The signature field edit type allows for the entry of a signature on a client’s screen that is stored as a bitmap image. This is an implicit edit type in that it cannot be selected when defining a field definition. Any detail screen field with an edit type of “Default” and targeting a property with an data type signature will be a signature field. This field edit type has no additional attributes beyond those of the common field attributes. Much of the behavior of this field is dictated by the signature property it targets.
