Good Morning, Im having slight confusion when trying to create a custom commoditiy for loyalty cards. I've read the developers handbook and I still have been able to figure it out. Please in your answer provide an example. Please illustrate; 1) Whats wrong with my code? 2)How does the path to the database work with the loyalty card finder 3)What data information should be stored in the database

Thank you!

private void processImage()
        string imagePath = Path.Combine(Freconfig.GetSamplesFolder(), "homedepot2.jpg");

        // Create recognizer
        ReceiptCapture.IReceiptRecognizer recognizer = engineLoader.Engine.CreateReceiptRecognizer();

        ReceiptCapture.ICommodityTrainer loyalty = engineLoader.Engine.OpenCommodityTrainer("C:\\Users\\Jonathan Persaud\\Desktop\\trialRun\\loyaltycard", 1);//Step 1
        loyalty.CreateCommodityInfo("name", "SKU", "CouponName"); //Step 2
        loyalty.CreateEtalon("C:\\Users\\Jonathan Persaud\\Desktop\\trialRun\\loyaltycard");//Step 3

        ReceiptCapture.ICommodityEtalon commodityEt = engineLoader.Engine.OpenCommodityEtalon("C:\\Users\\Jonathan Persaud\\Desktop\\trialRun\\loyaltycard");//Using commodity Step 1


            // Add image file to recognizer
            displayMessage("Loading image...");
            recognizer.AddImageFile(imagePath, null);
            ReceiptCapture.IImageDocument imageDoc = recognizer.Receipts.Item(0).ImageDocument;

            // Recognize document

            // Save results
            displayMessage("Saving results...");

            // Export the first recognized receipt
            if (recognizer.Receipts.Count > 0)
                string exportPath = Path.Combine(Freconfig.GetSamplesFolder(), "ReceiptCapture.xml");
                recognizer.Receipts[0].ExportToXml(exportPath, null);

                // Open it in an external program
        catch (Exception error)
            MessageBox.Show(this, error.Message, this.Text, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error);
            // Close recognizer

    private void processWithEngine()
            // Setup Receipt Capture Engine

            // Process sample image
        catch (Exception error)
            MessageBox.Show(this, error.Message, this.Text, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error);

Hi, have you already seen the Line Item Lookup API Demo tool (the Samples folder -> Demo Tools -> Line Item Lookup API Demo)? It shows how to train a commodity model and use it to find the specific products in the receipt.

I dont seem to see that in my sample folder, is this tool used in the Receipt Capture SDK? and if not could you possibly point me a to link where I can reference this Line Item API tool.

Thank you!

Possible you use the beta version of the program, and this Demo tool was added to the official version of ABBYY Receipt Capture SDK 1 R1 GM, build#: Please ask your sales manager to provide you with the link to download the new version.
