Imaging, Rotation & Sizing

Aspose.BarCode for Android via Java allows the developers to manipulate barcode label borders, border colors, style, margins and width. It also provides the ability to modify barcode image color, background color and bar color.

You can also rotate barcode images to any angle and produce high quality images with anti-aliasing. In addition to this, you can set customized resolution for the resultant barcode images while saving them to any of the supported image formats.

Customizing Symbologies & Appearance

Android barcode API allows you to easily customize the barcodes by specifying different kinds of symbologies, setting code text (data to be encoded to barcode image) and appearance related properties like font, background color, foreground color, as well as alignment and location (hide, above, below). You can also easily manage caption settings such as font, background color, foreground color, alignment and location (hide, above, below).
