I am trying to incorporate an electronic signature using the Topaz Systems signature pad into my Web Application.
Currently I am using Thomas Bradley's
HTML5 Canvas signature pad for input as well as image regeneration later for reports, and would like to have the same control using the physical signature pad.
The pad runs through the signature fine, and I can get the raw information to pass onto the PHP page for processing. The issue I am running into is because the sample PHP script found here
must be run on a Windows IIS server to access, instantiate, and use the COM PHP class and I am running on a LAMP server I cannot create an image on the server side.
An image is able to be created on the client side before the form is submitted using the ActiveX controls I can create and store an image on the local computer. I do not want to have to have the user manually upload their signature, as it is currently all automated.
Is there a way to either create the image on the client side and automatically upload the image, or is there any other way of converting the raw SigPlus data into something usuable on the server side of things?
