Cannot set barcode image size with specific DPI

Hello Aspose Team,

i need to generate 2D barcode ( DataMatrix) with following specifications:

  • Image Width 213
  • Image Height 213
  • X Resolution 600
  • Y Resolution 600
  • Resolution Unit inches
  • see ImageExamples.zip -> source.tiff

I’am using Aspose.BarCode library for dotnet core v21.2.0

Examples:
ImageExamples.zip (1.9 KB)

My Source Code:

BarcodeGenerator  generator = new BarcodeGenerator (EncodeTypes.DataMatrix, "10014490");
generator.Parameters.Resolution = 600f;
generator.Parameters.Barcode.Padding.Top.Millimeters = 0f;

generator.Parameters.AutoSizeMode = AutoSizeMode.None;
generator.Parameters.ImageHeight.Inches = 213;
generator.Parameters.ImageWidth.Inches = 213;
generator.Save("output.tiff", BarCodeImageFormat.Tiff);

For me its impossible to reach desired result.
Can you please explain me, how to configure BarcodeGenerator class to get desired result?

Thank you & best regards

You code has two problems. First, ImageHeight/ImageWidth can be use only with AutoSizeMode.Nearest and AutoSizeMode.Interpolation. And you can have code like this

BarcodeGenerator generator = new BarcodeGenerator(EncodeTypes.DataMatrix, “10014490”);
generator.Parameters.Resolution = 600f;
generator.Parameters.Barcode.Padding.Top.Millimeters = 0f;
generator.Parameters.Barcode.Padding.Bottom.Millimeters = 0f;
generator.Parameters.Barcode.Padding.Left.Millimeters = 0f;
generator.Parameters.Barcode.Padding.Right.Millimeters = 0f;
generator.Parameters.Barcode.CodeTextParameters.Location = CodeLocation.None;
generator.Parameters.AutoSizeMode = Aspose.BarCode.Generation.AutoSizeMode.Nearest;
//generator.Parameters.AutoSizeMode = Aspose.BarCode.Generation.AutoSizeMode.Interpolation;
generator.Parameters.ImageHeight.Inches = 10;
generator.Parameters.ImageWidth.Inches = 10;
generator.Save(“output.tiff”, BarCodeImageFormat.Tiff);

The second problem is too big image. 213x213 inches image with 600 dpi consists from (213*600)^2 pixels, and because one pixel is stored in 4 bytes(32 bits) it requires 65 Gb of memory. But Windows cannot operate with image that uses more than 4 Gb of memory.
