CheckboxFormFieldSignature chbSignature = new CheckboxFormFieldSignature("chbData1", true);
// instantiate options based on text form field signature
FormFieldSignOptions optionsTextCHB = new FormFieldSignOptions(chbSignature) ;           
optionsTextCHB.setHorizontalAlignment(HorizontalAlignment.Center);
optionsTextCHB.setVerticalAlignment(VerticalAlignment.Top);

// analyzing result
System.out.print("List of newly created signatures:");
int number = 1;
for(BaseSignature temp : signResult.getSucceeded())
{
    System.out.print("Signature #"+ number++ +": Type: "+temp.getSignatureType()+" Id:"+temp.getSignatureId()+
            ",Location: "+temp.getLeft()+"x"+temp.getTop()+". Size: "+temp.getWidth()+"x"+temp.getHeight());
