You can draw signature on UIView for that first subclass UIView and your subclass of UIView should be something like,


 #import <UIKit/UIKit.h>

@interface SignatureView : UIView{

UIBezierPath *_path;
- (void)erase;


 #import "SignatureView.h"

@implementation SignatureView

- (void)drawRect:(CGRect)rect {

_path.lineCapStyle = kCGLineCapRound;
[_path stroke];
- (id)initWithFrame:(CGRect)frame{

self = [super initWithFrame: frame];

if (self) {

    [self setMultipleTouchEnabled: NO];
    _path = [UIBezierPath bezierPath];
    [_path setLineWidth:2.0];

return self;

- (void)touchesBegan:(NSSet *)touches withEvent:(UIEvent *)event {

UITouch *mytouch=[[touches allObjects] objectAtIndex:0];
[_path moveToPoint:[mytouch locationInView:self]];
[_path addLineToPoint:[mytouch locationInView:self]];
[self setNeedsDisplay];


- (void)touchesMoved:(NSSet *)touches withEvent:(UIEvent *)event {

UITouch *mytouch=[[touches allObjects] objectAtIndex:0];
[_path addLineToPoint:[mytouch locationInView:self]];
[self setNeedsDisplay];


 - (void)erase {

_path   = nil;  //Set current path nil

_path   = [UIBezierPath bezierPath]; //Create new path
[_path setLineWidth:2.0];
[self setNeedsDisplay];


Then you can import SignatureView.h in any your view controller and can instantiate signature view something like,

   SignatureView *signView= [[ SignatureView alloc] initWithFrame: CGRectMake(10, 10, self.view.frame.size.width-40, 200)];
[signView setBackgroundColor:[UIColor whiteColor]];
signView.layer.borderColor = [[UIColor lightGrayColor]CGColor];
signView.layer.borderWidth = 1.0;
[self.view addSubview:signView];

And on that view you can draw your signature!

And you can call erase method to erase the signature!
