Today we have some news for you in the barcoding domain: we now support a new barcode symbology, and we have simplified our plugin offer.
As we have a single plugin for all linear barcodes, we decided to regroup all 2D barcode plugins into a single plugin.
New: Aztec Code reading and writing
GdPicture.NET Document Imaging SDK welcomes a new 2D barcode symbology with reading and writing features: Aztec Code barcode.
The Aztec Code symbology has been standardized and is available as ISO/IEC 24778:2008.
It is described as a two-dimensional matrix symbology whose symbols are nominally square, made up of square modules on a square grid, with a square bullseye pattern at their center.
Aztec Code symbols can encode from small to large amounts of data with user-selected percentages of error correction.
Aztec Code is a barcode widely used for transport ticketings like airline boarding passes and train tickets.
You will find the reading and writing methods in our documentation.
A new and all-inclusive 2D barcode plugin
Instead of creating another plugin for the Aztec Code barcode, as we have previously done for DataMatrix, Qr-Code, and PDF417, we have decided to create a single plugin for all 2D barcodes.
