How To?

Save signature image with user defined format

By default, the downloaded image from the signature canvas will be in png format. We can define our own format to download the image with [e-saveimageformat] property. And we can also save the image along with the background by using the e-savewithbackground property.

The following code example is used to download drawn image on the Signature control.

  • html
  • <div ng-controller="signatureCtrl">
    
    <div id="apiSignature" ej-signature e-height="400px" e-isresponsive="true" e-backgroundimage="http://js.syncfusion.com/demos/web/content/images/signature/water.png" e-savewithbackground="true"></div>
    
        </div>
    
    <input id="signsave" class="e-btn" type="button" value="Save" ej-button e-width="50px" e-size="normal" e-showroundedcorner="true" e-click="onSave" />

    Add the following script to define the download format for the canvas.

  • js
  • syncApp.controller('signatureCtrl', function ($scope) {
                $scope.onSave = function (args) {
                     var signature = $("#apiSignature").ejSignature("instance");
                     signature.save("MySignature");
                }
            });

    The following screenshot illustrates the Signature with saving (downloading) the drawn image.

    To clear the Signature

    To clear the signature, you can simply use the clear() method. This method will clear all the drawn strokes in the signature canvas and leaves it empty.

  • html
  • <div ng-controller="signatureCtrl">
    
    <div id="apiSignature" ej-signature e-height="400px" e-isresponsive="true"></div>
    
        </div>
    
    <input id="signclear" class="e-btn" type="button" value="Clear" ej-button e-width="50px" e-size="normal" e-showroundedcorner="true" e-click="onClear" />

    Add the following script to clear the Signature.

  • js
  • syncApp.controller('signatureCtrl', function ($scope) {
                $scope.onClear = function (args) {
                     var signature = $("#apiSignature").ejSignature("instance");
                     signature.clear();
                }
            });

    Make signature as responsive

    When the signature component is resized or even the window is resized the strokes drawn in the signature will be disappeared. To make the strokes visible even after resizing the window, we must set the e-isresponsive property as true.

    The following code example is used to render the Signature component with responsive support.

  • html
  • <div ng-controller="signatureCtrl">
            <div id="signature" ej-signature e-height="height" e-width="width" e-isresponsive="true" ></div>     
        </div>

    The following screenshot illustrates the Signature with responsiveness.

    To check whether any input to the signature control since render

    We can detect whether not there has been any input to the signature control since render. To detect we can use the storeSnap public variable, which is an array that stores all the canvas inputs. At initial rendering this array is empty and we can use this variable to check for the drawn strokes.

  • js
  • <script type="text/javascript">
          var sign = $("#signature").ejSignature("instance");
    
                if (ej.isNullOrUndefined(sign.storeSnap)) {
                   
                    //Something
    
                }
        </script>
