Draw QR-Code in the receipt RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I have below code for printing barcode in the receipt. How to do if we are using QR-Code??

    public void Draw(PrintEngine engine, float yPos, Graphics graphics, Rectangle elementBounds)
       Font m_BarcodeFont = new Font(Print_Param.barCodeFont_Name, Print_Param.barCodeFont_Height);
       Brush br = new SolidBrush(Color.Black);

       // the Asterisk (*) used to delimit barcode
       graphics.DrawString("*" + Barcode + "*", m_BarcodeFont, br,
                    elementBounds.Left, yPos, new StringFormat());

  • Hi Raymond,

    QR Code is quite different than barcode. While in barcode, each character has its own bar pattern and the entire barcode is constructed with these fixed patterns, the QR Code is an encrypted binary matrix of data, there is no certain pattern for a certain character. So while it is possible to represent bar patterns with a barcode font (the code you provided utilized this feature), it is not possible for QR Code. Instead, you need to generate the QR Code yourself, by utilizing GDI+ or something else; or use a QR Code generator library, e.g. the QrCode.Net

  • Here is QR Code generation in C# with sample code. I have no idea if it helps you or not.
