Selecting Barcode Type


The second step is to specify the barcode type (or in technical terms - symbology).  

Select 1D,   PDF417 or DataMatrix from Configuration Panel toolbar, using the icons.  The example below shows a PDF417 selection.




With PDF417 and DataMatrix you can choose to compress large amount of data, such as XML records, so that they occupy less space.   The ClearImage barcode recognition engines reads such barcodes and automatically decompress the stored data.
