			Reader reader = new Reader();
			reader.RegistrationName = "demo";
			reader.RegistrationKey = "demo";

			// Set barcode type to find
			reader.BarcodeTypesToFind.All = true;
			// We recommend to use specific barcode types to avoid false positives, e.g.:
			// reader.BarcodeTypesToFind.QRCode = true;
			// reader.BarcodeTypesToFind.Code39 = true;

            NOTE: We can read barcodes from specific page to increase performance.
            For sample please refer to "Decoding barcodes from PDF by pages" program.

			// Read barcodes
			FoundBarcode[] barcodes = reader.ReadFrom(ImageFile);

			foreach (FoundBarcode barcode in barcodes)

			// Cleanup
			reader.Dispose();
