Note:

E-Forms cannot be signed in the Unity Client or Web Client. Once an E-Form is signed, it cannot be viewed in the Unity Client.

E-Forms must be properly configured for capturing signatures using the Signature Pad Interface (TWAIN) module. An E-Form can hold up to 25 signatures. The user must sign in an image placeholder, in a pre-designated area. When creating the E-Form, ensure you use the following syntax to designate the signing area.

  1. If you want to create an E-Form with one signature placeholder, insert this syntax in the form where you want the signature placeholder to reside.
    <P><IMG height="100" alt="signature" src="\\temp\signature.bmp" width="400" border="0"/></P>
  2. If you want to create an E-Form with two signature placeholders, insert this syntax in the form where you want the signature placeholder to reside.
    <P><IMG height="100" alt="signature" src="\\temp\signature.bmp" width="400" border="0"/></P>
    <P><IMG height="100" alt="2signature" src="\\temp\signature2.bmp" width="400" border="0"/></P>
    Note:

    In these examples, the source location for the signature is \\temp. Ensure that this location is a secure network location.

    Note:

    The E-Form should be saved in a text editor such as Notepad. HTML editors are not recommended because they can add extraneous information. For additional E-Forms best practices, see the E-Forms module reference guide's best practices appendix.

You can create a user-friendly label for the signature placeholder by placing the value you want to be displayed in the placeholder's alt value. This value should be formatted in one of the following ways:

alt="signature:Signature"

alt="2signature:Your Signature"

In these examples, Signature and Your Signature are the signatures that will be listed in the Signature Capture dialog box used during signature capture, providing an easy way to identify the exact signature the user wants to capture.
