Hi, we have an extremely short term assignment to get a USB-based bar code reader working. My question is this - all the recognition demos assume an image exists. My question is, does aspose barcode provide a means to automatically link a USB scanner to its libraries to acquire that image or do we need to write separate software to acquire the image. We do not have the scanner yet (on order) - would appreciate any insight on this newbie question. Thanks.
Thank you for your inquiry.
I am afraid, at the moment Aspose.BarCode does not provide the means to connect to a barcode scanner for recognition purposes. You need to write your own logic to acquire the barcode image from a scanner and pass it to Aspose.BarCode API for recognition.
Yes you are right, Aspose.BarCode is a class library that can recognize the barcodes from a verity of digital documents (Pdf, MS Word/Excel). But at the core, Aspose.BarCode component extracts the barcode information from image files (or an image stored in memory).
In case you have further queries or comments, please feel free to write back.
