CreateDefaultBarcodeData Method

Summary

Returns an instance of BarcodeData suitable for writing containing default and valid values for the specified symbology .

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public static BarcodeData CreateDefaultBarcodeData( 
   BarcodeSymbology symbology 
) 
Public Shared Function CreateDefaultBarcodeData( _ 
   ByVal symbology As BarcodeSymbology _ 
) As BarcodeData 
+ (nullable LTBarcodeData *)createDefaultBarcodeData:(LTBarcodeSymbology)symbology 
public static BarcodeData createDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology symbology) 
public: 
static Leadtools.Barcode.BarcodeData^ CreateDefaultBarcodeData(  
   BarcodeSymbology symbology 
)  

Parameters

symbology
Barcode symbology.

Return Value

An instance of BarcodeData or one of its derived classes filled with default and legal values of the symbology that can be used directly with BarcodeWriter.WriteBarcode.

Remarks

When writing barcodes, you must fill in a member of BarcodeData with legal values for the symbology based on the standard. This method can be used to quickly create a valid BarcodeData instance for the specified symbology and might be helpful for debugging.

The C# and VB Barcode demos use this method to obtain an initial BarcodeData for a symbology.

Note that if the symbology supports derived BarcodeData types, then an instance of the derived class will be returned instead. This includes DatamatrixBarcodeData, MicroPDF417BarcodeData, PDF417BarcodeData and QRBarcodeData for BarcodeSymbology.Datamatrix, BarcodeSymbology.MicroPDF417, BarcodeSymbology.PDF417 and BarcodeSymbology.QR respectively.

The GetBarcodeDataType method returns the Type of the derived class associated with a specified symbology or the BarcodeData type when the symbology does not have a specialized data class.

Example

This example writes all the supported barcodes with LEADTOOLS using their default values.
