ISBT128 Concat Mode Select an option for concatenating pairs of ISBT code types -

• Concat Mode Never - Do not concatenate pairs of ISBT codes encountered.
• Concat Mode Always - There must be two ISBT codes in order to decode and perform concatenation. Does not decode single ISBT barcodes.
• Concat Mode Auto - Decodes and concatenates pairs of ISBT codes immediately. If only a single ISBT barcode is present, the device must decode the barcode the number of times set via Redundancy - Code128 before transmitting its data to confirm that there is no additional ISBT barcode.
decoder_code128_isbt128_concat_mode 0 - Concat Mode Never
1 - Concat Mode Always

false
Security Level There are four levels of decode security for Code 128 barcodes. As the quality of barcodes decreases, implementing an increased level of security compensates and helps improve decoding success. There is an inverse relationship between scanner aggressiveness and security. Zebra recommends choosing carefully the level of security necessary for any given application -

• Security Level 0 - Allows the scanner to operate in its most aggressive state, while providing sufficient security in decoding most "in-spec" barcodes.
• Security Level 1 - Eliminates most decode failures.
• Security Level 2 - Select this option if Security level 1 fails to eliminate decode failures.
• Security Level 3 - If Security Level 2 is selected and decode failures still occur, select this security level. Be advised, selecting this option is an extreme measure against mis-decoding severely out-of-spec barcodes. Selecting this security level significantly impairs the decoding ability of the scanner. If this level of security is required, try to improve the quality of the barcodes.
decoder_code128_security_level 0 - Security Level 0

2 - Security Level 2
3 - Security Level 3

Datamatrix

API Decoder Name: decoder_datamatrix

Decoder Signature

API Decoder Name: decoder_signature
API Decoder Values: true, false

Decoder Signature, also known as Signature Capture, is a special barcode format that captures an area of a document (such as a signature) as an image. It is marked by two identical bar patterns placed on either side of the capture area. The bar pattern extends the full height of that area, for example:

For help creating a Signature Capture barcode like the one above, refer to the Decoder Signature Guide.

Note: Handling large image data - Since the data size of a single image (which can be 1280 x 800 bytes = 1000 kb) can exceed the size limit of a single intent, DataWedge supports image data delivery via Android FileProvider API. For Decoder Signature type decodes, all image data are delivered using this approach.
     • It is expected that the user application copy the image files from the given URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) as soon as possible since DataWedge only keeps a maximum of 2 sets of decoded images before deleting them to create new images in the internal memory.
     • Refer to the Signature Capture sample application for a code sample on handling image data from an Android client app.

• 1 BPP - For a black and white image.

Decode Lengths (for reference)

The allowable decode lengths are specified by Length1 and Length2 as follows:

     • Variable length - Decode barcodes containing any number of characters:
          ◦ Set both Length1 and Length2 to "0" (zero)
     • Range - Decode a barcode with a specific length range from a-b:
          ◦ Set Length1 to "a" (the lower bound) and set Length2 to "b" (the upper bound)
     • Two Discrete Lengths - Decode only barcodes containing either of two specific lengths:
          ◦ Set Length2 as the shorter length and Length1 as the longer one
     • One Discrete Length - Decode only barcodes containing a specific length:
          ◦ Set both Length1 and Length2 to the desired (non-zero) length
