Hi,

I would like to export a barcode image.

Can I do that with RadBarcode ? Or is it just usable in xaml ? 

 

Thanks

Hi S├ębastien,

The barcode itself is UI component, not an image. If you want to "export" it as an image you need to use the native platform's UI rendering features.

this will take anything you have on the screen and turn it into an image, encoded to png/jpg/ect according to what that native platform supports. This is not exclusive to the RadBarcode, ti will be anything you want from the rendered UI.

I have written a custom demo that shows how to achieve this, here's a quick link https://github.com/LanceMcCarthy/CustomXamarinDemos/tree/master/RenderImage 

Please pay close attention to the DependencyService classes in each native project. That logic is what actually creates the image byte[] and returns it to the Xamarin.Forms logic..
