Distinguishing Features of C# UPC-A Barcode Encoding SDK
With two powerful functions, the C# UPC-A barcode encoding SDK from BarcodeLib.com successfully stands out from other barcode scanners.

Function 1: Read & decode a maximum UPC-A barcode with little scanning time

There is a property "maxOneBarcodePerPage" in our C#.NET UPC-A barcode encoding SDK.
  1. If you set it to true, the reader will stop scanning once it detects one barcode.
  2. If you set it to false, the reader will use total 5 algorithms and each will scan the whole source file from 4 directions.

Function 2: Only scan the barcode region to decode UPC-A barcode

In general, a barcode reader will scan both barcode area and non-barcode area. So it is an essential way to enhance the productivity by removing the recognition time spent in scanning the non-barcode region. By introducing the concept of coordinates-positioning, our barcode reader could easily locate the scanning region.
  1. Note: the most left top point is (0%, 0%), and most right bottom point is (100%, 100%). The point X, Y values are expressed in percentage of the whole image.
For example, if the UPC-A barcode is located in the top 20% & bottom 20% area, we could direct the reader only to scan in this area by using following C#.NET programming codes:
     OptimizeSetting setting = new OptimizeSetting();


ScanArea top20 = new ScanArea(new PointF(0.0F, 0.0F), new PointF(100.0F, 20.0F));

ScanArea bottom20 = new ScanArea(new PointF(0.0F, 80.0F), new PointF(100.0F, 100.0F));

List<ScanArea> areas = new List<ScanArea>();


string[] results = BarcodeReader.read("c:/upca-csharp.gif", BarcodeReader.UPCA, setting);
