QR Code VB.NET Generator Size Setting Tutorial

After QR Code VB.NET Generator installation, get it ready in VB.NET by placing the following statement:

Dim qrcode As OnBarcode.Barcode. QRCode

qrcode = New OnBarcode.Barcode. QRCode


There are 40 versions for QR Code size setting. Different versions stand for different numbers of modules in one QR Code.

Sample usage:

qrcode.Version = OnBarcode.Barcode.QRCodeVersion.V1


UOM is the controller of size setting unit. Pixel, Cm, and Inch are provided as its options. The default value of UOM is Pixel. For example, type the following statement to select Pixel as the unit of size setting measure:

Sample usage:

qrcode.UOM = OnBarcode.Barcode.UnitOfMeasure.PIXEL


Property X (Type: Float; Default: 1) is used for the module width and height setting.

Sample usage:

qrcode.X = 2

BarCodeHeight & BarCodeWidth

Property BarCodeHeight (Type: Float; Default: 0) and Property BarCodeWidth (Type: Float; Default: 0) to set the size of the whole image.

Sample usage:

qrcode.BarcodeHeight = 175

qrcode.BarcodeWidth = 175


When the value of X, BarCodeWidth, and BarCodeHeight conflict with each other, Property AutoResize (Type: bool; Default: False) should be enabled to solve the problem and make the QR Code 100% compatible with its symbology specification and ISO 16022. See QR Code Barcode Size in VB.NET to know more usage of AutoResize.

Sample usage:

qrcode.X = 2

qrcode.BarcodeHeight = 60

qrcode.AutoResize = True

TopMargin, BottomMargin, LeftMargin, & RightMargin

Using QR Code VB.NET Generator, a quiet zone with 10X width will be generated automatically at each side of the QR Code. When wider quiet zone is needed, you can increase the value of properties LeftMargin (Type: Float; Default: 0) and RightMargin (Type: Float; Default: 0). You can also create margins using TopMargin (Type: Float; Default: 0) and BottomMargin (Type: Float; Default: 0).

Sample usage:

qrcode.TopMargin = 10

qrcode.BottomMargin = 10

qrcode.LeftMargin = 10

qrcode.RightMargin = 10
