To sign an existing approval signature field in a PDF Document:
PTPDFDoc* doc = [[PTPDFDoc alloc] initWithFilepath: docpath]; // Retrieve the unsigned approval signature field. PTField* found_approval_field = [doc GetField: approval_field_name]; PTDigitalSignatureField* approval_digsig_field = [[PTDigitalSignatureField alloc] initWithIn_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. PTImage* img = [PTImage CreateWithFile: [doc GetSDFDoc] filename: appearance_img_path encoder_hints: [[PTObj alloc]init]]; PTSignatureWidget* approval_signature_widget = [[PTSignatureWidget alloc] initWithD: [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 in_password: keyfile_password]; // The actual approval signing will be done during the following incremental save operation. [doc SaveToFile: outpath flags: e_ptincremental];
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.
