Barcode Height and Width

Hi There,

I am looking into Aspose Barcode for a project we are doing.

I am having difficulties fixing the barcode height and width to 1 inch x 2inch. I have written the following lines:


bb.CodeText =“2;345123;867530”;
bb.Pdf417ErrorLevel =Pdf417ErrorLevel.Level8;
bb.GraphicsUnit = GraphicsUnit.Millimeter;

bb.BarHeight = 25f;

bb.ImageHeight = 25f;
bb.ImageWidth = 50f;
bb.AutoSize = false;
bb.CodeLocation = CodeLocation.None;
bb.Pdf417Truncate = false;


bb.SymbologyType = Symbology.Pdf417;

MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream();

bb.Save(stream, System.Drawing.Imaging.ImageFormat.Bmp);

When I set the error level to 8, the barcode is truncated. When I set the barcode to error level 1 or 2, the width of the barcode is below 2 inch.

Thank you

Hi Fluid,

Thanks for your interest in our Aspose.BarCode for .NET product. You can avoid barcode truncation by setting xDimension property to 0.5f. Moreover, you can control barcode width by setting ImageWidth and xDimension properties. For more details, please visit documentation link below:
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/barcodenet/Manage+X+Dimension+and+Y+Dimension

In case of further assistance & comments, please let me know.

I tried setting the xDimension to 0.5f. However, I haven’t been able to fix the height at 25mm and width at 50mm.


Hi Fluid,

Thanks for your details. Please spare us a bit more time. We're working over your query and will get back to you soon.

We will inform you via this forum thread as soon as the new release is published.

We're sorry for your inconvenience.

Thank you. When do you think this fix will be available?

Are you able to provide a nightly build for this fix? We are evaluating your software and having this fix will make our purchase decision easier.
