EasyScript 3.0 is the result of continued enhancements to Scriptel’s popular EasyScript API. EasyScript enables simple plug and play, no-client-install capability with a signature pad. It is an ideal solution for browser-based applications that want cross-platform, cross-browser compatibility and no installed software maintenance headaches.
The latest version of EasyScript adds the ability for our EasyScript pads to switch between EasyScript mode and ProScript mode with a simple click using the ScripTouch Assist taskbar application. EasyScript signature pads with latest firmware can operate with applications using either our EasyScript or ProScript APIs.

ScripTouch Assist as a Startup Program
By default, Scriptel Assist is set to be a startup program. This means that every time your computer is started, the Scriptel Assist application will start running in the background, ready for you to use. Some users who only use their signature pad occasionally may not need this functionality and would prefer to run ScripTouch Assist only when they need to.
To remove ScripTouch Assist from the list of startup programs, follow these steps:
- Right-click on the Taskbar and select “Task Manager” in the popup window.
- Click the “Startup” tab. This tab displays all programs that start with Windows. To prevent ScripTouch Assist from starting when Windows starts, right-click on the program and select “Disable” from the popup menu.
Now when you wish to run ScripTouch Assist, you can double-click the desktop icon or open it from the Start menu where it will be grouped with other Scriptel Corporation software.
ScripTouch Assist Status
To verify that ScripTouch Assist is running, look in the notification area of your computer’s taskbar for the ScripTouch Assist icon.
ScripTouch Assist Usage
To open the ScripTouch Assist menu, click on its icon in the notification area of your computer’s taskbar. The options are (from top to bottom):
- Your Connection.
- Devices: Displays a list of devices connected to your computer. Choosing a device connects it to this application.
- The third line shows the opposite name of the protocol you are currently using, allowing you to switch by just clicking on it.
- Data Streaming: Turn on or off.
- Data Compression: Turn on or off.
- About: Will display the information for App Version, Library, Wrapper, Platform, and Architecture.
- Change Hotkey: Set a different keyboard shortcut for starting ScripTouch Assist. On the left of the display are the modifiers you can choose, (e.g. CTRL, CTRL-ALT, etc.) On the right is the key itself, which you can define by entering it in the textbox or tapping it on the keyboard.
Note: When you use your defined hotkey, ScripTouch Assist will start whenever it is pressed, no matter what else is happening so choose a hotkey that isn’t used by any of your other applications.
- ProScript modes do not offer data streaming or data compression options.
- If the signature pad loses power, its options will revert to its default mode. Future versions of ScripTouch Toolbox will allow you to change the default mode of any EasyScript 3.0 enabled ScripTouch pad.
