This tutorial article mainly talks about how to use our barcode scanning component capabilities to read and recognize Australia Post barcode from images (eg: JPEG, JBIG2, TIFF, PNG, GIF & BMP) and documents (eg: PDF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint) by using C#.NET complete sample code.


We also provide developers and end-users in VB.NET with tutorial of image barcode recognition in VB.NET and image barcode creating in C#.NET.




Australia Post Reading Features in C#.NET



Add advanced Australia Post barcode recognition of images to your C# .NET applications


Integrated with DocImage with the ability of barcode pre-processing capabilities

C# codes to decode Australia Post from Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents

Steps to Read/Scan Data Matrix from Image/PDF/TIFF/Office File



Load an image or a document(PDF, TIFF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint).


Get a Bitmap or BasePage used to decode or read barcode.


Set the barcode reader settings.


Call the following static method in BarcodeReader.cs to read or scan barcode from Bitmap or BasePage.


  public static Barcode[] ReadBarcodes(ReaderSettings settings, BasePage page)


  public static Barcode[] ReadBarcodes(ReaderSettings settings, Bitmap image)


The barcode information will be saved in the array of Barcode object. While, if you read barcodes information from the BasePage failed, you can try as follows:


  Convert BasePage to Bitmap with higher resolution by Calling method ConvertToImage(int resolution) in the BasePage.cs:



            //Convert page to bitmap.
            //The default resolution is 96, if youo set the resolution higher, it will be better to read or scan barcode.
            Bitmap bmp = page.ConvertToImage(192);

            //  read all barcodes in the page
            Barcode[] barcodes = BarcodeReader.ReadBarcodes(settings, bmp);

            foreach (Barcode barcode in barcodes)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Data: " + barcode.DataString);
            }



If you want to have a try, please refer to the following demo codes.


Note: When you get the error "Could not load file or assembly 'RasterEdge.Imaging.Basic' or any other assembly or one of its dependencies. An attempt to load a program with an incorrect format", please check your configure as follows:

       

       If you are using x64 libraries/dlls, Right click the project -> Properties -> Build -> Platform target: x64.

       

       If using x86, the platform target should be x86.




C# Code to Read Australia Post on Image



RasterEdge Barcode Reader Add-on provides fully-managed C# code to help users read Australia Post barcode from image. The barcode reading engine can be used to read a single barcode from an image and multiple barcodes from an image, or in conjunction with our DocTwain module to separate pages during barcode batch scanning. The supported barcode images are: JPEG, JBIG2, BMP, PNG, TIFF and GIF.


Add necessary references to your C#.NET project. Right-click the project and select "Add Reference..." to locate and add the following DLLs as project references;

            ReaderSettings settings = new ReaderSettings();
            //  define the type of barcode to scan
            settings.AddTypesToRead(BarcodeType.AustraliaPost);

            //  read all barcodes in the document
            Barcode[] barcodes = BarcodeReader.ReadBarcodes(settings, bmp);

            foreach (Barcode barcode in barcodes)
            {
