    I have a little problem with the RadBarcode QR-Code. I have build an webapplication ( c#) to generate buisness cards and on the back of the buisness card is an vcard QR Code image. This works fine and i can scan the code with my Windows, Apple and Android device. My problem is just, that the german umlauts (üöä) isnt in the generated QR Code. I've been experimenting with the settings.
    My best result is with ECIMode = ISO8859_1En, Apple and Android works but the Windows device don´t work.
    With no ECIMode the german umlauts dont show on any device.

    Is there any solutions or workarounds that i can do?

    Hello Felix,

    We have just tested the ISO8859_1 (not ISO8859_1En) with text like "üöä" and it reads correct in both android and windows phones.

    Try out different scanning applications in your windows device, because there could be problem in the barcode scanner itself.
