What is new in this release?

The new version of Aspose.BarCode for Java 18.7.0 has been released. Aspose team is pleased to announce the new release of Aspose.BarCode for Java 18.7. This new version of the API introduces a more powerful API for BarCode generation. It gives users more power for generating BarCodes with desired information. Starting from Aspose.Barcode for Java 18.7, this release introduces a new BarCode generation API. The new API, represented by BarcodeGenerator class, is simple but powerful enough to give maximum control over Barcode generation as per requirements. With this enhanced API as compared to previous version of API i.e. BarcodeBuilder, you can generate and work with barcodes in more flexible ways. The new Barcode generation API, BarcodeGenerator, will replace the older BarcodeBuilder with subsequent versions. Salient features of this new Barcode generation includes

- Generation of Barcode with Restricted Barcode Size – If users have restricted requirements of barcode size, then users can set AutoSizeMode to Nearest and required barcode size. Barcode generator will calculate all other parameters like xDimension, AspectRatio, etc to fit barcode into desired size.
- Generating Barcode without Restricted Barcode Size – if users don’t have required size of Barcode to be generated, Users can set AutoSizeMode to None and set all generator parameters by yourself
- Getting Generated Barcode Size – if you just want to know the barcode size without saving image you can call method RecalculateValues() and get barcode size
- Units based Barcode Generation – All measurement values can be got and set in pixels, millimeters, inches in the same time. You can easily change the resolution of image and prepare the same barcode for printing, LCD screens or retina-displays.
- Grouping Properties by Barcode Type – Properties for specific barcode types are grouped. Such specific properties like QR_EncodeType of DataMatrix_Ecc are grouped by type to simplify all the API for new users.
- Getting Default Text for Generated Barcode – GeBarCodeGenearator has predefined default codetext, so you can just explore the default codetext format for the specific type.
