QRBarcodeData Class

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

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

Reading Barcodes

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

Perform standard .NET casting to get the object as QRBarcodeData and then examine the extra data properties associated with it.

In addition to all the data members returned as usual in the base BarcodeData object, this class adds the following members:

In addition to the members above, other QR read options not related to the barcode data can be set using the QRBarcodeReadOptions 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 QR barcode, create an instance of QRBarcodeData and fill the required parameters then pass this object as the data parameter to WriteBarcode.

In addition to all the data members that must be set as usual in the base BarcodeData object, specify the following members:

In addition to the members above, other QR write options not related to the barcode data can be set using the QRBarcodeWriteOptions class.

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

vb[VB Snippet] 
Dim qrData As QRBarcodeData = DirectCast(BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology.QR), QRBarcodeData) 
C# Snippet
QRBarcodeData qrData = BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology.QR) as QRBarcodeData; 

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