This page provides a guide for use QrCodeGeoControl. (After check-in 15097)

Namespace: Gma.QrCodeNet.Encoding.Windows.WPF


public class QrCodeGeoControl : Control


QrCodeGeoControl is WPF user control.

It is inheritance of WPF Control, It construct Geometry with StreamGeometry. Use Path's margin to represent Quiet Zone. Margin is recalculated at ArrangeOverride.

Theme for this user control is stored under themes folder, file name Generic.xaml.

It might have performance hit once QrCode's version is too large, as at that time, vector object will be way too many. Also memory usage will be growing according to QrCode's version. (QrCode version has described here)

Visual effect like colour, quiet zone size will be handle very easily. Thus it won't have Freeze method compare to image control.


Name Description
QrCodeGeoControl Initialize a new instance of QrCodeGeoControl class.


Name Description
Lock Lock class, changes to Text or ErrorCorrectLevel dependency property won't update QrCode
Unlock Unlock class and re-encode. then update Geometry
OnQrMatrixChanged Raises after re-encode QrMatrix


Name Description
LightBrush Dependency property for light module colour
DarkBrush Dependency property for dark module colour
QuietZoneModule Dependency property for QuietZoneModules enum
ErrorCrrectLevel Dependency property for ErrorCorrectionLevel enum
Text Dependency property for input text string
QrGeometry Dependency property for Geometry group(Read only)


Name Description
QrMatrixChanged Occur after QrCode re-encode


<QrCodeGeoControl Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="1" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Margin="0" Name="qrControl" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Text="test" LightBrush="#FF00CAEC" DarkBrush="#FF9F8100"></QrCodeGeoControl>

qrControl.Text = "QrCode.Net";

BitMatrix qrMatrix = qrControl.GetQrMatrix();  //Qr bit matrix for input string "QrCode.Net"

qrControl.ErrorCorrectLevel = ErrorCrrectionLevel.M;  //It won't re-encode qrCode. 
qrControl.Text = "lock test";
qrMatrix = qrControl.GetQrMatrix();  //Bit matrix return from method is still for input string "QrCode.Net"
qrControl.Unlock();   //Re-encode and recreate Geometry.

qrControl.DarkBrush = Brushes.Blue;  //It will change Path's fill colour. visual change immediately.
