Cannot recognize CODE39 barcode

Mar 22, 2013 at 2:59 AM
I'm doing evaluation of different software for bar code recognition. I'm using the WindowsFormDemo project as the starting point for ZXing.Net and it cannot figure out the CODE39 tiff image.

I don't want to draw the conclusion that ZXing.Net does not work because of my simple try. Could someone help to take a look at the image and see why the WindowsFormDemo cannot extract the barcode? Is that due to the image, or due to the some bug?

Many thanks!

Thank you for trying out this project and for the feedback.
Before I can help you, I need the sample image which you have tried.

The barcode can be decoded successfully. But the current demo tries to decode an extended Code39, which fails.
I made some small changes with revision 85725.
With that changes the correct result is returned.
I will release version 0.11 soon which will include the changes.

I verified and the latest revision and it can decode correctly. Thanks a lot!
