The Sketch point can be used to draw sketches, signatures or other markings and save them to the session. A Sketch point can display an image in the background allowing the a sketch or drawing to be completed on top of the image. An image can be added from the point's property settings when creating the project or alternatively the Sketch point can be integrated with a Camera point which can capture a photo during a session and insert the photo into the background of the Sketch point.
A Camera point can be used to capture photos during a session or to select images from a device's photo library which can be loaded into the background of a Sketch point. The Sketch point can then be used to draw sketches over the image which can be used to draw diagrams, instructions or other markings.
The Sketch point is seamlessly integrated with the online reporting tools and can be exported to standard digital formats such as HTML, PDF and more.
The Sketch point can be configured in the Mobile Data Anywhere Designer to set the data for the list of items and to choose how the point functions within a session on the mobile application. Below is an example of the properties window for a Sketch point, opened in the Mobile Data Anywhere Designer.
The Sketching options can be used to configure the size and behaviour of the Sketch point. See below for a list of available options:
These options can be used to set the size of the Sketch point, allowing for small or large areas to create drawings.
This is used to determine which colours are available when displayed in a session on the mobile application. The user can switch colours by tapping on the desired colour palette. The available options include:
Another point, such as a Camera point , can be associated with the Sketch point to allow a photo to be captured during a session and then automatically import the photo into the background of the Sketch point. This can be used to draw sketches and markings over photos that are captured out in the field.
Basic Points Sample
project contains examples of how to use many of the various points that are available. This project also contains a
page that demonstrates some of the ways that this point can be used in your projects.
