Change scan shape

Post by Dominik » Thu Mar 21, 2019 2:27 pm

We are a German car company and are impressed by their virtual barcode scanner software.
Unfortunately, we have the problem that the scan area as a circle is error prone because we have several barcodes on one page.
Is there a way to change the shape into a rectangle or determine yourself?
We use Windows 7 Pro and have the most recent version installed.

I would be very happy to receive an answer from you!

Yours sincerely

Hi Dominik,

We are glad you enjoy our software.
Sadly for this tool there is no way to change the detection area selector.
This is everything you can toggle with our virtual barcode scanner software:

This application will run in the system tray.
Double click on the icon to begin the detection.
When a barcode is detected, the detection ring turns green.
Once your barcode is detected, you can do some actions :
- CTRL + SHIFT + S : sends the barcode to a window
- CTRL + SHIFT + D : displays the barcode in a pop-up
- CTRL + SHIFT + C : copy the barcode in the clipboard
You can adjust the size of the ring by holding CTRL + SHIFT and
turn the mouse wheel.
Right click on the icon will make a menu appear where you can
do some actions automatically, choose the window where to send the
barcode, or simply quit the program.

If you are more interested in our barcode reading engine then I suggest you look into our GdPicture.NET SDK as it will allow you to read any specific barcode symbology by defining a rectangle region of interest to scan for barcodes on your page. For this you can find more information here:
