How to read DPM codes

What is DPM (Direct Part Marking)?

It is the process of creating permanent markings on the surface of a part to help identify it. DPM Codes are used widely in industrial part tracking, from electronics manufacturing to automotive assembly. Atypical from general scenarios, DPM Codes present more challenges, including light reflection interference from the surface the code is printed on, low contrast, and complex background texture. For reference, here are two sample images of DPM codes:

Particular Settings Required

Dynamsoft Barcode Reader (DBR) provides a parameter, DPMCodeReadingModes, to control how to decode DPM codes. To enable the DPM feature, simply set a DPMCRM_GENERAL mode to this parameter.

Sample Code

The following code snippet shows how to set the parameter via RuntimeSettings to read DPM code.

  • JavaScript
  • C
  • C++
  • C#
  • Java
  • Android
  • Objective-C
  • Swift
  • Python
const scanner = scanner || await Dynamsoft.DBR.BarcodeScanner.createInstance();
let settings = await scanner.getRuntimeSettings();
// Sets dpmCodeReadingModes to support DPM reading.
settings.furtherModes.dpmCodeReadingModes[0] = Dynamsoft.DBR.EnumDPMCodeReadingMode.DPMCRM_GENERAL;
await scanner.updateRuntimeSettings(settings);
scanner.onUniqueRead = (txt, result) => {
    alert(txt);
};
await scanner.show();
int iRet = -1;
char errorBuf[512];
iRet = DBR_InitLicense("YOUR-LICENSE-KEY", errorBuf, 512);
if (iRet != DBR_OK)
{
    printf("%s\n", errorBuf);
}
void* barcodeReader = DBR_CreateInstance();
PublicRuntimeSettings runtimeSettings;
DBR_GetRuntimeSettings(barcodeReader, &runtimeSettings); //Get the current RuntimeSettings
runtimeSettings.furtherModes.dpmCodeReadingModes[0] = DPMCRM_GENERAL; // Set a DPMCRM_GENERAL mode to read DPM codes
DBR_UpdateRuntimeSettings(barcodeReader, &runtimeSettings, errorBuf, 512); // Update RuntimeSettings with above setting
DBR_DecodeFile(barcodeReader, "YOUR-IMAGE-FILE-WITH-DPM-CODES", ""); // Start decoding
// Add further process
char errorBuf[512];
int iRet = -1;
iRet = dynamsoft::dbr::CBarcodeReader::InitLicense("YOUR-LICENSE-KEY", errorBuf, 512);
if (iRet != DBR_OK)
{
    cout << errorBuf << endl;
