Aspose.Barcode for .NET

We are pleased to announce the release of Aspose.BarCode for .NET 18.3. This is a maintenance release whereby we have resolved some incurring issues in API.

Improved Barcode Recognition From Image and PDF using C#

It was observed that an incomplete evaluation message is displaying when customer is using a free version of Aspose.BarCode API. In this release this issue has been addressed. Following is the list of fixes that were reported by our valued customers.

  • Barcode recognition process have been improved to detect barcodes from PDF files. It was reported that Aspose.BarCode is unable to recognize the barcode from PDF. After investigation it was found that PDF file was created in a very strange way. The barcode image has been stored as a bunch of lines (pieces or parts). When we try to extract the barcode image from PDF file using Aspose.PDF (Aspose.Pdf.Facades.PdfExtractor) it returns many images instead of a single barcode image due to which Aspose.BarCode APIs were unable to recognize the barcode. For this particular case, it is recommended to convert PDF file pages into a single image format with at least 300-400 DPI.
  • Functionality to recognize barcode from images has been enhanced. An other issue was reported that Aspose.BarCode is unable to recognize barcode from a driving license image. In the detailed investigation, it was found that there is no issue with the Aspose.BarCode functionality. The data in the driver license has a particular format and it depends from country to country and state to state.
