DataBar Stacked, DataBar Expanded Stacked and DataBar Stacked Omnidirectional Symbologies Support in Aspose.BarCode for .NET 6.6.0

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.BarCode for .NET 6.6.0. This new release supports the DataBar Stacked, DataBar Expanded and DataBar Stacked Omnidirectional symbologies. Developers can now add generation and recognition operations to their .NET, Compact framework and Silverlights applications. DataBar is really a family of barcode symbologies.

Support for DataBar Stacked

We’ve added support for DataBar stacked generation and recognition. DataBar stacked is a variation of the RSS-14 symbology that is stacked in two rows and is used when the normal symbol would be too wide for the application. The sample code below specifies the use of Aspose.BarCode API.

DataBar Stacked Generation

// Initialize BarCodeBuilder class object
using (BarCodeBuilder builder = new BarCodeBuilder())
{
    // Set code text
    builder.CodeText = "(01)00012345678905";
    // Set symbology type
    builder.SymbologyType = Symbology.DatabarStacked;
    // Save barcode image
    builder.Save("databarstacked.png");
}

Result:

 

 

DataBar Stacked Recognition

// Define BarCodeReader class object
BarCodeReader reader;
// Initialize reader object
reader = new BarCodeReader("databarstacked.png", BarCodeReadType.DatabarStacked);
// Scan barcode image
if (reader.Read())
{
    // Get code text
    Console.WriteLine(reader.GetCodeText());
}
// Dispose reader object
reader.Close();

Result: (01)0001234567890

Support for DataBar Expanded Stacked

We’ve added support for DataBar expanded stacked generation and recognition. A DataBar expanded stacked barcode can grow vertically, it can encode a large amount of data in small space. Below is an Aspose.BarCode API code sample that shows how to use it.

DataBar Expanded Stacked Generation

// Initialize BarCodeBuilder class object
using (BarCodeBuilder builder = new BarCodeBuilder())
{
    // Set code text
    builder.CodeText = "(01)90012345678908(3932)04055GBP";
    // Set symbology type
    builder.SymbologyType = Symbology.DatabarExpandedStacked;
    // Save barcode image
    builder.Save("databarexpandedstacked.png");
}

Result:

Databar Expanded Stacked code

 

 

 

 

 

 

DataBar Expanded Stacked Recognition

// Define BarCodeReader class object
BarCodeReader reader;
// Initialize reader object
reader = new BarCodeReader("databarexpandedstacked.png", BarCodeReadType.DatabarExpandedStacked);
// Scan barcode image
if (reader.Read())
{
    // Get code text
    Console.WriteLine(reader.GetCodeText());
}
// Dispose barcode image
reader.Close();

Result: (01)90012345678908(3932)04055GBP

Support of DataBar Omnidirectional Stacked

We’ve added support for DataBar omnidirectional stacked generation and recognition. It is  perfectly suitable for POS (point of sale) applications. Below, you’ll find a Aspose.BarCode API code sample that shows how to use it.

DataBar OmniDirectional Stacked Generation

// Initialize BarCodeBuilder class object
using (BarCodeBuilder builder = new BarCodeBuilder())
{
    // Set barcode text
    builder.CodeText = "(01)00034567890125";
    // Set symbology type
    builder.SymbologyType = Symbology.DatabarStackedOmniDirectional;
    // Save barcode image
    builder.Save("databarstackedomnidirectional.png");
}

Result:

Databar Stacked Omnidirectional code

 

 

 

 

 

DataBar Omnidirectional Stacked Recognition

// Define BarCodeReader class object
BarCodeReader reader;
// Initialize reader object
reader = new BarCodeReader("databarstackedomnidirectional.png", BarCodeReadType.DatabarStackedOmniDirectional);
// Scan barcode image
if (reader.Read())
{
    // Get barcode text
    Console.WriteLine(reader.GetCodeText());
}
// Dispose reader object
reader.Close();

Result: (01)0003456789012
