Bounds Property

Gets or sets the barcode location and size on the image.
public virtual LeadRect Bounds { get; set; } 
@property (nonatomic, assign) LeadRect bounds; 
public LeadRect getBounds() 
public void setBounds(LeadRect value) 
virtual property LeadRect Bounds { 
   LeadRect get(); 
   void set (    LeadRect ); 
Bounds # get and set (BarcodeData) 

Property Value

A LeadRect object that specifies the barcode location and size on the image. The default value is LeadRect.Empty. The default value is 0,0,0,0.


Reading Barcodes

The BarcodeReader.ReadBarcode or BarcodeReader.ReadBarcodes methods are used to read one barcode or more from an image. Each of these methods returns an object or an array of objects of type BarcodeData for each barcode found. Inside each object, the value of the Bounds property will be set by the BarcodeReader object to the location and size of the barcode.

For a tutorial, refer to one of the Extract Barcodes Tutorial.

Writing Barcodes

The BarcodeWriter.WriteBarcode method is used to write barcodes to an image. Create an instance of BarcodeData and fill its members before passing it to this method. The Bounds property informs the BarcodeWriter object of the location and size of this new barcode on the image.

Not all sizes can be used when writing a barcode and the value of the width and height of the bounds can have a special meaning. For more information, refer to Writing Barcodes - Bounds and XModule.

For a tutorial, refer to one of the Write Barcodes Tutorial.
