Aspose.Barcode for .NET

We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.Barcode for .NET 17.7. The major development in this release is the support to get minimum barcode image size. Improved functionality of GetOnlyBarCodeImage method has also been incorporated in this release.

Get Minimum BarCode Size using C#

Aspose.BarCode now supports the functionality to get the minimum height & width required for a barcode image. How a developer can get the minimum size (height & width) required for a barcode image is very simple and is demonstrated in the code snippet given below. The code snippet contains comments that makes it self explanatory.

// Create an instance of BarCodeBuilder class
// Set barcode text
// Set encoding type
using (Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeBuilder builder = new Aspose.BarCode.BarCodeBuilder("1234567890", Aspose.BarCode.Generation.EncodeTypes.Code128))
    // Set graphic unit
    builder.GraphicsUnit = System.Drawing.GraphicsUnit.Pixel;

    // Call GetMinimumBarCodeSize method to get the minimum size required
    System.Drawing.SizeF minSize = builder.GetMinimumBarCodeSize();

    // Set Auto size to false
    builder.AutoSize = false;

    // Set image height & width with the help of min size got from GetMinimumBarCodeSize method
    builder.ImageWidth = minSize.Width;
    builder.ImageHeight = minSize.Height;

    // Save the barcode image
    using (System.Drawing.Bitmap image = builder.BarCodeImage)
