Join Cris Ippolite for an in-depth discussion in this video Capturing signatures, part of Learn FileMaker Go 15: The Basics.
- [Voiceover] One of the more compelling uses…of container fields in Filemaker Go is…to use the field to capture signatures…and then to store them as images within your custom app.…Signature capture requires a layout with a container…field on it, and access to that layout…via Filemaker Go but you need no additional…hardware or addons to be able to capture the signature.…So if we take a look at any Filemaker layout…that has a container on it already,…you'll see here in the layout of the exercise file…we've got a container, the container happens to be…called the "sign off signature".…
You'll notice that's just a field that's defined…inside of our database down here in the bottom…and it has a type of container.…And really that's all you have to do…to capture a signature.…Now a user can interact with a container field…on Filemaker Go and they'll be taken to an import…sheet which allows them to select signature as…an option, but if you want to take them directly…to that, you can set up your field as a button.…So the way that you do that is you can…
