We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.BarCode for .NET 6.7.0. This new release supports encoding of Patch Code symbology, includes a new Line Codes Restoration filter, allows to check the license status  and improves Windows Embedded Compact support. We have also fixed several other defects.

Patch Code Generation using Aspose.BarCode for .NET

We’ve added encoding support of Patch code symbology, whereas decoding capability is already present. The Patch Codes aid in batch scanning of documents. It is a specific barcode and often is used in whole pages. Following help topic shows, how developers can generate whole page: How to Generate a Patch Code

Support of Windows Embedded Compact

Aspose.BarCode for .NET API gives control to Windows Embedded Compact users to add barcode generation and recognition functionality in their .NET applications. Below is an Aspose.BarCode API code sample that shows how to use it.

For Generation

// set license file name
string licensefilename = "Aspose.BarCode.lic";
// initialize license class object
License license = new License();
// apply license
license.SetLicense(licensefilename);

// initialize BarCodeBuilder class object
BarCodeBuilder builder = new BarCodeBuilder(textBox1.Text, Symbology.DatabarStackedOmniDirectional);

// set dimensions
builder.xDimension = 2;
builder.yDimension = 4;

// display barcode picture
pictureBox1.Image = builder.BarCodeImage;

Result:

 

For Recognition

// set license file name
string licensefilename = "Aspose.BarCode.lic";
// initialize license class object
License license = new License();
// apply license
license.SetLicense(licensefilename);

// initialize BarCodeReader class object
BarCodeReader reader = new BarCodeReader((Bitmap)pictureBox1.Image,
BarCodeReadType.DatabarStackedOmniDirectional);
// scan image
reader.Read();
// get code text
textBox2.Text = reader.GetCodeText();
reader.Close();

Result: (01)0003456789012

Line Codes Restoration Filter

We’ve added a new Line Codes Restoration filter. This filter restores corrupted strokes for 1D barcodes. This degradation could come from dirty, dusty products or discarded barcode resulting in touched or missing parts of the bars.
