Remarks

The BarcodeWriter class contains the BarcodeWriter.WriteBarcode method which is used to write a barcode to an image. You must create an instance of BarcodeWriter, fill its members with the barcode properties and pass it to this method.

The BarcodeWriteOptions class and its derived types is used to control the options used when writing a barcode using LEADTOOLS. You can set the options in two ways:

The BarcodeWriter class contains default options for each barcode symbology (or group of common symbologies). These options can be retrieved using the BarcodeWriter.GetDefaultOptions method passing the symbology of interest. You can then change members of the returned BarcodeWriteOptions (or after casting it to the appropriate derived class).

You can also create an instance of one of the derived BarcodeWriteOptions classes and use it directly in the BarcodeWriter.WriteBarcode method which accepts the options as an input parameter.

The BarcodeWriteOptions contains the following members and features:

Member Description
BarcodeWriteOptions.ForeColor

Controls the barcode foreground color (color of the bars or symbols) to use when writing a barcode to an image.

BarcodeWriteOptions.BackColor

Controls the barcode background color (color of the spaces) to use when writing a barcode to an image.

BarcodeWriteOptions.Load and BarcodeWriteOptions.Save

Can be used to save or load the options to/from an XML file or stream.

BarcodeWriteOptions.GetSupportedSymbologies and BarcodeWriteOptions.IsSupportedSymbology

Can be used to get all the BarcodeSymbology's supported by this BarcodeWriteOptions type or to check when a particular symbology is supported.

BarcodeWriteOptions is an abstract class and cannot be created directly, instead create one of the these derived classes:

Write options class Descriptions
OneDBarcodeWriteOptions

Standard 1D linear barcode options. Used when writing any of the following symbologies: EAN13, EAN8, UPCA, UPCE, Code3Of9, Code128, CodeInterleaved2Of5, Codabar, UCCEAN128, Code93, EANEXT5, EANEXT2, MSI, Code11, CodeStandard2Of5, GS1Databar, GS1DatabarLimited or GS1DatabarExpanded

GS1DatabarStackedBarcodeWriteOptions

GS1 DataBar Stacked barcode options. Used when writing GS1DatabarStacked or GS1DatabarExpandedStacked symbologies

FourStateBarcodeWriteOptions

4-State barcode options. Used when writing AustralianPost4State, RoyalMail4State or USPS4State symbologies

PostNetPlanetBarcodeWriteOptions

POSTNET/Planet barcode options. Used when writing PostNet or Planet symbologies

PatchCodeBarcodeWriteOptions

Patch code barcode options. Used when writing PatchCode symbology.

DatamatrixBarcodeWriteOptions

Datamatrix barcode options. Used when writing Datamatrix symbology.

MicroPDF417BarcodeWriteOptions

Micro PDF417 barcode options. Used when writing MicroPDF417 symbology.

PDF417BarcodeWriteOptions

PDF417 barcode options. Used when writing PDF417 symbology.

QRBarcodeWriteOptions

QR barcode options. Used when writing QR symbology.

AztecBarcodeWriteOptions

Aztec barcode options. Used when writing Aztec symbology.

MaxiBarcodeWriteOptions

Maxi barcode options. Used when writing Maxi symbology.

MicroQRBarcodeWriteOptions

MicroQR barcode options. Used when writing MicroQR symbology.

PharmaCodeBarcodeWriteOptions

PharmaCode barcode options. Used when writing PharmaCode symbology.

Example

This example sets the "Use X Module" option of all supported symbologies to be "true" and then creates TIFF files of all the supported barcodes.
