    The e-signature widget appears not to have a "unique name" field. For every other type of widget I've used so far, this is located under the Advanced tab.

    Is the field hidden somewhere? Or is this simply a limitation of the e-signature widget?

    Thanks!

    Yes some fields and widgets don't have a unique name. So you cant use them in the same context as with other fields with unique names.

    May I ask what you wanted to accomplish? We might be able to find a work around for you.


    If you would like to customize the widget with CSS it should be possible. Widgets use their own CSS editor.

    I'm using a webhook to post to a form handler. To make some of the technicalities of this easier, I wanted to postfix a type designation to each field. The field names that result are things like this: countInteger, rpmFloat, nameString, crossSectionImage.

    Likewise, I would like to name the field in question signatureImage. But because I can't do this, I instead have to explicitly inform the handler (in code) that "Signature" is an Image.

    You will appreciate that this is not as maintainable as when the various types can be detected based on the field's postfix alone.

    I realize you want the unique name. So I'm not sure if I can help.

    A couple of ways you can find the id of the field:

    1) Inspect the code:
