BAR Codes

Post by timr » Sun Apr 26, 2009 9:30 am

I'm new to scanning, TWAIN etc. I'm planning on using the GdPicture for .NET classes and an HP9120 scanner. Does anyone know if the bar code features of the TWAIN functions will work?


Does the scanner have to be 'bar code aware' or is it all down to software?

Thanks

Tim

Hi TIM,

In the current release, your scanner needs to provide the barcode reading's feature. You can control this feature using the TwainBarCode... methods.

Also, we will provide a barcode reader plugin to read barcode from any source within 3 months.

Kind regards,

Loïc

Great! Any ideas what the licensing fees are likely to be for the plugin? Similar to the Tesseract plugin?

Hi,

We are trying to keep all our products royalty free. Therefore, the next barcode reader will be royalty free too :wink:

Kind regards,

Loïc

Hi,

Yes. The barcode plugin should be available for the 1st of July 2009. If we are unable to keep this deadline we will release the plugin for the 1st of August due to the holidays.

Kind regards,

Is there any information on which barcodes will be supported in this feature?

I'm looking for both 1d and 2d barcode funtionality (specifically Code39 and DataMatrix), and was wondering if it was worth waiting for this feature to be released or if I need to look elsewhere?

Many thanks,

The plugin is planning to come for 1D barcodes only. We have plans for 2D barcode next year. The date for the release will be between 17th August 2009 and 1st September 2009
