I had this question after viewing Capture Customer Signature using MS Access on Tablet PC.

I want to do exactly the same as this question, but using Windows 10, which does not support the Tablet SDK1.7.

If you read that thread again, they only installed the SDK to get access to the control.

<<  'above control installed after installing of Microsoft tablet PC sdk 1.7>>

 They were using it in Windows 7, which should work in Windows 10 as well.

 But I would think there would be a better / new way of getting a signature in Windows 10.  I don't know myself off-hand what that might be.   Would have to dig a bit.

 I'll come back to this on Monday if no one else has jumped in.

Jim.

I recently helped someone else capture signatures in this previous EE PAQ.  For this implementation, I am using Windows 10 and was able to download and reference the Tablet PC SDK, version 1.7 without issue.

If, on the other hand, you want to use the Windows 10 native methods, you can refer to this blog post concerning DirectInk:

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/mt590975.aspx

Which I believe uses the classes and methods in the Windows.UI.Input.Inking namespace.

Hi Both

I think that I am out of my depth on this one. Know what I know with access/VBA but I feel this one is beyond me and need to pay for someone to do the work for me.

I suppose I was dreaming that there would be a simple solution within Windows 10! I will gladly share the point with you. Thanks again.
