QR Code is a widely used two-dimensional barcode type. It can be seen everywhere in daily life and enjoys wide widespread adoption, such as streamlining customer's visit, reinventing shopping experience, providing real-time information (V-card) and so on. All these things can be conveniently done by scanning QR Code barcode images. Then, do you want to make things easier with QR Code recognition? If so, please try pqScan .NET Barcode Scanner SDK.

This .NET Barcode Reading SDK is developed in Visual C# programming and completely comply with .NET Windows and ASP.NET web applications. Various QR Code scanning features can be realized by well-compiled APIs. You may see detailed features and APIs below.

QR Code Scanning Feature

  • Read QR Code barcode data from image files and stream objects
  • Scan and return all barcodes information as array on a loaded image
  • Recognize and return barcode type (as QR Code) for type unknown situation
  • Define only to read QR Code on an image file that contains several barcode types
  • Have the ability of reading rotated barcodes with 0, 90, 180, 270 degrees

QR Code Scanning APIs

In all, six main .NET APIs will be implemented in QR Code scanning application.

public static BarcodeResult[] Scan(Bitmap bitmap);
public static BarcodeResult[] Scan(Stream stream);
public static BarcodeResult[] Scan(string filename);
public static BarcodeResult[] Scan(Bitmap bitmap, BarCodeType barType);
public static BarcodeResult[] Scan(Stream stream, BarCodeType barType);
public static BarcodeResult[] Scan(string filename, BarCodeType barType);
			
  • The first three .NET barcode recognition APIs are used to scan and read (all) QR Code 2D barcode(s) from image of Bitmap, Stream, and String forms. The barcode reading result will include barcode data and barcode type (QR Code).
  • The later three APIs are used only when you cannot recognize what barcode type(s) are on your target images.

QR Code Scanning Source and Result

pqScan .NET Barcode Scanner Toolkit supports several common raster image sources, including bmp, jpg, jpeg, png, tif, and gif. Later, you will also be enabled to read QR Code from PDF document file.

As stated in QR Code Scanning Feature section, all .NET QR Code barcode recognition result will be in the form of array.
