Softek Barcode Reader Toolkit for Windows Copyright Softek Software Ltd 2002-2024

This is a .NET Framework 4.0 package that reads barcodes from JPG, TIF and PDF format data or bitmaps held in memory.

Full documentation for the SDK can be downloaded from:

http://softeksoftware.co.uk/download/barcode_sdk/documentation.pdf

Support and trial license email: nuget@bardecode.com

Basic use:

barcode = new SoftekBarcodeNet.BarcodeReader(); nBarCode = barcode.ScanBarCode("inputfile.pdf"); // Can be TIF, BMP, JPG or PDF for (int i = 1; i ⇐ nBarCode; i++) value = barcode.GetBarString(i);

Setting more options and getting more results:

using (barcode = new SoftekBarcodeNet.BarcodeReader())
{

    // Enter your license key here
    // You can get a trial license key from nuget@bardecode.com
    // Example:
    // barcode.LicenseKey = "MY LICENSE KEY";

    // Turn on the barcode types you want to read.
    // Turn off the barcode types you don't want to read (this will increase the speed of your application)
    barcode.ReadCode128 = true;
    barcode.ReadCode39 = true;
    barcode.ReadCode25 = true;

    barcode.ReadEAN8 = true;
    barcode.ReadUPCA = true;
    barcode.ReadUPCE = true;
    barcode.ReadCodabar = false;
    barcode.ReadPDF417 = true;
    barcode.ReadDataMatrix = true;
    barcode.ReadDatabar = true;

    // Databar Options is a mask that controls which type of databar barcodes will be read and whether or not
    // the software will look for a quiet zone around the barcode.
    // 1 = 2D-Linkage flag (handle micro-PDf417 barcodes as supplementary data - requires ReadMicroPDF417 to be true).
    // 2 = Read RSS14
    // 4 = Read RSS14 Stacked
    // 8 = Read Limited
    // 16 = Read Expanded
    // 32 = Read Expanded Stacked
    // 64 = Require quiet zone
    barcode.DatabarOptions = 255;

    // If you want to read more than one barcode then set Multiple Read to 1
    // Setting MutlipleRead to False will make the recognition faster
    barcode.MultipleRead = true;

    // Noise reduction takes longer but can make it possible to read some difficult barcodes
    // When using noise reduction a typical value is 10 - the smaller the value the more effect it has.
    // A zero value turns off noise reduction. 
    // barcode.NoiseReduction = 0 ;

    // You may need to set a small quiet zone if your barcodes are close to text and pictures in the image.
    // A value of zero uses the default.

    // barcode.SetScanRect(scanArea, 1);

    // Set the direction that the barcode reader should scan for barcodes
    // The value is a mask where 1 = Left to Right, 2 = Top to Bottom, 4 = Right To Left, 8 = Bottom to Top
    barcode.ScanDirection = 15;

    // DeskewMode controls the way in which the toolkit handles skewed documents. At the default level (2) 
    // the toolkit will deskew at the main angle of the whole image. If the bar code is at a different angle
    // to the rest of the image then try 3. For more complex images try values from 4 to 6.
    barcode.DeskewMode = 2;

    // ColorProcessingLevel controls how much time the toolkit will searching a color image for a barcode.
    // The default value is 2 and the range of values is 0 to 5. If ColorThreshold is non-zero then 
    // ColorProcessingLevel is effectively set to 0.
    barcode.ColorProcessingLevel = 2;

    // MaxLength and MinLength can be used to specify the number of characters you expect to
    // find in a barcode. This can be useful to increase accuracy or if you wish to ignore some
    // barcodes in an image.
    barcode.MinLength = 4;
    barcode.MaxLength = 999;

    // When the toolkit scans an image it records the score it gets for each barcode that
    // MIGHT be in the image. If the scores recorded for any of the barcodes are >= PrefOccurrence
    // then only these barcodes are returned. Otherwise, any barcode whose scores are >= MinOccurrence
