Using Trial Maxicode - Barcode is not Square and cannot be scanned


We are evaluating the Maxicode Barcode and it is always coming out narrow and longer and therefore it cannot be scanned. Can you please advise if this is because it is the use of the trial version?

If so, is there a version we can use to correctly evaluate the product?

Best Answer

The issue is now solved. Instead of using the Picture Property which distorts the image, I am using the BMPPicture property which gives a good image and when put in a picture box in active reports works correctly.

Why the Picture property does not work correctly is for you to solve. Additionally if I put the control directly on the Active Reports report then the same image appears as in the Picture property. This is not so good.

Are you attempting to print directly from the form? I believe the control on the form either placed or using a picture box will use the screen's resolution. This is why you may not see the change.

I am sorry that is not possible as it is a large massive project and not able to pull that out. The code is below that builds your picture and is what we so please use that to evaluate it.

The decision will be in then next two days so if I have no answers then the product will not be looked at further.

Regards,

Anthony

The image is below.

This is a picture box and we use Active Reports. The code use to generate the picture and populate it is below. It does not matter if I use the control directly on the field or not as I always have this issue. Even in the preview on the control.

// Create the control...
IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.Maxicode bcmaxi = new IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.Maxicode();
bcmaxi.Resolution = IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.Resolutions.Custom;
bcmaxi.ResolutionCustomDPI = 600;

// Add the Maxi data.
bcmaxi.DataToEncode = maxi.ToString();

// Mode...
if (s.ShipTo.CountryId.Equals(EnumCountry.UnitedStates))
bcmaxi.EncodingMode = IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.EncodingModes.Mode2;
else
bcmaxi.EncodingMode = IDAutomation.Windows.Forms.Maxicode.EncodingModes.Mode3;

// Set to the picture box...
picMaxicode.Image = bcmaxi.Picture;

Acox,

Can you attach a screen shot or PDF of the barcode? What value is the resolution set to (for the control)?
