I've implemented this kind of component in my web application for the user to be able to make on-screen signatures:
This might be comfortable to use in touch-enabled devices, so as the user can use his finger or a kind of stick to draw the signature. However, it would be more difficult to do it using the mouse when he's in a PC.
So my question is, is there any device which writes directly in the screen in a mouse-like behaviour? I've seen those signature sets which seem to output a bitmap (that's not what I want).
The way to use it would be:
- User enters the drawing zone in his browser using his mouse.
- User takes the electronic pen and draws the signature using the mouse pointer.
Think of it as a USB pluggable pen, its ballpoint would both move the pointer and simulate a left-click of the ordinary mouse.
Everything should be possible using the same PC and with the electronic pen device having priority over the mouse for controlling the pointer.
