LoadOptions(string) Method

Summary

Loads the default write options used of this BarcodeWriter from the specified XML file.

Syntax

C#
VB
C++
public void LoadOptions( 
   string fileName 
) 

Public Overloads Sub LoadOptions( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String _ 
)  

public: 
void LoadOptions(  
   String^ fileName 
)  

Parameters

fileName
The XML file containing the data.

Remarks

The load/save methods are provided as helper methods for the user. The BarcodeEngine, BarcodeWriter and BarcodeWriter do not use these methods internally.

The default write options can be retrieved using the GetDefaultOptions or GetAllDefaultOptions methods. You can then change the values of the BarcodeWriteOptions object returned (or cast it back to the appropriate derived class). These options are used by the WriteBarcode method when no explicit options are passed by the user.

To save the default options to an XML file, use BarcodeWriter.SaveOptions(string fileName).

To save and load data to an XML stream, use BarcodeWriter.SaveOptions(Stream stream) and BarcodeWriter.LoadOptions(Stream stream).

Example

This example will show how to change, save and then load the options of a BarcodeWriter object.

C#
VB
using Leadtools; 
using Leadtools.Codecs; 
using Leadtools.Barcode; 
using Leadtools.ImageProcessing; 
 
public void BarcodeWriter_LoadSaveOptionsExample() 
{ 
   string xmlFileName = Path.Combine(LEAD_VARS.ImagesDir, "MyWriteOptions.xml"); 
 
   BarcodeEngine engine1 = new BarcodeEngine(); 
   BarcodeWriter writer1 = engine1.Writer; 
 
   // Show a few of the default options 
   ShowWriterOptions("Default options 1:", writer1); 
 
   // Change some options 
   OneDBarcodeWriteOptions oneDWriteOptions = writer1.GetDefaultOptions(BarcodeSymbology.UPCA) as OneDBarcodeWriteOptions; 
   oneDWriteOptions.UseXModule = true; 
   QRBarcodeWriteOptions qrWriteOptions = writer1.GetDefaultOptions(BarcodeSymbology.QR) as QRBarcodeWriteOptions; 
   qrWriteOptions.HorizontalAlignment = BarcodeAlignment.Far; 
 
   // Show them 
   ShowWriterOptions("New options 1:", writer1); 
 
   // Save the options to an XML file 
   writer1.SaveOptions(xmlFileName); 
 
   // Now create another BarcodeWriter 
   // We could use the same one, but this example will show that changing the options 
   // for one BarcodeWriter will not change it in any other in the application 
 
   BarcodeEngine engine2 = new BarcodeEngine(); 
   BarcodeWriter writer2 = engine2.Writer; 
 
   // Show a few of the default options, should be the same as the first default options 
   ShowWriterOptions("Default options 2:", writer2); 
 
   // Load the options we just saved 
   writer2.LoadOptions(xmlFileName); 
 
   // Show them, should be the same as the new options in wirter1 
   ShowWriterOptions("Loaded options 2:", writer2); 
}
