Signature Pad

Using signature pad for payment process is a new cash payment method.

Basic Functionalities

Basic functionalities of display on signature pad are:

  • Show the advertising slide images on signature pad one after another according to de slide delay predefined in Company( in our example, for company FoodMart, the slide delay is defined as 2000, which means 2 seconds).
  • When the customer signature is required, the display image on the signature pad will switch to the signing image, additional 3 buttons will be shown under the signing image: done, cancle and delete.(these labels could be translated with I18n)

Functionalities after signing

The following image is the signing image in our example.

Signing image.jpeg

  • Customer signs, and then select “done”, the signature of customer will be saved as a blob-mapping data, saving as thousands of points with x,y, pressure... the display of signature pad switch to the advertising slide images.
  • Customer signs, and then select “cancle”, the signature process will be broken, switch to the advertising slide images.
  • Customer signs, and then select “clear”, the signature will be deleted, and waiting for the next action of customer.

Technical changes in DSL model

changes in entity

  1. New entity AdvertisingSlide :
    entity AdvertisingSlide extends BaseUUID {
    	persistenceUnit "businessdata"
    	domainKey String slide
    	var Date showFrom properties( key="Date" value="Minute")
    	var Date showUntil properties(key="Date" value="Minute")
    	var BlobMapping image
    	ref Company company opposite slides
    • slide: name of this slide.
    • ShowFrom and showUntil: valid date interval for this slide.
    • Image: save this slide as a blobmapping data.
    • Company: which company using this slide.
  2. New properties and references in entity Company:
    entity Company extends BaseUUID { 
    	. . .
    	var BlobMapping signingImage
    	var int slideDelay properties(key="Slider" value="1000:10000")
    	ref AdvertisingSlide[*] slides opposite company properties( key = "Table" value = "" )
    	. . .
    • signingImage: save the signing image as a blobmapping data. signingImage is the image which will be displayed on signature pad when customer signes.
    • slideDelay: define the time delay for changing advertising slide image, unit is ms, and this value should be between 1000 and 10000, which means the delay should be between 1 second and 10 seconds.
    • Slides: define a set of advertisingSlides for this company. These advertising slide images will be displayed one after another on the signature pad when no actions on it.
  3. A new Cash Payment Method "signaturePad": If the customer selects this payment way, the signature pad will be active.
  4. New entity CashPaymentPenData :
    entity CashPaymentPenData extends BaseUUID {
    	persistenceUnit "businessdata"
    	var int rdy
    	var int sw
    	var int pressure
    	var int x
    	var int y
    	ref CashPayment payment opposite penData
    • The signature image will be saved as a CashPaymentPenData. All this relevant data value is generated from WACOM(mark of signature pad) software. The important values are pressure amount and cursor coordinates x and y. They will be saved save as a blob-mapping data, which including thousands of points with all the important values.
  5. Some new properties and references are defined in entity CashPayment:
    entity CashPayment extends BaseUUID {
    . . .
    	var BlobMapping signatureBitmap
    	ref cascade CashPaymentPenData[*] penData opposite payment
