Data Matrix Barcode Generating Library for .NET - DataMatrix Information
Data Matrix is a square or rectangular matrix (2D) barcode symbology used in aerospace, air transport, and national security especially for labeling small electronic components. Data Matrix codes are usually printed on labels and letters, while occasionally, Data Matrix barcodes are marked directly onto components with various methods such as industrial ink-jet, dot-peen marking, laser marking, and electrolytic chemical etching.
.NET Data Matrix Generator encodes:
  • 128 ASCII characters
  • Extended ASCII (ASCII characters 128-255, in accordance with ISO 8859-1)

Install and register DataMatrix.Barcode creator component for .NET

Before generating Data Matrix in .NET, you need to install:
  • Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP
  • .NET 2.0, 3.0 or greater version
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2005/2008/2010
  • Avapose.Barcode for .NET Winforms

Embed Data Matrix 2D Barcode Generator into .NET WinForms Applications

  1. Create a new project in your Visual Studio;
  2. Copy Avapose.matrixbarcode.winforms.dll to your project folder; (You need not to copy .dll to .NET bin directory, because Visual Studio will do so)
  3. Add MatrixWinControl to your Visual Studio Toolbox;
  4. Find Component MatrixWinControl in the Toolbox, then drag and drop it to your forms;
  5. Activate the Property Window and change the Matrixbarcode to Datamatrix;
  6. Customize the generated barcode accordingly.

Generate and print Data Matrix barcode using .NET 2D barcode generating library

  1. Create a new project in your Visual Studio;
  2. Add Avapose.matrixbarcode.winforms.dll to the project reference;
  3. Copy the following sample code to the project for a quick barcode generation, you can make further customization using related properties:

C# code

using Avapose.matrixbarcode
Matrix Datamatrix = new Matrix();
Datamatrix.MatrixBarcode = MatrixBarcode.Datamatrix
Datamatrix.BarcodeData = "Avapose Data Matrix";
Datamatrix.BarcodeWidth = 175;
Datamatrix.BarcodeHeight = 50;
Datamatrix.ResizeBarcode = true;
Datamatrix.DrawBarcodeImage("c:\\ datamatrix.gif");

VB code

Dim Datamatrix As Avapose.matrixbarcode.Matrix = New Avapose.matrixbarcode.Matrix()
Datamatrix.MatrixBarcode = Avapose.matrixbarcode.MatrixBarcode.Datamatrix
Datamatrix.BarcodeData = "Avapose Data Matrix"
Datamatrix.BarcodeWidth = 175
Datamatrix.BarcodeHeight = 50
Datamatrix.ResizeBarcode = True
Datamatrix.DrawBarcodeImage("c:/datamatrix.gif")
