ForeColor Property

Summary

Gets or sets the barcode foreground (bars or symbol) color used when writing barcodes.

Syntax

C#
VB
Java
Objective-C
C++
public RasterColor ForeColor { get; set; } 
Public Property ForeColor As Leadtools.RasterColor 
@property (nonatomic, copy) LTRasterColor *foreColor 
public RasterColor getForeColor() 
public void setForeColor(RasterColor value) 
             
public: 
property Leadtools.RasterColor ForeColor { 
   Leadtools.RasterColor get(); 
   void set (    Leadtools.RasterColor ); 
} 

Property Value

A RasterColor that specifies the barcode foreground (bars or symbol) color when writing barcodes. Default value is "Black" (RGB of #000000).

Remarks

LEADTOOLS will use ForeColor and BackColor when drawing the new barcode to the image and no special processing is performed. Note that you can specify a transparent color for BackColor to "overlay" the barcode on top of the background of the image. This however, is not recommended.

Example

This example writes a UPC-A barcode to an image with specific colors.
