Declaration

Delphi

procedure SetSignImageEx(Assign: Boolean; Encoding: Integer; Width, Height: Integer; Image: PByte; Size: Cardinal);

C/C++

SOPAD_API void SOPAD_setSignImageEx(int bAssign, int nEncoding, int nWidth, int nHeight, const void* pImage, int nSize);

ActiveX

HRESULT SetSignImageEx([in] VARIANT_BOOL Assign, [in] long Encoding, [in] long Width, [in] long Height, [in] VARIANT Image);

Description

It's possible to display custom image (for example, part of the document) on the pad's LCD during signing. This function allows to define custom image. Image will be actually drawn on the call of startCapture function.

NOTE: This function only works with signature pads with B/W display. For Signature Pads with colour display please see LCDImage or LCDImageEx, LCDImageExR

Arguments

Assign

Pass a non-zero value to store image, zero value to clear image.

Encoding

Image encoding method

ValueDescription
0Pre-naturaSign compatible. One byte represents one horizontal line of 8 pixels.
1naturaSign compatibe. One byte represents one vertical line of 8 pixels.

 

Width and Height

Size of signature image

LCDImageArrayImage

Single-dimensional array, containing byte values.

Array should have the following format:
Each bit represents one pixel, bit value = 1 means that pixel should be lit, thus one byte determines eight pixels state. The first byte of array corresponds to a line of pixels starting from (0, 0). In a byte bit 0 determines the leftmost or topmost pixel.

Size

Size of binary data block.
