C# Code to Scan Leitcode on Image and Document




Leitcode Scanning in C#.NET Overview



RasterEdge Barcode Add-on controls are the most comprehensive barcode toolkits on the market, which support both reading and writing of about 30 barcode types and sub-types, including all the commonly used linear and 2D barcodes. As for our barcode reader, RasterEdge offers the fastest barcode recognition APIs. RasterEdge Barcode Reader is optimized to provide very high accuracy even on poor quality images and document files with damaged barcodes. In addition, users can integrate RasterEdge Barcode Reader functionalities into your .NET applications easily, such as Visual C#.NET, Visual Basic .NET, ASP.NET Web and Windows Forms for VS.NET.

This article mainly talks about the C#.NET Leitcode Barcode Reader in RasterEdge .NET Imaging SDK, which is designed to help users to decode Leitcode barcode from images and document pages.



C#.NET Leitcode Scanning Features



Integrating Leitcode reading functionality into C#.NET application is very easy


Maximize the benefits of Leitcode high speed processors via multiple threads and cores


Support Leitcode reading on both bitonal and color barcode images


Clean noisy or damaged images to improve recognition accuracy in C#.NET


Read Leitcode barcode from poor quality PDF, Word, Excel & PowerPoint document files with high accuracy


Reduce the human interaction requirement with the high accuracy recognition




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.




Scan Leitcode from Images in C#.NET



As you would hope, it's easy to scan Leitcode from images in C#.NET application. Please note that, following C# demo code is for recognizing Leitcode from PNG images. Other supported raster image formats are: JPEG, GIF & BMP.


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;


  RasterEdge.Imaging.Basic.dll


  RasterEdge.XImage.BarcodeScanner.dll


Use corresponding namespaces;


  using RasterEdge.XImage.BarcodeScanner;




            Bitmap bmp = new Bitmap(inputDirectory + "Sample_Barcode.png");
            //  config reader setting
            ReaderSettings settings = new ReaderSettings();
            //  define the type of barcode to scan
            settings.AddTypesToRead(BarcodeType.Leitcode);

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

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

Following C# sample code allows users to read Leitcode from TIFF image with RasterEdge .NET Barcode Reader.


Add references(Extra):


  RasterEdge.XDoc.TIFF.dll


Use corresponding namespaces(Extra):

            foreach (Barcode barcode in barcodes)
            {
                // print the loaction of barcode on image
                Console.WriteLine(barcode.BoundingRectangle.X + "  " + barcode.BoundingRectangle.Y);

                // output barcode data onto screen 
                Console.WriteLine(barcode.DataString);
            }





Scan Leitcode from PDF in C#.NET



Compared with reading Leitcode from images, scanning Leitcode from PDF will be a little more challenging for that users should convert the PDF barcode pages into images first before you can read Leitcode barcode. Following sample C# code will display the detailed steps.

            BasePage page = doc.GetPage(0);

            // set reader setting
            ReaderSettings setting = new ReaderSettings();

            // set type to read
            setting.AddTypesToRead(BarcodeType.Leitcode);

            // read barcode from PDF page
            Barcode[] barcodes = BarcodeReader.ReadBarcodes(setting, page);

            foreach (Barcode barcode in barcodes)
            {
                // print the loaction of barcode on image
                Console.WriteLine(barcode.BoundingRectangle.X + "  " + barcode.BoundingRectangle.Y);

                // output barcode data onto screen 
                Console.WriteLine(barcode.DataString);
            }
