Generating QR Codes and Other Barcodes is Now Easy in .NET MAUI

Generating QR Codes and Other Barcodes is Now Easy in .NET MAUI

Syncfusion is happy to share that a new, powerful Barcode Generator has been included for the .NET MAUI platform in the 2022 Volume 1 release.

The .NET MAUI Barcode Generator control is straightforward, easy to use, and simple to integrate into your application. It encodes input data into machine-readable, industry-standard 1D and 2D barcodes, making it an excellent way to provide essential information in a compact format.

This blog will guide you through the key features and how to get started with our new .NET MAUI Barcode Generator control.

Key features

The key features of the .NET MAUI Barcode Generator are as follows:

  • Supports the popular two-dimensional Data Matrix code.

  • Display barcodes with or without human-readable text.
  • Customize the text style, spacing, and alignment.
  • Customize the barcode’s height, width, background color, and foreground color.

Let’s see how to generate one-dimensional or linear barcodes and QR codes using the Syncfusion .NET MAUI Barcode Generator control.

Add the .NET MAUI Barcode Generator to your app

Let’s see how to create a simple .NET MAUI app with the Barcode Generator control to demonstrate its primary usage.

Step 1: Create a .NET MAUI app.

First, create a new .NET MAUI app in Visual Studio.

Step 2: Install the NuGet packages.

The Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls are available in the NuGet Gallery. To add the SfBarcodeGenerator control to your project, open the NuGet package manager in Visual Studio. Search for Syncfusion.Maui.Barcodes and then install it.

Step 3: Handler registration.

The Syncfusion.Maui.Core NuGet package is a dependent package for all our Syncfusion .NET MAUI controls. In the MauiProgram.cs file, register the handler for Syncfusion core using the ConfigureSyncfusionCore() method.

Refer to the following code.

public static MauiApp CreateMauiApp()
{
  var builder = MauiApp.CreateBuilder();
  builder
   .UseMauiApp<App>()
   .ConfigureSyncfusionCore()
   .ConfigureFonts(fonts =>
   {
     fonts.AddFont("OpenSans-Regular.ttf", "OpenSansRegular");
   });
 
  return builder.Build();
}

Step 4: Import the namespace.

Then, import the Syncfusion.Maui.Barcode namespace in your XAML or C# code.

xmlns:barcode="clr-namespace:Syncfusion.Maui.Barcode;assembly=Syncfusion.Maui.Barcode"

Step 5: Initialize the Barcode Generator control.

Now, initialize the SfBarcodeGenerator control with the Value property.

<barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator Value="Syncfusion" />

Note: The default symbology of SfBarcodeGenerator is Code128.

Step 6: Initialize QR Code symbology.

You can set the symbology type to the Barcode Generator based on the input value by initializing the Symbology property.

In the following code example, the QR code is set as the barcode symbology.

<barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator Value="https://www.syncfusion.com/"
                            HeightRequest="250"
                            WidthRequest="250">
  <barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator.Symbology>
   <barcode:QRCode />
  </barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator.Symbology>
</barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator>

Step 7: Display input value.

Enable the ShowText property to display the provided input value below the barcode.

Refer to the following code example.

<barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator Value="https://www.syncfusion.com/"  ShowText="True" HeightRequest="250" WidthRequest="250">
 <barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator.Symbology>
  <barcode:QRCode />
 </barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator.Symbology>
</barcode:SfBarcodeGenerator>
