Maxicode bulls eye is rendered as a black circle?

I am evaluating your .NET Forms Maxicode component, but it don't render the bulls eye correctly.

I am using this code:
IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.Maxicode control = new IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.Maxicode(true);
control.ApplyTilde = true;
control.Resolution = IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.Resolutions.Custom;
control.ResolutionCustomDPI = (int)m_currentGraphics.DpiX;
control.DataToEncode = shape.BarcodeData;
float xOffset = m_currentGraphics.DpiX * (float)x / 25.4f;
float yOffset = m_currentGraphics.DpiY * (float)y / 25.4f;
control.PaintOnGraphics(m_currentGraphics, xOffset, yOffset);

Please advice.

Regards;
/jb

Best Answer

When creating MaxiCode symbols with graphic products, the DPI or Resolution property should be set to closely match the resolution of the printer and the distance the inner dots are from the outer circle of the bullseye according to the Symbol Size and Tolerance chart. Some of the inner dots should be very close to the bullseye, so that they are almost touching it. If they are not, increase or lower the DPI or Resolution property slightly until the symbol looks correct. This rare issue may occur because some combinations of printers and resolutions calculate and round down the size of the bullseye.

Can you send a screen shot of the barcode on screen AND a scan of the printed barcode to support@idautomation.com ?
