Regular Expression Matching
A new feature in Version 6.2.0 is Regular Expression matching, but what does it mean and what use is it?
A regular expression is a pattern that can be used to match against a barcode string. For example, if you set the Pattern property to “^ABC[0-9]+XYZ$” then the toolkit will only report barcodes that start with “ABC”, followed by one or more digits and end with “XYZ”. This useful because you can reduce the chance of false positive readings or ignore barcodes from other sources. If you know the format of the barcode string you expect then it’s always worth setting this property.
