Resize Signature with the Browser


Product Signature for Blazor


This KB article answers the following questions:

  • How to use percentage value for the Signature Width and Height?
  • How to resize the Signature component together with the browser window viewport?
  • How to change the Signature dimensions relative to the screen size?
  • How to use flexible Signature size, instead of hard-coded pixel values?


The Signature component uses a drawing <canvas>. Relative sizes with automatic HTML element resizing are not supported and that's why the component requires pixel dimensions.

A possible workaround is to change the component Width and Height at runtime, depending on the size of browser window viewport.

  1. Use JSInterop to obtain the user screen size.
  2. Calculate and set the desired Signature Width and Height.
  3. If you need to resize the Signature on browser window resize, use debouncing in the JavaScript event handler for better Blazor app performance.
  4. Remove the Signature from the page temporarily while changing its size. This may not be necessary in future versions.
