Hi, Thomas.

There is a simple example for how to insert a barcode control to Excel worksheet using C#.

First, you need create a barcode user control as below:

public partial class BarcodeControl : UserControl
    public Barcode _barcode;

    public BarcodeControl()
        _barcode = new Barcode();

    protected override void OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e)
        _barcode.Data = "123456";
        _barcode.BarType = BarCodeType.Code128;
        _barcode.Width = this.Width;
        _barcode.Height = this.Height;

        Bitmap bmp = _barcode.CreateBarcode();           

        e.Graphics.DrawImage(bmp, 0, 0);

Then, add this barcode control into worksheet.

//get current showing sheet
Worksheet worksheet = Globals.Factory.GetVstoObject(Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.ActiveWorkbook.ActiveSheet);

//get current range
Excel.Range range = (Excel.Range)Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection;

//add barcode control to current range
Microsoft.Office.Tools.Excel.ControlSitedynamicControl = worksheet.Controls.AddControl(barControl, range, "barcode");

Hope the C# code can be helpful.
