Hello thank you for your help but i already know that.
What i need is to create a barcode for a product that doesnt have yet a barcode and save it in a Database,and be able to retrieve it with all his infos

all you want to do is save the digits and/or characters of the barcode, not the graphics itself. When the scanner reads a barcode it sends the info to the pc. All your program has to do is look it up in the database. The barcode digits/characters itself is the key field in the database so that searches are very easy. I assume there is other data in the database as well that go along with the barcode -- for example the barcode could represent product codes and used to look up the product price/description in the database.

To create the record in the database table your program needs to display a screen in which the user enters the barcode value (or scan it with a hand scanner) and product information. That is a very simple application to write.
