Hello all -
I don't know if this is possible or not. I am reading everything I can get my eyes on but not finding what I would like.
Request form is created in LCD 8.2 ES. The purpose is to track time extensions requested for documents that have gone past their 'due dates.'
As it works right now:
1) Requester fills out form using Adobe Reader and prints it out, gets it to the first department head (A).
2) Department Head A must print his/her name, then sign and date the form.
3) Department Head B must print her/his name, then sign and date the form.
Obviously this is not the intent of a pdf form.
What I have been tasked to do is find out the following:
IF we can use a password to make this happen, where do I look to find the information. I am willing to search and learn but haven't found it so far. We realize that the fewer dept. heads' signatures needed, the better for us for purposes of gathering and storing them. And I don't know how or where we would store them.
I have to say that the reason we're looking to do it this way is because we do NOT want to use third-party e-sign certification.
Interesting dilemma, no?
Thank you! - go raibh mat agat!
Dia duit Maria,
Yes, it is possible, provided you are aware that it is not a secure solution.
I can't do up a sample, but there are a couple of things I would point to:
Something like this in the exit event of the name field:
var vQuestion = this.rawValue + ", please input your password.";
var vPassword = xha.host.response(vQuestion, "Top Security");
if (this.rawValue == "Niall" && vPassword == "niall's secret password")
signImage.rawValue = niallSignature.value.image.value;
else if (this.rawValue == "Sean" && vPassword == "sean's secret password")
signImage.rawValue = seanSignature.value.image.value;
This is typed in, so may not work straight off and you would need to reference your objects.
As I say this is not a secure solution. There is a way of using HASH keys to encrypt the passwords. I have an example, but see does this work first.
Hope you can piece this together.
Beannachtaí na Cásca Niall!!
I will be trying out your suggestions straight away! If this works, and if adding the hash marks gives security, I will be so excited!!
Will let you know how it goes!
Tráthnóna maith agat!
