Web Signature Pad Setup: Very Mininum on Server Side; Nothing on Client Side
Client Side Setup
Nothing, absolutely. The Web Signature Control only requires a mouse, and an Internet Browser
including IE (version 5.5+), Firefox (version 1.5+), Safari (version 3.0+), Opera
(version 9.0+) and Chrome (version 1.0+). This web control works for some mobile
phone internet browsers such as Opera Mini, Windows Mobile and IPhone. However,
it is really depended on mobile phone device. If a mobile phone device does not
come with a styplus, it would be difficult to sign a signature.
Web Signature Viewer Handler Setup on Server Side
It is very simple. Basically you just need to copy the WebSignature.dll assembly
to your application's bin folder, and then add the WebSignature.dll as a reference
in your web application. You can drag-drop the control from your toolbox
to your page if add the control to your toolbox. Now the control supports design time HTML render. You can customize your
control in Visual Studio's design window easily. If you want to run your web signature
pad in AJAX mode, you may need the following two mininum and optional setup
- Setup websignatureViewer HTTP handler
- Setup a folder to save the captured signature images
If this web page is running on your website, do you see a "Sign Here" image above?
If not, a minimum setup is required for using the Web Signature Pad in AJAX mode
on your web site. Such a setup is not necessary if you can see the "Sign Here" image
when you check your website; or you do not use the web signature pad in AJAX mode.
Such a setup is ABSOLUTELY unnecessary on client side.
For Web Signature applications in IIS 5, or 6 (Windows version less than
Windows Vista, 7 and Server 2008), in the section of <configration> <system.web>
<httpHandlers>, add the following setting in the web.config file:
<add verb="*" path="*.sign.ashx" validate="false" type="RealSignature.SignatureViewer"/>
For Web Signature Pad application in IIS 7 or above
(Windows Vista, 7 and
Server 2008), in the section of <configration> <system.webServer> <Handlers>,
add the following setting in the web.config file:
<add name="SignatureViewer" verb="*" path="*.sign.ashx" preCondition="integratedMode" type="RealSignature.SignatureViewer"/>
If you develop your web application for IIS 7.0 or above in Visual Studio
you need add both of the two handlers' settings in the web.config file.
Folder for Captured Web Signature Images Setup
If you want to save the captured signature images in a folder without specifing
a folder name in application, you can add the following line in the web.config <appSettings>
<add key="SignatureImageOutputFolder" value="SignatureImages" />
