Signature Field

Usuario liam.baker 2018-03-13 11:17:35

Hello,

I am not sure if I am missing anything obvious, but do you have a way of adding a signature as a field.

For example, one of my lists outputs a site visit report as a pdf based on what the user has entered, it would great if the user could get the customer to sign a field using a stylus or finger from a tablet, and then to output this on the site visit report.

Many thanks,

Hello,
there is no such field type available. For that purpouse you would need another specific column type 'signature', able to store any user drawing and show it as an image at the table or exported documents. That would require a customized extension including this new field type, if you're interested in getting a custom version, you can place a ticket at the helpdesk where we can share all details of what's needed.

Thank you for your answer.

Instead of the custom signature field i would like the customer to sign his name, and for the PDF to change the font of that name to Herr Von Muellerhoff (google font). I have modified the .css file and it shows fine when using the HTML editor, however, when i create the PDF it goes back to a basic font.

Do I need to modify the pdf php in any way to allow it to use that font? or is this not possible?

Hi,
yes, you can add custom fonts to the pdf, but you need to configure the library that generates pdf from your html. This is located at
components/com_listmanager/views/serverpages/helper/mpdf

the 'readme' text file you will find at this folder explains how to add new fonts to the pdf different from the set available at default package. Basically consists in adding the ttf files for the font at the fonts folder, and add it at the config_font.php file so they can be used afterwards. If the font specified is not found at the library it defaults to another existing one configured at that same file, which is the result you're getting now.

Please let us know if you need further help
