How to Generate, Resize Data Matrix Barcode Images in C# Class
Copy the following C#.NET program into .NET project to create, integrate a Data Matrix barcode image.
using KeepAutomation.Barcode.Bean;

BarCode datamatrix= new BarCode();
datamatrix.Symbology = KeepAutomation.Barcode.Symbology.DataMatrix;
datamatrix.CodeToEncode = "DataMatrixImage";
datamatrix.X = 3;
datamatrix.Y = 3;

Data Matrix Barcode Unit

All Data Matrix barcode size settings are measured in a specific unit. KA.Barcode Generator for .NET Suite provides three units of measure for you to choose: Cm, Inch and Pixel. Default value is in Pixel. You can adjust it through the following demo code.
datamatrix.BarcodeUnit = BarcodeUnit.Pixel;

Data Matrix Module Width and Module Height (X and Y dimension)

Data Matrix X dimension refers to the width of the module bar in a Data Matrix barcode image. This value type is float with a 1 pixel minimum value, which is the default value in KeepAutomation .NET Data Matrix Barcode.

Y dimension refers to the height of the module bar for a Data Matrix image. Since Data Matrix is made up of tiny square modules, users are required to set X and Y into the same value.
datamatrix.X = 3;         
datamatrix.Y = 3;

Data Matrix Format Mode

A Data Matrix size is largely decided by the Data Matrix Format Mode, which refers to the number of modules in a Data Matrix image. Default value is 12x12 for KA.Barcode Generator for .NET Suite.

Data Matrix symbols have 24 sizes of the square format ranging from 10x10 to 144x144 modules, not including the 1-X surrounding quiet zone (margin). The rectangular format has 6 sizes from 8x18 up to 16x48 modules, not including quiet zone. Adjust through the following setting.
datamatrix. DataMatrixFormatMode = DataMatrixFormatMode.FM_12X12;

Adjust Data Matrix Margins / Quiet Zones

The specification requires a 1-X margins, i.e. quiet zones, on four sides of a Data Matrix to increase readability. You can adjust width of the margin by increasing the value of properties LeftMargin (Float; Default: 0), RightMargin (Float; Default: 0), TopMargin (Float; Default: 0) and BottomMargin (Float; Default: 0). Please note that if you set X = 3, then you should set margin as follows:
datamatrix.TopMargin = 3;
datamatrix.BottomMargin = 3;
datamatrix.LeftMargin = 3;
datamatrix.RightMargin = 3;

Data Matrix Fixed BarCode Height and BarCode Width

C#.NET Data Matrix Generator is also equipped with functional properties BarCodeHeight (Float; Default: 0) and BarCodeWidth (Float; Default: 0) to set the size of the Data Matrix bar code image.
datamatrix.BarCodeHeight = 70;
datamatrix.BarCodeWidth = 175;
