C++ API Reference - CBarcodeReader Video Methods


StartFrameDecoding

Start a new thread to decode barcodes from the inner frame queue with specific frame decoding setting passed in.

int dynamsoft::dbr::CBarcodeReader::StartFrameDecoding (const int maxQueueLength, const int maxResultQueueLength, const int width, const int height, const int stride, const ImagePixelFormat format, const char* pTemplateName = "") 

Parameters

[in] maxQueueLength The max number of frames waiting for decoding.
[in] maxResultQueueLength The max number of frames whose results (text result/localization result) will be kept.
[in] width The width of the frame image in pixels.
[in] height The height of the frame image in pixels.
[in] stride The stride (or scan width) of the frame image.
[in] format The image pixel format used in the image byte array.
[in] pTemplateNameOptional The template name.

Return value

Returns error code. Possible return(s): DBR_OK; DBRERR_FRAME_DECODING_THREAD_EXISTS; DBRERR_PARAMETER_VALUE_INVALID.
You can call GetErrorString to get detailed error message.

Remark

If no template name is specified, current runtime settings will be used.

Code Snippet

CBarcodeReader* reader = new CBarcodeReader();
reader->InitLicense("t0260NwAAAHV***************");
reader->StartFrameDecoding(2, 10, 1024, 720, 720, IPF_BINARY, "");
