Public API and Backward Incompatible Changes

New public enumeration WiFiEncryptionType was added to specify various encryption types for the WiFi QR Code entities

This enumeration keeps supported WiFi encryption types.

New public enumeration

    /// <summary>
    /// Represents WiFi Encryption type.
    /// </summary>
    [Obfuscation(Feature = "internalization", Exclude = true, ApplyToMembers = true)]
    [Flags]
    public enum WiFiEncryptionType
    {
        /// <summary>Represents no encryption WiFi type.</summary>
        None = 0,

        /// <summary>Represents WiFi with the WPA encryption type.</summary>
        WPA = 1,

        /// <summary>Represents WiFi with the WPA-EAP encryption type.</summary>
        WPAEAP = 2,

        /// <summary>Represents WiFi with the WPA/WPA2 encryption type.</summary>
        WPAWPA2 = 3,

        /// <summary>Represents WiFi with the WEP encryption type.</summary>
        WEP = 4,
    }

Public class WiFi was added to provide WiFi QR Code object properties

Class [WiFi] contains following properties to get or set.

The following example demonstrates how to create WiFi QR Code standard entry.

Generate signature preview

public static void Run()
{
    using (Signature signature = new Signature(filePath))
    {
        // create WiFi object
        WiFi wifi  = new WiFi()
        {
            SSID = "GuestNetwork!",
            Encryption = WiFiEncryptionType.WPAWPA2,
            Password = "guest",
            Hidden = false
        };
        // create options
        QrCodeSignOptions options = new QrCodeSignOptions
        {
            EncodeType = QrCodeTypes.QR,
            // setup Data property to MeCard instance
            Data = wifi,
            // set right bottom corner
            HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Left,
            VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Center,
            Width = 100,
            Height = 100,
            Margin = new Padding(10)
        };

        // sign document to file
        signature.Sign(outputFilePath, options);
        Console.WriteLine($"\nSource document signed successfully with {signResult.Succeeded.Count} signature(s).\nFile saved at {outputFilePath}.");
    }
}
