Arabic QR code can't scan - shows some English chars instead


We have recently purchased the IDAutomation Java Barcode Package. We are using 2021 version and QR code is generated in both Arabic and English.
But we scan the Arabic, Arabic chars are not showing. Instead of its showing some English chars. Need your help to sort out this issue.
In Our Current ERP, JDK 7.0 version is used and code is compiled on the same Java version.


Application: Java Encoder

Hello Arunk, the 2021 version of the Java Barcode Package fully supports the encoding of Arabic characters and UTF-8. You can test scan the image with the Barcode Decoder Verification App - it decodes Arabic and UTF-8 in QR-Code.

Verify two property settings:
ApplyTilde = false;
EncodingMode = "Byte";

Arunk,

Similar to what I mentioned in email, there is no need to compile a jar. The Developer Tools includes the IDAutomation_QRCode_JavaFontEncoder.jar. Class files are in the jar and can either be extracted from the jar or remain in the jar.

Attach the jar file. When I open the zip sent to email, it is not in a jar and the file is old. When I open the jar file from our store download, it is a 2021 jar, not a class file created between 2016-2019. Verify that the correct class/jar are used. You may have to clear out all jar and class files related to the encoder and re-download the Developer Tools. If you do not have access to it, let us know.

In the zip file sent to support, I see an old class file dated 2019. Verify that you are using the .jar file from IDAutomation's Developer Tools and not the download from Tim Dexter's site, which has an old class file.

The problem may be with the encoder not encoding utf8. Can you update the example in the package that generates a barcode image with both Arabic and English as you mention and reproduce the image? If so, please attach it here as a zip file and we will update the Java encoder.

We are unable to test scan the image attached because it is distorted. Can you create another image with a larger x dimension that is not distorted?
You can test scan the image yourself with the Barcode Decoder Verification App - it decodes UTF-8 in QR-Code. If the Barcode Decoder Verification App properly reads the encoded data, then the problem is with your scanner.
