Syncfusion Flutter SignaturePad

Syncfusion Flutter SignaturePad library is written in Dart for capturing smooth and more realistic signatures and save it as an image to sync across devices and documents that needs signatures.

Overview

This library is used to capture a signature through drawing gestures. You can use your finger, pen, or mouse on a tablet, touchscreen, etc., to draw your own signature in this SignaturePad widget. The widget also allows you to save a signature as an image, which can be further synchronized with your documents that need the signature.

Disclaimer : This is a commercial package. To use this package, you need to have either a Syncfusion commercial license or Syncfusion Community License. For more details, please check the LICENSE file.

Note : Our packages are now compatible with Flutter for web. However, this will be in beta until Flutter for web becomes stable.

SignaturePad features

  • Rich customization - The widget allows you to set the minimum and maximum stroke widths and the stroke color for a signature. Also, you can set the background color of the SignaturePad.
  • More realistic handwritten look and feel - The unique stroke rendering algorithm draws signatures based on the speed of the drawing gestures, along with the minimum and maximum stroke thicknesses, which brings a more realistic, handwritten look and feel to your signatures.
  • Save as image - Save the drawn signature as an image to embed in documents, PDFs, and anything else that supports using images to denote a signature.

Installation

Install the latest version from pub.dev.

Getting started

Import the following package.

import 'package:syncfusion_flutter_signaturepad/signaturepad.dart';

Add SignaturePad to widget tree

Add the SignaturePad widget as a child of any widget. Here, the SignaturePad widget is added as a child of the Container widget.

@override

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Scaffold(
      body: Container(
        child: SfSignaturePad(),
      ),
    );
  }
  

Add SignaturePad elements

Update elements such as stroke color, minimum stroke width, maximum stroke width, and background color to capture a realistic signature. In the following code example, the SignaturePad is added inside a Container widget to get a size for it.

@override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {

    return Scaffold(
      body: Center(
        child: Container(
          child: SfSignaturePad(
            minimumStrokeWidth: 1,
            maximumStrokeWidth: 3,
            strokeColor: Colors.blue,
            backgroundColor: Colors.grey,
          ),
          height: 200,
          width: 300,
        ),
      ),
    );
  }

Save the signature as image in android and iOS platforms

You can save the signature drawn in the SignaturePad as an image using the toImage() method, as shown in the following code snippet in the Android and iOS platforms. Since this toImage() method is defined in the state object of SignaturePad, you have to use a global key assigned to the SignaturePad instance to call this method. Optionally, the pixelRatio parameter may be used to set the pixel ratio of the image. The higher the pixel ratio value, the high-quality picture you get. The default value of the pixel ratio parameter is 1.

@override

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {

    GlobalKey<SfSignaturePadState> _signaturePadKey = GlobalKey();

    return Scaffold(
      body: Column(
        children: [
          Container(
            child: SfSignaturePad(
              key:_signaturePadKey,
              backgroundColor: Colors.grey[200],
            ),
            height: 200,
            width: 300,
          ),
          RaisedButton(
              child: Text("Save As Image"),
              onPressed: () async {
                ui.Image image =
                   await_signaturePadKey.currentState.toImage(pixelRatio: 3);
              }),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }

Save the signature as an image in a web platform

You can save the signature drawn in the SignaturePad as an image using the renderToContext2D() method as shown in the following code snippet. Since this renderToContext2D () method is defined in the state object of SignaturePad, you have to use a global key assigned to the SignaturePad instance to call this method.

  @override

  Widget build(BuildContext context) {

    GlobalKey<SfSignaturePadState> _signaturePadKey = GlobalKey();

    return Scaffold(
      body: Column(
        children: [
          Container(
            child: SfSignaturePad(
              key: _signaturePadKey,
              backgroundColor: Colors.grey[200],
            ),
            height: 200,
            width: 300,
          ),
          RaisedButton(
              child: Text("Save As Image"),
              onPressed: () async {
                
				//Get the html canvas context
                final canvas = html.CanvasElement(width: 500, height: 500);
                final context = canvas.context2D;

		        //Get the signature in the canvas context
                _signaturePadKey.currentState.renderToContext2D(context);

		        //Get the image from the canvas context
                final blob = await canvas.toBlob('image/jpeg', 1.0);
                final completer = Completer<Uint8List>();
                final reader = html.FileReader();
                reader.readAsArrayBuffer(blob);
                reader.onLoad.listen((_) => completer.complete(reader.result));
                Uint8List imageData = await completer.future;

              }),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }

Clear the existing signature in SignaturePad

You can clear the signature drawn in the SignaturePad using the clear() method as show in the following code snippet. Since this clear() method is defined in the state object of SignaturePad, you have to use a global key assigned to the SignaturePad instance to call this method.

@override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    
	GlobalKey<SfSignaturePadState> _signaturePadKey = GlobalKey();
    
	return Scaffold(
      body: Column(
        children: [
          Container(
            child: SfSignaturePad(
              key: _signaturePadKey,
              backgroundColor: Colors.grey[200],
            ),
            height: 200,
            width: 300,
          ),
          RaisedButton(
              child: Text("Clear"),
              onPressed: () async {
                ui.Image image =
                   _signaturePadKey.currentState.clear();
              }),
        ],
      ),
    );
  }
