Sample C# code to use PDFTron SDK's high-level digital signature API for digitally signing and/or certifying PDF files. Learn more about our C# PDF Library and PDF Digital Signature Library .

//----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
// This sample demonstrates the basic usage of the high-level digital signatures API in PDFNet.
//
// The following steps reflect typical intended usage of the digital signatures API:
//
//	0.	Start with a PDF with or without form fields in it that one would like to lock (or, one can add a field, see (1)).
//	
//	1.	EITHER: 
//		(a) Call doc.CreateDigitalSignatureField, optionally providing a name. You receive a DigitalSignatureField.
//		-OR-
//		(b) If you didn't just create the digital signature field that you want to sign/certify, find the existing one within the 
//		document by using PDFDoc.DigitalSignatureFieldIterator or by using PDFDoc.GetField to get it by its fully qualified name.
//	
//	2.	Create a signature widget annotation, and pass the DigitalSignatureField that you just created or found. 
//		If you want it to be visible, provide a Rect argument with a non-zero width or height, and don't set the
//		NoView and Hidden flags. [Optionally, add an appearance to the annotation when you wish to sign/certify.]
//		
//	[3. (OPTIONAL) Add digital signature restrictions to the document using the field modification permissions (SetFieldPermissions) 
//		or document modification permissions functions (SetDocumentPermissions) of DigitalSignatureField. These features disallow 
//		certain types of changes to be made to the document without invalidating the cryptographic digital signature once it
//		is signed.]
//		
//	4. 	Call either CertifyOnNextSave or SignOnNextSave. There are three overloads for each one (six total):
//		a.	Taking a PKCS #12 keyfile path and its password
//		b.	Taking a buffer containing a PKCS #12 private keyfile and its password
//		c.	Taking a unique identifier of a signature handler registered with the PDFDoc. This overload is to be used
//			in the following fashion: 
//			i)		Extend and implement a new SignatureHandler. The SignatureHandler will be used to add or 
//					validate/check a digital signature.
//			ii)		Create an instance of the implemented SignatureHandler and register it with PDFDoc with 
//					pdfdoc.AddSignatureHandler(). The method returns a SignatureHandlerId.
//			iii)	Call SignOnNextSaveWithCustomHandler/CertifyOnNextSaveWithCustomHandler with the SignatureHandlerId.
//		NOTE: It is only possible to sign/certify one signature per call to the Save function.
//	
//	5.	Call pdfdoc.Save(). This will also create the digital signature dictionary and write a cryptographic signature to it.
//		IMPORTANT: If there are already signed/certified digital signature(s) in the document, you must save incrementally
//		so as to not invalidate the other signature(s). 
//
// Additional processing can be done before document is signed. For example, UseSignatureHandler() returns an instance
// of SDF dictionary which represents the signature dictionary (or the /V entry of the form field). This can be used to
// add additional information to the signature dictionary (e.g. Name, Reason, Location, etc.).
//
// Although the steps above describes extending the SignatureHandler class, this sample demonstrates the use of
// StdSignatureHandler (a built-in SignatureHandler in PDFNet) to sign a PDF file.

// In order to use .NET Framework's Cryptography library, define "USE_DOTNET_CRYPTO" and then add System.Security to
// references list.
