AztecBarcodeData Class


Contains the data for a single Aztec barcode.

public class AztecBarcodeData : BarcodeData 
@interface LTAztecBarcodeData : LTBarcodeData<NSCopying> 
public class AztecBarcodeData extends BarcodeData 
public ref class AztecBarcodeData : public BarcodeData, System.ICloneable   

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

Reading Barcodes

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

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

Aztec read options not related to the barcode data can be set using the AztecBarcodeReadOptions 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 an Aztec barcode, create an instance of AztecBarcodeData and fill the required parameters, then pass this object as the data parameter to WriteBarcode.

Aztec write options not related to the barcode data can be set using the AztecBarcodeWriteOptions class.

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

vb[VB Snippet] 
Dim AztecData As AztecBarcodeData = DirectCast(BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology.Aztec), AztecBarcodeData) 
C# Snippet
AztecBarcodeData AztecData = BarcodeData.CreateDefaultBarcodeData(BarcodeSymbology.Aztec) as AztecBarcodeData; 

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