Windows Journal and IE 8

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by Charles McPhate, Apr 26, 2010.

  1. My client's remote technicians will be looking at a database record on a web
    page using a Tablet PC. The user will need to enter handwritten notes --
    without being converted to text. The notes should be saved as an image or
    PDF. I know I can do this in Firefox using the HTML5 canvas tag, but IE
    doesn't support it.

    Is there a way to launch Windows Journal from IE and pass to it the record
    number? I want the record number added to the Journal page and used as the
    filename when saving.

    Has anyone done anything like this? Or have any suggestions? I've spent
    hours searching the web for ideas...

  2. Have you tried simply creating a link pointing to a local harddrive
    known journal file?

    It _should_ launch by file association, but, if it doesn't, I would
    suspect that ie's security settings are preventing that from happening.

  3. I do not filly understand your scenario. :-( :-(

    You might have a look at OneNote.
    It has the feature of saving webpages and/or marked parts and works
    pretty fine with a pen.

    The new 2010 version will be part of of all Office 2010 editions. The
    final version (MSDN) is available on MSDN already and the the suites
    will be in the shops in a few weeks.
    Go to download the Office 2010 Beta and install OneNote.

    If any questions on ON, ask in the "microsoft.public.onenote" newsgroup.
