    We want to Embed the Signature Widget inside the Textbox field

    Asked by amhomelife on January 14, 2015 at 07:20 PM
    It would also be important if we were able to embed the signature code inside the TEXT box field so the individual completing the application will appear to be signing the actual contract with all text and signatures contained within the text box, at this time, there are signatures outside of the Risk & Release text area.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, the Textbox field was not designed for such purpose. It will not work anymore if you embed another element into the Textbox field.

    If I understand your requirement correctly on your jotform http://www.jotformpro.com/form/40555998959984, you wanted to capture the TEXTS (terms, agreements, etc) in the Submission data.

    That is actually available already.

    Check this user guide: 

    -How-to-include-Headers-Texts-and-Images-in-the-PDF-format-of-a-submission

    You just need to enable the option "Show Headers and Texts"

     

    In case this is not what you were looking for, how about if you do it like this also

    1. Make the Texts(agreements) and Signature widget a *Required field

    This way the form respondent will be obliged to read and sign them.

    2. You can add a Narrative Field widget so that the Text can be set as required.

    See image below for example

     

    The form will not be submitted unless both required information are answered.

     

    Hope this help. Please inform us if you need more assistance.

    Thanks.
