Signature Panel

Hello,

I'm Running Apache 2x, PHP 5x, and MySQL 4x

I want to make a signature panel interface for a web application (that will run from a tablet).  I know there is a Java applet called scribble that I can use for input, but I'm not sure how to use it in a form.

I'm thinking the process would work something like this:

-Input to signature panel
-Submit form
-Move post variable to MySQL blog file as a jpg

Any suggestions?

Create a BufferedImage of the same size as the Component. Call paint on the Component, passing the Graphics of the Image as a parameter. You can then write the Image where you want using ImageIO.write

you would just need to add code to post the image to the server.

You'd use something like a servlet on the server side to recieve the signature image.
