Packaging a signature after the work object is resolved
For offline-enabled applications, signatures are removed by default from the client store after the work object is resolved. If an offline-enabled application contains a Signature Capture control that must be packaged and previewed, the pyIsWorkSignatureRequired when rule for the @baseclass class must be set to true.
If this is not done, the delta synchronization process is optimized and signatures cannot be previewed after the work object is resolved. You can set this when rule to false, the default setting, if the offline-enabled application does not use Signature Capture controls.
To show the captured signature in the Review harness after the work object is resolved, perform the following steps:
Set the pyIsWorkSignatureRequired when rule condition to true.
Create and load a data page with the last resolved work item by an operator. The new data page must have:
- A List structure.
- Mode set to Read Only.
- Scope set to Thread.
- The Data Page Refresh strategy set to Reload once per interaction.
For example, when you create the
D_FetchWorkDatadata page that is loaded by the
LoadWorkDataactivity that was created in the
Code-Pega-Listclass, this data page must include the last resolved work item by the operator.
Add the name of the data page that you created in step 2 to the pyDataPageSignatureBlackList rule, which lists the data page names.
- Offline-supported controls
Offline-enabled mobile apps only support a specific set of UI controls.
- Attach content support in offline mode
You can attach content to an offline-enabled application when you are not connected to the network. Specifically, while working in offline mode, you can attach any type of file from the device storage available from the device's native file picker component, for example, built-in image, video, or audio gallery. You can also attach content while working in offline from any mobile app that is installed on the device, for example, Audio Recorder or Camera.
- Adding a Signature capture control
You can add the Signature capture control to a cell, enabling users to capture a user signature, either through a mouse input or through a touch interaction on a mobile device. This control works when used in the context of a work object. Interacting with this control in an application occurs by displaying a field inline where a signature can be s
- Customizing a Signature capture control
The Cell Properties dialog for the Signature capture control consists of the following tabs. You can create or modify CSS base styles for the control and create custom Accept / Clear buttons, as described in the subsequent sections, below. See also Adding a Signature Capture control.
- Understanding offline-supported controls
Offline-enabled mobile apps support a specific set of controls. By learning about the available controls, you can ensure that your offline-enabled mobile app operates reliably.
