Setting PDF-417 Barcode Size in C#

C# PDF-417 barcode provides a set of barcode size settings to specify you PDF-417 barcodes. Please download C# barcode component and install, copy those following code to your Visual Studio:

PDF417 barcode = new PDF417();

barcode.PDF417DataMode = PDF417DataMode.Auto;

barcode.Data = "ONBARCODE";

Modify your PDF-417 barcodes by setting those following properties:


UOM is short for Unit of Measure, which is the unit of meature for all size related settings in the library. C# PDF-417 barcode provides 3 options: Pixel, Cm, and Inch. The default is Pixel.

barcode.UOM = UnitOfMeasure.PIXEL;

RowCount is the number of rows for PDF417. The value range is from 3 to 90. The default is 3 (float).

ColumnCount is the number of columns. The value range is from 1 to 30. The default is 5(float). Increase this value, if your data size is large.

barcode.RowCount = 9;

barcode.ColumnCount = 12;

PDF-417 X to Y Ratio

RowCount is the proportion of bar width and bar height. The default is 0.3333333f (float)

barcode.XtoYRatio = 0.222222f;

Barcode Width & Height

BarcodeWidth is the PDF-417 barcode image width. The default in C# PDF-417 barcode is 0 (float).

BarcodeHeight is the PDF-417 barcode image height. The default in C# PDF-417 barcode is 0 (float).

barcode.BarcodeWidth = 0;

barcode.BarcodeHeigth =0;
