;

.frmContact .field-row {
  margin-bottom: 20px;

.frmContact div label {
  margin: 5px 0px 0px 5px;
  color: #49615d;

.input_box {
  padding: 10px;
  border: #a5d2ca 1px solid;
  border-radius: 4px;
  background-color: #FFF;
  width: 100%;
  margin-top: 5px;

.select_box {
  padding: 10px;
  border: #a5d2ca 1px solid;
  border-radius: 4px;
  background-color: #FFF;
  margin-top: 5px;

select.select_box {
  height: 37px;
  margin-right: 10px;
.info {
  font-size: .8em;
  color: #FF6600;
  letter-spacing: 2px;
  padding-left: 5px;

.btnAction {
  background-color: #82a9a2;
  padding: 10px 40px;
  color: #FFF;
  border: #739690 1px solid;
  border-radius: 4px;
.column-right {
  margin-right: 6px;

.contact-row {
  display: inline-block;

.cvv-input {
  width: 60px;
  padding: 20px !important;
    margin: 0 auto;
  display: block !important;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding-top: 20px;

Step: 2 for Add jQuery for the BarCode.

This step is for writing down a jQuery code to generate a barcode using jQuery library functions.
On form submit ‘GenerateBarcode’ function is called to create a your barcode.
Check the below script code
you can add jquery on the same HTML page or you can use your separate js file.
Below code for jQuery.

function generateBarcode(){
     var value = $("#barcodeValue").val();
     var btype = $('select[name="btype"]').val();
     var renderer = $('select[name="renderer"]').val();
     var settings = {
       bgColor: '#FFFFFF',
       color: '#000000',
       barWidth: '1',
       barHeight: '50',
       moduleSize: '5',
       posX: '10',
       posY: '20',
       addQuietZone: '1'
     if (renderer == 'canvas'){
       $("#canvasTarget").show().barcode(value, btype, settings);
     } else {
       $("#barcodeTarget").html("").show().barcode(value, btype, settings);
   function showConfig1D(){
     $('.config .barcode1D').show();
     $('.config .barcode2D').hide();
   function showConfig2D(){
     $('.config .barcode1D').hide();
     $('.config .barcode2D').show();
   function clearCanvas(){
     var canvas = $('#canvasTarget').get(0);
     var ctx = canvas.getContext('2d');
     ctx.lineWidth = 1;
     ctx.lineCap = 'butt';
     ctx.fillStyle = '#FFFFFF';
     ctx.strokeStyle  = '#000000';
     ctx.clearRect (0, 0, canvas.width, canvas.height);
     ctx.strokeRect (0, 0, canvas.width, canvas.height);
       if ($(this).attr('id') == 'datamatrix') showConfig2D(); else showConfig1D();
       if ($(this).attr('id') == 'canvas') $('#miscCanvas').show(); else $('#miscCanvas').hide();

Now, Run your HTML file and generate the barcode of your choice.

Here’s the Output.

Hope you guys, Here You find something useful full. 😉
