Best BarCodeOptions for detecting dense PDF417 barcodes on iOS using Camera.MAUI?

As of my last knowledge update in January 2022, there isn’t a specific framework named “Camera.MAUI” that I’m aware of. However, I can provide you with general guidance on detecting dense PDF417 barcodes on iOS using Xamarin.Forms or Xamarin.iOS, as well as some considerations for barcode scanning.

To detect dense PDF417 barcodes on iOS using Xamarin.Forms or Xamarin.iOS, you can consider using a barcode scanning library that supports PDF417. One popular choice is the ZXing.Net library, which is a cross-platform barcode scanning library for Xamarin.

Here’s a basic example of how you might use ZXing.Net to scan PDF417 barcodes in a Xamarin.Forms project:

  1. Install the ZXing.Net.Mobile NuGet package:
   Install-Package ZXing.Net.Mobile
  1. In your Xamarin.Forms project, create a content page with a ZXingScannerView:
   <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
   <ContentPage xmlns="http://xamarin.com/schemas/2014/forms"

       <zxing:ZXingScannerView x:Name="zxingScannerView"

  1. In your code-behind (C#), handle the scan result:
   using Xamarin.Forms;
   using ZXing.Net.Mobile.Forms;

   namespace YourNamespace
       public partial class YourPage : ContentPage
           public YourPage()

           private void OnScanResult(Result result)
               if (result != null)
                   Device.BeginInvokeOnMainThread(async () =>
                       await DisplayAlert("Scanned Barcode", result.Text, "OK");
  1. Request camera permissions in your iOS project.

Please note that the specific options for detecting dense PDF417 barcodes may vary depending on the library you choose. ZXing.Net does support PDF417, but it’s essential to refer to the library’s documentation for any specific configuration options related to PDF417 scanning.

Always check for updates and new libraries as the Xamarin ecosystem evolves, and new libraries may become available. Additionally, for the most current information, check the official documentation and community forums related to Xamarin and barcode scanning.
