PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions Class

Contains extra options to use when reading Patch Code barcodes.
public class PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions : BarcodeReadOptions 
@interface LTPatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions : LTBarcodeReadOptions 
public class PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions extends BarcodeReadOptions 
public ref class PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions : public BarcodeReadOptions, System.ICloneable   

The PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions class is used to control the options when reading Patch Code barcodes using LEADTOOLS. Set the options in two ways:

The BarcodeReader class contains default options for each barcode symbology (or group of common symbologies). These options can be retrieved using the BarcodeReader.GetDefaultOptions method passing one of the following:

Then change the members of the returned PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions by casting it from BarcodeReadOptions to PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions.

Also create an instance of the PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions class and use it directly in the BarcodeReader.ReadBarcode and BarcodeReader.ReadBarcodes methods that accepts a single or array of options as an input parameter.

The base BarcodeReadOptions contains the following members and features:

Member Description

Controls the barcode foreground color (color of the bars or symbols) to use when reading a barcode from a colored image.


Controls the barcode background color (color of the spaces) to use when reading a barcode from a colored image.

BarcodeReadOptions.Load and BarcodeReadOptions.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.PatchCode

In addition to the features and members, the PatchCodeBarcodeReadOptions contains these Patch Code barcodes specific features:

Member Description

The direction to use when searching for barcodes (horizontal, vertical or both)


The number of scanned lines per column to skip when reading a barcode


This example will write and Patch Code barcode to/from an image.
