We do this in a field service project using Android tablets. The signature is no problem using drawing functions together with mousemove-events.

Hi Noel,

I have developed a stock control application for one of my clients that ended up expanding to a point of sale solution with signature capture.

The device we used for this was a Topaz Signature Gem 1x5

This has been working with Windev 18 & 19 perfectly and I would highly recommend them.

Hope this helps :)

Hi Lee,

Can you please tell me how to get the signature to my windev program?

Hi Noel

the signature is saved on the mobile as an image. To transfer the image file to the windev program, you can use several different methods, depending on what your other requirements are :
- webservice
- awp page with httprequest (ie REST type webservice)
- socket communication
- direct copy through the network
and so on.. It all depends of what you need to do and what you feel comfortable with

Best regards

Hi Fabrice

I cannot locate the hardware locally and need to buy it on the net. Just want to make sure that this particular pad is not very difficult to get the signature from it.

Hi Noel

the problem will be exactly the same for ANY tel/tablet that you are using. Transferring a file from one of those to a pc is always the same. So your choice of hardware should not be based on that.

Best regards

Hi Fabrice,

Will it be the same for a signature pad connected through a usb port to a desktop pc?
Will the pad (or whatever they are called ) store the 'siugnature image' in its memory or save on the desktop?

Hi Noel

at this point, it seems that there may be a misunderstanding...

I am talking about any GENERIC phones/Tablets running android (or even windows mobile), while you keep insisting on "signature pad".

If you are talking about a SPECIFIC hardware designed only for entering signatures, then you will have to find out with the hardware vendor how it works.

Best regards

I don't know if it helps you but check this review http://digital-pen-review.toptenreviews.com/
If you google digital pens you probably find what you need.

I was not... I repeatedly talked about Telephones and Tablets.

So it's up to you to decide if you need a specific hardware or not

Hi everybody,

i'd like to use a Topaz T-S460-HSB-R device in a windev22 app.
The purpose is that people could sign a timesheet twice a day : morning and afternoon.
Did any of you already used the sigsign.ocx in a windev desktop app ?
Or if not, what other device could you preconise to do this kind of job with windev.

Thanks for all your feedbacks
Best regards
