To sign an existing approval signature field in a PDF Document:
PDFDoc doc(docpath); // Retrieve the unsigned approval signature field. Field found_approval_field(doc.GetField(approval_field_name)); PDF::DigitalSignatureField approval_digsig_field(found_approval_field); // (OPTIONAL) Add more information to the signature dictionary. approval_digsig_field.SetLocation("Vancouver, BC"); approval_digsig_field.SetReason("Document approval."); approval_digsig_field.SetContactInfo("www.pdftron.com"); // (OPTIONAL) Add an appearance to the signature field. PDF::Image img = PDF::Image::Create(doc, appearance_img_path); Annots::SignatureWidget approval_signature_widget(found_approval_field.GetSDFObj()); approval_signature_widget.CreateSignatureAppearance(img); // Prepare the signature and signature handler for signing. approval_digsig_field.SignOnNextSave(private_key_file_path, keyfile_password); // The actual approval signing will be done during the following incremental save operation. doc.Save(outpath, SDFDoc::e_incremental, NULL);
Digitally sign PDF files
Full code sample which demonstrates using the digital signature API to digitally sign and/or certify PDF documents.
The PDFTron SDK enables approval signatures in PDF documents using a Digital Certificate, in accordance with the latest PDF specification. By leveraging public key infrastructure (PKI) technology, with a certificate issued by a trusted certificate authority (CA), a signer can use a certificate-based digital ID to guarantee the authenticity of a signature. Placement of a digital signature using a certificate can also guarantee that a document was not modified since the signature was placed, ensuring the authenticity of the document.
Above is an example of a document containing a certified signature, guaranteed by a certificate generated by PDFTron.com.
