How to Get Detailed Barcode Information

The Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK provides APIs for you to get the detailed barcode information like checksum digit, start/stop characters, error correction level, etc. To learn more about what information you can get, see the following API links:

Here we take QR Code as example and show how to get the version and model of a QR Code.

What is the Version of a QR Code?

QRCode Version Modules
Version 1 21 x 21
Version 2 25 x 25
Version N (17 + N x 4) x (17 + N x 4)
Version 40 177 x 177

What is the Model of a QR Code?

QRCode Model Description
Model 1 The original QR Code. It is a code capable of coding 1,167 numerals with its maximum version being 14 (73 x 73 modules).
Model 2 Created by improving Model 1 so that this code can be read smoothly even if it is distorted in some way. This code can encode up to 7,089 numerals with its maximum version being 40 (177 x 177 modules). Today, the term QRCode usually refers to QRCode Model 2.
