How to Generate Data Matrix in .NET WinForms Library
Data Matrix (a.k.a. Data Matrix ECC200) is an alphanumeric two-dimensional barcode symbology, which is made up of light and dark cells (a.k.a. modules). There are six data-encoding modes for data matrix to carry different types of data in ASCII characters (Standard & Extended) appropriately.
Data Matrix Generator for .NET Winforms is a powerful and flexible control. It provides a simple way for users to generate Data Matrix in .NET Windows Forms applications using programming language, such as C#, VB .NET, etc.
Data Matrix Generator .NET Winforms SDK also provides a lot of barcode options like Image options, Flexible sizing options to customize barcode to meet users’ needs. High-quality Data Matrix barcode can be drawn into JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF and Bitmap formats as well as in the memory.

Data Matrix Specification - ISO / IEC 16022 (2nd edition 2006-09-15) is pre-configured so that all Data Matrix barcodes are valid and scannable. You can get more specific tutorials here on how to encode Data Matrix, how manipulate Data Matrix barcode image, and how to resize Data Matrix barcode.
