Hello Mahesh A,

The QRCode widget does not support returning the generated bit array for the value. Could you clarify why this would be needed?

Hello Daniel ,
           Thanks for your reply.
My main aim is to Save the generated QR code in byte array format in Sql server database.
Is it possible to do so using kendoQRCode control?

Thanks,

Hello,

How would the array be used after it is saved in the database? As I mentioned in my previous reply, the widget does not support returned the generated bit array for the value but if the scenario is valid then we will consider exposing a method that can be used for this purpose.

Hi there,

I need the same functionality for my application. I need to save the generated QRCode bitmap into the database. Is it possible?
The reason I need to do this. The QRCodes can be shared by multiple applications and most of the other applications are old ones developed in VS 2008, they just need to query the database to display the QRCode image.

Please give me a quick reply. I am licensed user. Thanks

Hello,

Currently it is possible to get the bit matrix with the kendo.dataviz.QRCodeFunctions.encodeData function e.g.
var qr = $("#myQRCode").data("kendoQRCode");
var matrix = kendo.dataviz.QRCodeFunctions.encodeData(qr.value(),
    qr.options.errorCorrection, qr.options.encoding);
We will expose a method on the QR widget if this becomes a common scenario.

How do I recreate the image using the bit matrix? Or How do I display the same in an image control. I need to allow users to download QRCode image?

Hello,

If you wish to export the qr code to an image then I would suggest to use the approach demonstrated for the chart in this code library. With the bit matrix you will need to manually calculate the module size and draw the modules on the server.

Can you please explain what do you mean by "With the bit matrix you will need to manually calculate the module size and draw the modules on the server."?

I have generated the QR Code with size 100. The
bit matrix i get after using the function kendo.dataviz.QRCodeFunctions.encodeData  is a 21 X 21 matrix. When I used the matrix to draw the bitmap I am getting a very small image. How do I get of size 100?

Hello again,

I posted my reply in the support ticket that you have opened on the same topic. For convenience I am pasting it below and I attached the project.

What I meant was that the bit matrix returned by the method does not represent an image but the information that is needed to draw the qr code - the positions of the dark and light modules. Therefore if you wish to use this approach you will need to post this matrix to the server and draw the dark and light modules based on the total size and the matrix values(1 for dark and 0 for light). I attached a sample project that demonstrates this scenario.

Daniel
