This structure contains linear (1D) barcode information for reading or writing 1D barcodes.

Member Description
uStructSize Size of BARCODE1D structure in bytes. Use the sizeof operator to calculate this value.
bOutShowText Indicates whether the barcode string will be shown or not. This member is valid for the LBarcode::Write function. Possible values are:
  Value Meaning
  TRUE The barcode string will be shown.
  FALSE The barcode string will not be shown.

 

nDirection Flag that indicates the orientation and direction for reading barcodes. This member is valid for the LBarcode::Read. You can combine values when appropriate, by using a bitwise OR ( | ). Possible values are :
  Value Meaning
  BARCODE_DIR_LEFT_TO_RIGHT [0x001] To read from left to right across the bitmap.
  BARCODE_DIR_RIGHT_TO_LEFT [0x002] To read from right to left across the bitmap.
  BARCODE_DIR_TOP_TO_BOTTOM [0x004] To read from top to bottom across the bitmap.
  BARCODE_DIR_BOTTOM_TO_TOP [0x008] To read from bottom to top across the bitmap.
  BARCODE_DIR_SKEW [0x010] To read in a skewed or diagonal direction.
  BARCODE_DIR_HORIZONTAL [0x020] To read horizontally (left to right and right to left).
  BARCODE_DIR_VERTICAL [0x040] To read vertically (top to bottom and bottom to top).
  BARCODE_DIR_DIAGONAL [0x080] To read in a diagonal or skewed direction.
bErrorCheck Enables or disables the use of an error check digit while reading or writing a barcode.
nGranularity Number of scanned lines per column to skip when reading a barcode. 9 is the default value. This means that each tenth line will be scanned when looking for a barcode. Scanning every line will slow the search process while skipping too many lines may skip over the barcode. This member is valid for the LBarcode::Read function.
nMinLength The minimum length of a barcode string when searching for a non-fixed-length barcode. A value of 0 sets the engine to the default length of 4 characters. The minimum number of characters is 0 and the maximum 63. This member is valid for the LBarcode::Read function. A value of 1 sets the engine to read all barcodes.
nMaxLength The maximum length of a barcode string when searching for a non-fixed-length barcode. A value of 0 means the length can be any value up to the maximum allowed (63). The minimum value is 0 and the maximum is 63. The default value is 0.
nWhiteLines The number of lines of white space above and below the barcode symbol.
nXModule Specifies the size of the smallest bar to write, in thousandths of an inch (0.001), if BARCODE_1D_USE_XMOD flag is set. This flag is available in LEADTOOLS version 16.

 

uStd1DFlags Flags that indicate the MSI barcode type, Code11 barcode type, and reading speed. You can use a bitwise OR (|) to specify one flag from each group.

  BARCODE_1D_CODE128_ENCODE_C [0x600] Use only Code 128 C table to encode the barcode data. it encodes only even number of digits. If the barcode data have values not included in the standard Code 128 C table or have an odd number of digits ERROR_BARCODE_STRING will be returned.
  The position of the barcode's text for writing a standard linear (1D) barcode (for writing only):
  Value Meaning
  BARCODE_1D_TEXT_BOTTOM [0x800] Writes the barcode's text at the bottom of the barcode. This option is ignored for the following standard 1D barcode types; BARCODE_1D_EAN_13, BARCODE_1D_EAN_8, BARCODE_1D_UPC_A, BARCODE_1D_UPC_E, BARCODE_1D_EANEXT_5, and BARCODE_1D_EANEXT_2, for these types the text is written according the their ISO standard.
  BARCODE_1D_TEXT_TOP [0x800] Writes the barcode's text at the top of the barcode. This option is ignored for the following standard 1D barcode types; BARCODE_1D_EAN_13, BARCODE_1D_EAN_8, BARCODE_1D_UPC_A, BARCODE_1D_UPC_E, BARCODE_1D_EANEXT_5, and BARCODE_1D_EANEXT_2, for these types the text is written according the their ISO standard.

Comments

This structure is used with LBarcode::Read and LBarcode::Write functions only for linear barcodes.

pBARCODE1D is a pointer to an BARCODE1D structure. Where the function parameter type is pBARCODE1D, you can declare a BARCODE1D variable, update the structure's fields, and pass the variable's address in the parameter. Declaring a pBARCODE1D variable is necessary only if your program requires a pointer.

The Linear barcodes are not supported in UNICODE.

A barcode is composed of start mark, data, and end mark. Reading barcodes from left to right (passing BARCODE_DIR_LEFT_TO_RIGHT value to the nDirection member) or from right to left (passing BARCODE_DIR_RIGHT_TO_LEFT value to the nDirection member) will produce the same result in most cases, because the barcode reader engine recognizes the start and end marks, and handles the data accordingly.

For example, if BARCODE_DIR_LEFT_TO_RIGHT is passed and the user reads barcodes from left to right (the barcode is not rotated), the engine will recognize the start mark first, then the data, and finally the end mark.

But if the user reads barcodes from right to left (the barcode is rotated 180 degrees), the engine will first recognize the end mark, then read the (reverse-order) data, and then recognize the start mark. In this case, the engine will flip the data to normal (start/data/end) order.

Some  GS1 Databar (formerly RSS14) Expanded Stacked strings have a fixed number of symbols. LBarcode::Write returns ERROR_BARCODE_STRING if the number of rows does not fit.

For a table containing information for writing linear 1D barcodes, refer to: https://www.leadtools.com/sdk/barcode/1d-chart.

NOTE: Type RSS14 has been renamed GS1 Databar. All references to RSS14 now refer to GS1 Databar.
