GetDefaultOptions Method

Summary

Gets the default read options for a specified symbology.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public BarcodeReadOptions GetDefaultOptions( 
   BarcodeSymbology symbology 
) 

Public Function GetDefaultOptions( _ 
   ByVal symbology As BarcodeSymbology _ 
) As BarcodeReadOptions 

- (LTBarcodeReadOptions *)defaultOptionsForSymbology:(LTBarcodeSymbology)symbology 

public BarcodeReadOptions getDefaultOptions(BarcodeSymbology symbology) 

public: 
BarcodeReadOptions^ GetDefaultOptions(  
   BarcodeSymbology symbology 
)  

Parameters

symbology
An BarcodeSymbology enumeration member that specifies the barcode symbology (or type) to get its options.

Return Value

The BarcodeReadOptions derived object used by this BarcodeReader as the default read options to use when reading barcodes of the type specified in symbology.

Remarks

LEADTOOLS provides extra options to use when reading barcodes. These options are used to fine tune the parameters or provide extra pre-known information that are specific to certain types of barcodes. The base abstract class for the options is BarcodeReadOptions. LEADTOOLS provides derived classes for each symbology (or group of symbologies). Refer to BarcodeReadOptions for more information.

The BarcodeReader class contains default options for each barcode symbology (or group of common symbologies). These options can be retrieved using the GetDefaultOptions method passing the symbology of interest. You can then change the members of the returned BarcodeReadOptions (or after casting it to the appropriate derived class). These default options will be used by the BarcodeReader when the user calls the ReadBarcode and ReadBarcodes methods with no specific options (by either using versions of the method that do not take options as a parameter, pass null or Nothing for the options parameter for versions that accept options as a parameter, or finally if the options parameter array does not contain options class that is associated with a read barcode).

You can also create an instance of one of the derived BarcodeReadOptions classes and use it directly in ReadBarcode and ReadBarcodes methods that accept options as a parameter.

BarcodeSymbology.Unknown is a special type that is used to instruct the engine to read all barcodes. It does not have an associated read options class and should not be used in this method, otherwise, an exception will be thrown.

Example

This example shows how to get the default options used when reading standard linear 1D barcodes (UPC-A, UPC-E, etc) and changes them before reading the barcodes
