Save picture to ViewModel

How do I save a picture of a control to a view model (to later save it to a database or FTP server, for example) rather than on a user's computer?

When will it be available in the EJ2 version?

Greetings from Syncfusion support.

We have prepared simple sample of saving the Signature into a SQL DB which meets your requirement.    
Please find the below KB link and sample for more references.  
Please check the shared sample and let us know if you need any further assistance.

Hi Patrick, 

Good day to you!! 

For your information, the expected functionality is already available with the last provided sample in our previous update. Anyhow, we have now modified the sample to save the uploaded signature in property model object in the code behind as per your expectations. Please, refer the below code snippet and sample from below to achieve your requirement. 

    ViewData["Title"] = "Signature"; 
<h3>Sign here</h3> 
<div class="frame"> 
    <ej-signature id="mysign" height="400px" width="500" stroke-width="3" is-responsive="true" /> 
    <input id="btnUpload" type="button" value="UploaddatatoDB" onclick="Uploaddata()" /> 
    function Uploaddata() { 
        var target1 = $("#mysign").ejSignature("instance")._canvas[0].toDataURL() 
        var div = $("#mysign"); 
        var canvas = div["children"]()[0]; 
        image = canvas.toDataURL("image/png"); 
        newimage = image.replace('data:image/png;base64,', ''); 
            type: 'POST', 
            url: '@Url.Action("Upload", "Home")', 
            data: { 
                target: newimage 
                success: function (data) { 
                    alert("success" ); 

public class SignatureTask 
        public string DataValue { get; set; } 
        public string SaveValueObject { get; set; } 

        public IActionResult Upload(string target) 
            SignatureTask obj = new SignatureTask(); 
            // Saving the signature value in model object 
            obj.SaveValueObject = target; 
            return View(); 

Please, let us know if you need any further assistance.
