VB.NET Data Matrix Unicode Overview
Unicode is a global computer industry standard. It successfully defines how to transform human-readable texts & numbers into internationally-recognized numbers via character encoding methods.
In order to generate Data Matrix 2d barcode in VB.NET with Unicode characters in other languages like Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese & Korean, users need to convert those special data strings into the common 2-byte data strings.
Encode Unicode for VB.NET Data Matrix Generation & Reading
If you want to encode Data Matrix barcode with other non-English characters, you need the Unicode encoding function of our VB.NET Data Matrix barcode generator. Unicode encoding procedure is very easy. Convert Unicode data strings into 2-byte data via Base64[] before you generate Data Matrix and convert the scanning result into original encoded language characters after you scan the Data Matrix.

Encode Non-English Characters into Data Matrix via Unicode

Data Matrix can encode both 1-byte and 2-byte data strings. And Unicode makes it possible to convert other language characters into 2-byte data. The following VB.NET class code will help .NET developers generate Data Matrix via Base64[] Unicode conversion.

Get Original Unicode Data While Reading Data Matrix

To get your original encoded Unicode data string, you need to convert the scanning data to original data via Base64[] after decoding the Data Matrix.
     byte[] base64SingleBytes = Convert.FromBase64String(data);
     string UnicodeFromBarcode = System.Text.Encoding.Unicode.GetString(base64SingleBytes);
