How to create rectangular 16x48 DataMatrix Industry code (pdfChip 1.2, Fall 2016)

pdfChip supports over 100 symbologies (types of barcodes and matrix codes). In addition, a set of about 100 specific barcode object parameters – plus the extra list of special options in the "options" parameter – make it possible to create many more specialized subtypes of barcodes.

This article illustrates how to create a DataMatrix code of type "Industry", with a rectangular size of "16x48" cells.

The special parameters necessary to create a DataMatrix code of type "Industry" with a rectangular size of 16x48 cells are:

  • dm_format: defines "Industry" as the format to be used here
  • dm_size: sets the desired size, in this case 16 by 48 cells
  • dm_rectangular: sets the form of the DataMatrix code to be rectangular
