class Windows OCR MBS WinFrameworks Plugin 23.1 ❌ No ✅ Yes ❌ No ❌ No Desktop, Console & Web
Provides optical character recognition (OCR) functionality.

Requires Windows 10 (introduced in 10.0.10240.0)

o use the OCR capabilities of the OcrEngineMBS class in your app, call the RecognizeAsync method. When you call the RecognizeAsync method of the OcrEngine class, the method returns an WindowsOCRResultMBS object, which contains the recognized text and its size and position. The result is split into lines, and the lines are split into words.

Our plugin class allows you to run the OCR operation either synchronously or asynchronously. The asynchronous operation runs in the background on a separated preemptive thread, so your application GUI is not blocked and this is the preferred way.

Alternatively, you can use the synchronous versions, which block the GUI.

This class has no sub classes.
