Viewer SDK and Wacom signature tablet

Post by TrackerUser99 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 7:12 pm

I have a requirement to integrate a signature from a Wacom tablet into a PDF signature field. I have a Wacom STU-500 tablet and Wacom's Sign Pro SDK. I am using PDF-XChange PRO SDK v5.0 and the PDF-XChange Viewer. The app is developed in Delphi. I have two options: I could display a signature in a signature field (#1 below), or place a graphic representation of the signature in a graphic annotation (#2 below). My PDF form are developed in Foxit PhantomPDF but they get opened programatically in PDF-XChange Viewer.

1. Is it possible to connect the Wacom signature tablet and the Sign Pro driver when a signature field is clicked? Do you have a Javascript example that I can see to get a idea how to do this?

2. Is it possible to load a .sig file or a jpg into graphic annotation when a field is clicked? In the Delphi app I can place a "sign" button that will enable the Wacom tablet to prompt for a signature (this is operational). Can I add the resulting .sig file into a form field in the PDF document?.


Thank you.

Hi, TrackerUser99

Sorry, but no way to do it with our old Viewer SDK. You may try to do it with out new SDKs: ... editor-sdk
or ... re-api-sdk
