Save(string,BarcodeData[]) Method

Summary

Saves an array of BarcodeData objects to an XML file.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public static void Save( 
   string fileName, 
   BarcodeData[] data 
) 
Public Overloads Shared Sub Save( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String, _ 
   ByVal data() As BarcodeData _ 
)  
public: 
static void Save(  
   String^ fileName, 
   Leadtools.Barcode.array<BarcodeData^>^ data 
)  

Parameters

fileName
Name of the XML file to create

data
An array of BarcodeData objects to save.

Remarks

The load/save methods are provided as helper methods for the user. The BarcodeEngine, BarcodeReader and BarcodeWriter do not use these methods internally. data can be null (Nothing is VB). This is the equivalent of saving an empty array.

To load the data previously saved into an XML file, use BarcodeData.Load(string fileName).

To save and load data to an XML stream, use BarcodeData.Save(Stream stream, BarcodeData[] data) and BarcodeData.Load(Stream stream).

Example

This example reads all the barcodes in an image, saves the data to an XML disk file. It will then load the data from this XML and print out the values.
