Create or Generate QR Code in Asp.Net using C# with complete source codes

  C# Projects

In this program we have to use “Zxing.Net” library which will help to generate QR code and read data from that image based on our requirements.

To use “Zxing.Net” library in our website or web application first create new web application and add Zxing.Net library for that right click on your application à select Manage Nuget Packages à Go to Browse Tab à Search for Zxing.Net à From the list select ZxingNet and install it.

ASP.NET Source Code:-

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <title>Generate and Read QR Code in Asp.Net</title>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <asp:TextBox ID="txtCode" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
            <asp:Button ID="btnGenerate" runat="server" Text="Generate QR Code" OnClick="btnGenerate_Click" />
            <hr />
            <asp:Image ID="imgQRCode" Width="100px" Height="100px" runat="server" Visible="false" />
            <br />
            <br />
            <asp:Button ID="btnRead" Text="Read QR Image" runat="server" OnClick="btnRead_Click" />
            <br />
            <br />
            <asp:Label ID="lblQRCode" runat="server"></asp:Label>
