Classification Using Bar Codes



If you want to use a bar code for classification:

  1. Create a bar code locator on project level. (Locators on project level will be executed before any classification takes place.)
  2. Create a field on project level (e.g., named "Barcode").
  3. Connect the field with the locator.
  4. Add the following code to the project script:
    Private Sub Document_BeforeClassifyXDoc(pXDoc As CASCADELib.CscXDocument, _
                                            bSkip As Boolean)
        Dim BarcodeText As String
        BarcodeText = pXDoc.Fields.ItemByName("Barcode").Text
        If BarcodeText = "12345" Then
        ElseIf BarcodeText = "67890" Then
            ' continue with normal classification
        End If
    End Sub

The Reclassify method can be called several times during processing in order to classify a Document to a different class and perform the extraction again. Note that to avoid endless loops, the use of the Reclassify method is limited; it can be called once per classification step and up to 100 times per extraction step.

In addition, the event has a new optional parameter, Confidence, that is used to set the confidence value for the Document after reclassification.
