AztecBarcodeWriteOptions Class

Contains the extra options to use when writing Aztec barcodes.
public class AztecBarcodeWriteOptions : BarcodeWriteOptions 
@interface LTAztecBarcodeWriteOptions : LTBarcodeWriteOptions 
public class AztecBarcodeWriteOptions extends BarcodeWriteOptions 
public ref class AztecBarcodeWriteOptions : public BarcodeWriteOptions, System.ICloneable   
class AztecBarcodeWriteOptions(BarcodeWriteOptions): 

The AztecBarcodeWriteOptions class is used to control the options when writing Aztec barcodes using LEADTOOLS. 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 BarcodeSymbology.Aztec. You can then change the members of the returned AztecBarcodeWriteOptions by casting it from BarcodeWriteOptions to AztecBarcodeWriteOptions.

You can also create an instance of AztecBarcodeWriteOptions class and use it directly in the BarcodeWriter.WriteBarcode method which accepts the options as an input parameter.

The base BarcodeWriteOptions contains the following members and features:

Member Description

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


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.


This class overrides the base class method to return an array containing the following symbologies: BarcodeSymbology.Aztec


Gets the friendly name of this class.

In addition to the features and members, the AztecBarcodeWriteOptions contains these Aztec barcodes specific features:

Member Description

Write Aztec Rune symbols.


The value that will be encoded when writing Aztec Rune symbols.


The minimum ratio of error detection and correction codewords to use when writing Aztec Code.


The number of free of all marking pixels that will be added per side when writing Aztec Code.


The Aztec Code symbol size to use when writing Aztec Code.


Size of the smallest module when writing in thousands of an inch (0.001).
