Android Data Matrix Barcode Generator Introduction

Android Data Matrix barcode API is a Data Matrix generator for Android apps, designed for creating Data Matrix barcode on Android platform.

  • Android Data Matrix SDK is entirely developed for Android platform
  • Android Data Matrix generator is completely built in Android 1.5 SDK
  • Developer Licenses for this Android Data Matrix library are royalty-free and perpetual

Data Matrix code is a two-dimensional matrix barcode consisting of black and white "cells" or modules arranged in either a square or rectangular pattern. The information to be encoded can be text or raw data. Usual data size is from a few bytes up to 2 kilobytes. The length of the encoded data depends on the symbol dimension used. Error correction codes are added to increase symbol strength: even if they are partially damaged, they can still be read. A Data Matrix symbol can store up to 2,335 alphanumeric characters.

OnBarcode provides several Data Matrix Generator library, SDK and software, including Data Matrix .NET, Data Matrix C#, Data Matrix Java, Data Matrix VB.NET, Data Matrix ASP.NET, Data Matrix iPhone, Data Matrix iPad, Data Matrix Generator.

 

Data Matrix Valid Data Scope

Android Barcode Data Matrix supports:

  • all 128 characters of ASCII
  • values 128-255 in accordance with ISO 8859-1. There are referred to as extended ASCII.

 

How to generate Data Matrix barcodes in your Android application?

Generating barcode Data Matrix in Java Class example

	DataMatrix barcode = new DataMatrix();
	
	/*
	   Data Matrix Valid data char set:
	        ASCII values 0 - 127 in accordance with the US national version of ISO/IEC 646
	            ASCII values 128 - 255 in accordance with ISO 8859-1. These are referred to as extended ASCII.
	
	*/
	barcode.setData("112233445566");
	
	barcode.setDataMode(DataMatrix.M_AUTO);
	
	// if your selected format mode doesnot have enough space to encode your data,
	// the library will choose the right format mode for you automatically.
	barcode.setFormatMode(DataMatrix.F_10X10);
	
	//  Set the processTilde property to true, if you want use the tilde character "~" to
	//  specify special characters in the input data. Default is false.
	//  1-byte character: ~ddd (character value from 0 ~ 255)
	//  ASCII (with EXT): from ~000 to ~255
	//  2-byte character: ~6ddddd (character value from 0 ~ 65535)
	//  Unicode: from ~600000 to ~665535
	//  ECI: from ~7000000 to ~7999999
	barcode.setProcessTilde(true);
	
	// if you want to encode GS1 compatible Data Matrix, you need set FNC1 mode to IBarcode.FNC1_ENABLE
	barcode.setFnc1Mode(IBarcode.FNC1_NONE);
	
	// Unit of Measure, pixel, cm, or inch
	barcode.setUom(IBarcode.UOM_PIXEL);
	// barcode bar module width (X) in pixel
	barcode.setX(3f);
	
	barcode.setLeftMargin(10f);
	barcode.setRightMargin(10f);
	barcode.setTopMargin(10f);
	barcode.setBottomMargin(10f);
	// barcode image resolution in dpi
	barcode.setResolution(72);
	
	// barcode bar color and background color in Android device
	barcode.setForeColor(AndroidColor.black);
	barcode.setBackColor(AndroidColor.white);
	
	/*
	specify your barcode drawing area
	    */
	    RectF bounds = new RectF(30, 30, 0, 0);
	barcode.drawBarcode(canvas, bounds);
 

Android Data Matrix Barcode Properties

Barcode Java Class: com.onbarcode.barcode.android.DataMatrix.

Category Properties Value Comments
Basic Property: data Type: String
Default: ""
Barcode value to encode

Data Matrix Valid Data Char Set:

  • ASCII values 0 - 127 in accordance with the US national version of ISO/IEC 646

    NOTE: This version consists of the G0 set of ISO/IEC 646 and the C0 set of ISO/IEC 6429 with values 28 - 31 modified to FS, GS, RS and US respectively.
  • ASCII values 128 - 255 in accordance with ISO 8859-1. These are referred to as extended ASCII.

 
Data Matrix
Special
Property: processTilde Type: bool
Default: true
Set the processTilde property to true, if you want use the tilde character "~" to specify special characters in the input data. Default value is true.

  • 1-byte character: ~0dd/~1dd/~2dd (character value from 000 ~ 255); ASCII character '~' is presented by ~126
    Strings from "~256" to "~299" are unused
  • 2-byte character (Unicode): ~6ddddd (character value from 00000 ~ 65535)
    Strings from "~665536" to "~699999" are unused
  • for GS1 AI Code:
    ~ai2: AI code with 2 digits
    ~ai3: AI code with 3 digits
    ~ai4: AI code with 4 digits
    ~ai5: AI code with 5 digits
    ~ai6: AI code with 6 digits
    ~ai7: AI code with 7 digits
  • ECI: ~7dddddd (valid value of dddddd from 000000 to 999999)
  • ~rp: Reader Programming (for ASCII mode and Auto mode only)
