Hey guys,

I have made a recommendation to Telerik on this one and I need support for this new control idea.  If you do find it useful, please submit it as a feature request for the cause.

Thanks in advance.

I think a Digital Signature control would be a great add-on to the existing Telerik ASP.net library. 
Some of the main properties would include:
  • Integrated Authentication(Active Directory) vs. Anonymous mode
  • Text
  • Background image
  • the existing skin options
  • Fonts
  • and others

Client experience
  • When the Integrated Authentication is selected (during the development), the Current Context User ID is populated in the signature box along with DateTime
  • When the Anonymous mode is selected (during the development), the user will be able to enter Full Name inside a popup window and then control would be populated with the full name along with DateTime.
  • As soon as the control populated by the user, the signature can not be changed. (When the control renders on the client side, the signature would automatically be converted into a binary image which would be stored at a temporary folder.)

Server Side Capturing / Reading
Then the developer could use the usual binary conversion methods to send it to a database.  As soon as the Image is consumed it would be discraded from the temporary storage.

This is obviously a high level description on how I perceived it would work.  However, regardless of how it gets built or works from the developer perspective, if the main functionality I have mentioned here existed today it would definetely be one more thing for me to brag about Telerik to my colleges.

Best Regards,

Ian

Absolutely fantastic idea.  There is demand for this in Health care and the push for an electronic document format standard would make this control even more relevant.

Hi, I need this. I want to create a login control with digital signature  and sign a document which is created by the editor. Is there any improvement?

Hello guys,

I am afraid that the idea for eSignature control is declined as you can see at http://feedback.telerik.com/Project/108/Feedback/Details/65390-signature-capture. This does not mean, however, that you are not allowed to vote for it in the portal and share your constructive feedback.

Regards,
