The ISBN (International Standard Book Number) barcode is based on EAN-13 which encodes 12 data digits and a check digit.

To use the 10 digit ISBN number you must use 978 as EAN (European Article Number) for Bookland. The following illustrates creating an ISBN with an EAN value.

Isbn barcode = new Isbn("978-1-23-456789-7");
barcode.Draw(pngFilePath, 300, ImageFormat.Png);        
Dim barcode As Isbn = New Isbn("978-1-23-456789-7")
barcode.Draw(pngFilePath, 300, ImageFormat.Png)

ISBN Supplement 2

The two digit supplement barcode adds a two digit barcode after the main ISBN barcode.

IsbnSupplement2 barcode = new IsbnSupplement2("978-1-23-456789-7","12");
barcode.Draw(pngFilePath, 300, ImageFormat.Png);        
Dim barcode As IsbnSupplement2 = New IsbnSupplement2("978-1-23-456789-7","12")
barcode.Draw(pngFilePath, 300, ImageFormat.Png)

ISBN Supplement 5

The five digit supplement barcode adds a five digit barcode after the main ISBN barcode.

IsbnSupplement5 barcode = new IsbnSupplement5("978-1-23-456789-7","12345");
barcode.Draw(pngFilePath, 300, ImageFormat.Png);       
Dim barcode As IsbnSupplement5 = New IsbnSupplement5("978-1-23-456789-7","12345")
barcode.Draw(pngFilePath, 300, ImageFormat.Png)
