Can the scanning window be narrowed down?

Is it possible to define only a portion of what is captured by the camera to be considered for decoding? Provide a red line in the middle of the target area, and dim the surrounding area?

Nevermind. ZXing.Net is awesome. I see the ResultPoints property which i'll make use of to figure out if the barcode is in the center of my scan area. As far as drawing the scan area, i understand that would be unique for the different platforms. I'll figure that out on my own.

You have to crop the captured image before decoding it with zxing. Drawing a red line, dimming the area outside of the scanning windows etc. has to be
implemented yourself in your app. ZXing takes only the image and tries to find a barcode.
