MicroQRBarcodeData Class

Contains the data for a single MicroQR barcode.
public class MicroQRBarcodeData : BarcodeData 
@interface LTMicroQRBarcodeData : LTBarcodeData<NSCopying> 
public class MicroQRBarcodeData extends BarcodeData 
public ref class MicroQRBarcodeData : public BarcodeData, System.ICloneable   
class MicroQRBarcodeData(BarcodeData): 

The MicroQRBarcodeData class derives from the base BarcodeData to add specific data that can be read or written when using MicroQR barcodes.

Reading Barcodes

When the BarcodeReader object detects and reads a MicroQR ( BarcodeSymbology.MicroQR), the BarcodeReader.ReadBarcode and BarcodeReader.ReadBarcodes methods will return the MicroQRBarcodeData object for each barcode cast down to the base BarcodeData class.

You can perform standard .NET casting to get the object as MicroQRBarcodeData and then examine the extra data properties associated with it.

MicroQR read options not related to the barcode data can be set using the MicroQRBarcodeReadOptions class.

Writing Barcodes

The BarcodeWriter class contains the WriteBarcode method that is used to write a barcode to an image. This method accepts the data parameter as the base BarcodeData object. To write a MicroQR barcode, create an instance of MicroQRBarcodeData and fill the required parameters, then pass this object as the data parameter to WriteBarcode.

MicroQR write options not related to the barcode data can be set using the MicroQRBarcodeWriteOptions class.

You can use the static (or Shared in VB) BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData method to create a new instance of MicroQRBarcodeData that contains default parameters ready for writing to an image:

vb[VB Snippet] 
Dim MicroQRData As MicroQRBarcodeData = DirectCast(BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology.MicroQR), MicroQRBarcodeData) 
C# Snippet
MicroQRBarcodeData MicroQRData = BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology.MicroQR) as MicroQRBarcodeData; 

This example writes a couple of MicroQR barcodes with different options to an image and then reads them back.
