Customising the signature capture window
There are several cosmetic changes which can be made to the standard signature capture window using registry values.
These are documented in section 7 of the Signature SDK reference manual which is supplied with the SDK download.
Below is a summary of the main ones.
This registry value displays the buttons outside the Windows capture dialog and removes them from the pad display. It only works with STU devices.
Implementing it means that the pen cannot be used to click any buttons - this must be done by the PC operator with the mouse.
The screenshot below shows the capture window as it appears on the PC monitor with the buttons at the bottom.
The display on the STU does not show the buttons at all.
These registry values can be used to set the width and height of the capture area in pixels. The capture area does not include the buttons.
If used with an STU the capture window on the STU is unaffected - the sizing is only applied to the capture window on the PC monitor.
Name and point size of font to use for text within the capture area (i.e. the who, why and when values)
Name and point size of font to use for text outside the capture area (i.e. on the buttons)
The example below shows the effect of using the following values with an STU 530:
InsideFontFaceName - Broadway
InsideFontHeight - 16
OutsideFontFaceName - Stencil
OutsideFontHeight - 20
This determines what type of graphic is used to indicate where the signature is to be placed. The options are:
|Horizontal line (the default behaviour as illustrated in screenshot above)
|Box corners (for more details please see the reference manual)
|Buttons on the right (as is the default behaviour for the STU 300)
Normally the language used on the signature capture window (mainly on the buttons) is determined by the current system language, or the language of the current application if that is different.
The "language" registry key allows you to override the above default behaviour. The abbreviations are as follows (see also http://www.lingoes.net/en/translator/langcode.htm):
de = German el = Greek en = English es = Spanish fr = French it = Italian ja = Japanese ko = Korean nl = Dutch pl = Polish
pt-BR = Portuguese (Brazil) ru = Russian zh-CN = simplified Chinese zh-TW = traditional Chinese
The registry key should be placed in HKLM\SOFTWARE(Wow6432Node)\Florentis\SigCapt rather than HKLM\SOFTWARE(Wow6432Node)\Florentis\sd as with all the other registry keys shown above.
It should be entered in duplicate, separated by semi-colon or comma, e.g. en; en. See the screenshot below for simplified Chinese.
Please note also that you will probably need to restart your browser for the language setting to take effect - this is not the case with the other registry settings mentioned above.
