Hi,

In my country the ID card use a PDF417 barcode, I am trying to develop an mobile app in order to read it, but I failed using the component in Xamarin Studio.

Here you can find a sample of the barcode

PDF417 support isn't perfect. The java and C++ guys of the original zxing project do a great job at the moment to improve the PDF417 scanning feature.
After they finished their work I will migrate the java code to ZXing.Net.
At the moment you need an image with a better quality to get the decoding result.

The improved PDF417 decoding part is ported. Next version (0.12 or so) will include it.
You can try it out if you build your own version of the library from source code repository.
