capture hand-written text on touch screen with VB 2008

Posted on 2011-05-03
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

We have a project where an operator will hand-write on a touch screen of a Tablet PC (Windows 7) using the pen. Those fields would have to be saved as image for further consultation in a SQL 2008 database.

How can I capture the text? Is there any control available for that? how can I save those images in a SQL database?

thanks for your time and help

    thanks for the link, but I need to keep the captured text in image format. Operator need to write down on the Tablet PC some comments and then put his signature. Client want to keep the "hand-writting" as a way to identify the operator.
