We need to start capturing sig's.

RE: [archive] Using Epad with Cobol

I had a quick look at the internet. They have a support site which refers to an example showing for instance how to store a signature on file. This example should come with the SDK along with the pad. http://epadsupport.com/index.php?name=News&file=article&sid=3
Advise; When approaching such tasks, ask for examples from the vendor, do not mention COBOL, if they ask you what language pick one that you feel somewhat comfortable with. Do not dive into the library interface documentation, that is just going to make you confused. There is something about learning to crawl before you walk. Once you have been able to solve a basic task, like saving a signature to file, then you can look at the documentation for possibly more sophisticated solutions.

Thanks for the help.

I am currently using a customized version of the .htm example they sent to pop up the sig box. It works ok just wanted to see if anyone else had other way of performing the task.

Thanks again,
