2D barcode is not scannable easily.

Hi Team,

We are using product : NET Linear + 2D Forms Control Package
(Part number - IDA62) to generate 2D datamatrix barcode.

But the 2D barcode is not easily scannable. The scan is not instant we have to position the scanner at various angles until the barcode will be read.

We are using below code to generate a barcode.

DataMatrixBarcode Barcode = new DataMatrixBarcode();
Barcode.DataToEncode = "[)>~d03006~d0291PTESTMATERIALCODE~d029STESTSERIALNUMBER
~d029Q1~d0294LDE~d02918VLEPSK~d030~d004"
Barcode.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(120, 120);
Barcode.TopMarginCM = 0.1f;
Barcode.Width = 120;
Barcode.Height = 120;
Bitmap bc_Image = new Bitmap(Barcode.Picture, 120, 120);


This issue is quite urgent and the end users are not able to use the application and scan the barcodes.
I hope you can understand the priority.

Thank you,
Machindra Waghole.

Operating System: Windows 7

Application: C# .Net windows application

There are several reasons why the barcode may not be easily scannable. When generating the barcode as an image, verify:

1. The XDimension is set to a size that the scanner is capable of reading. Check the XDimension MILS or XDimensionCM property.

2. The entire barcode displays.

3. Printed to a high quality printer.

4. The barcode is not manually resized after saving the image.


Can you attach a saved image of the barcode or send to our support@idautomation.com email?

What type of printer is the barcode printed to?
