C# Imaging - Scan 1D POSTNET in C#.NET


How to Scan POSTNET on Images and Documents in C#.NET Project. Support Read barcode from PDF in C#.




C#.NET POSTNET Scanning Overview



RaterEdge Barcode Reading SDK is included with the RaterEdge .NET Imaging SDK suite products, which is available for reading and decoding all the linear and 2D barcodes on images and document pages in variable .NET developing applications, like C#.NET, VB.NET, ASP.NET and .NET Windows Forms. RasterEdge Barcode Reader ensures the most comprehensive reporting of the recognized barcodes, including barcodes data, type, subtype, location, orientation and group. What's more, the multiple supported barcode reading image formats are: TIFF, PNG, BMP, GIF & JPEG; and supported document files are: PDF, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

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 POSTNET Barcode on Images in C#.NET



Different from general barcode reader, RasterEdge Barcode Image Reading Add-on for .NET empowers developers and end-users to detect and decode POSTENT linear barcode from BMP, PNG, JPEG, ITFF and GIF images with 100% accuracy and confidence. Please see following detailed C# demo code to successfully read POSTNET barcode from images.


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;

            //  config reader setting
            ReaderSettings settings = new ReaderSettings();
            //  define the type of barcode to scan
            settings.AddTypesToRead(BarcodeType.Postnet);

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

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