View Full Version : Sencha Touch Field Types

21 Sep 2011, 7:59 AM
As a complete newbie to Sencha Touch - is it possible to create a form field/item which allows the user to add a form signature by 'signing' the device touch screen, and is it possible to create a form field which allows the user to take a photograph using the device camera.

If it is possible, can anyone share code that would show me how to do this? Does this need something like PhoneGap to access the device functions?

Many thanks.

Hi willmarsh.
About the device camera, at the moment that's only possible using something like PhoneGap.
About the signature component, I suggest you to take a look at this good component created by SimonFlack.


Hope this helps.
