Version 188.8.131.52 of the Barcode Reader SDK Released
Version 184.108.40.206 of the Barcode Reader SDK has now been released. This includes an update to the Debenu PDF library (version 12.12), a small fix that allows the reading of 2-column compact-PDF417 barcodes and a advanced setting to help debug Code 128 bar codes (see below). As ever, the release is available through our downloads page.
The new property called Code128DebugMode allows developers to look at the structure of a Code 128 barcode and disable the checksum validation. The property can take 3 values:
0 – This is the default. The checksum character must be valid and the value will be displayed as normal.
1 – Checksum validation disabled and the data portion of the barcode will be assumed to be correct and will be displayed as normal.
2 – Checksum validation disabled and the data will be displayed as comma separated integer values. The checksum calculated from the data will be displayed in brackets after the actual checksum value.
