DatamatrixEncoder is a very easy to use interface so you can create your DataMatrix barcodes. There are two key elements of a simple Data Matrix code grouped in the so called "finder pattern" and "timing pattern". The finder pattern is made of the left and the bottom solid borders which form an "L" shape. Their main purpose is to orient the reading device while scanning. The timing pattern is composed by the other two borders with the only difference that they are not solid but checked. The sequence of black and white cells practically tells the user how many rows and columns there are. The amount of information encoded corresponds with the number and sizes of the cell. Error correction is a very convenient feature of the Data Matrix especially if there is a chance your code to be damaged. What Error correction allow you is basically to lose part of the squares/rectangles and you code still to be readable.
