QRBarcodeWriteOptions Class

Contains extra options to use when writing QR barcodes.
public class QRBarcodeWriteOptions : BarcodeWriteOptions 
@interface LTQRBarcodeWriteOptions : LTBarcodeWriteOptions 
public class QRBarcodeWriteOptions extends BarcodeWriteOptions 
public ref class QRBarcodeWriteOptions : public BarcodeWriteOptions, System.ICloneable   
class QRBarcodeWriteOptions(BarcodeWriteOptions): 

The QRBarcodeWriteOptions class is used to control the options when writing QR 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.QR. Then change the members of the returned QRBarcodeWriteOptions by casting it from BarcodeWriteOptions to QRBarcodeWriteOptions.

You can also create an instance of the QRBarcodeWriteOptions 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.QR

In addition to these features and members, the QRBarcodeWriteOptions contains these QR barcodes specific features:

Member Description

Horizontal alignment for the barcode inside the destination bounds.


Vertical alignment for the barcode inside the destination bounds.


The group number to use when writing QR barcode.


The group total to use when writing QR barcode.


The size of the smallest module when writing a QR barcode.


The ECC (Error Correction) level to use when writing QR barcodes.
