What do I need if I want to include 2D Data Matrix Barcode into a product

We are a manufacturer of industrial inkjet printers.

What do I need if I want to include a 2D Data Matrix Barcode into our product?

Our software is a Linus embedded system.

Thank you for the information,

Our data matrix font and encoder advantage package includes a C++ header file with the unlimited developers license.

The header file has a IDAutomation_DMFontEncode method which returns a string of formatted text. A readable barcode will result when the data matrix font is applied to this text.

I believe the trick will be getting the font installed on the system. Here is a sample encoded data string if you would like to test this out first. This simply has the string "Hello World" encoded in it.

Refer to this page for some sample code on how this can be implemented.

The data matrix symbology does not fully support foreign languages. It only supports the 256 characters of the ASCII table.

We are using C++

We key in the data from a touch panel and we get square 2D data Matrix barcode displayed and printed.

Hello,

Can you give me some more details on your product? Is this a custom application? If so then what language is this written in, java, c++, etc...? Also how would you like the barcode to be generated, by a font or an image?
