Sign document with Digital signature - advanced

GroupDocs.Signature provides DigitalSignOptions class to specify different amount of settings for Digital signature

Here are the steps to add Digital signature into document with GroupDocs.Signature:

  • Create new instance of Signature class and pass source document path as a constructor parameter.
  • Instantiate the DigitalSignOptions object with required certificate and its password.
  • Call Sign method of  Signature class instance and pass DigitalSignOptions to it.
  • Analyze SignResult result to check newly created signatures if needed.

This example shows how to add Digital signature to document. See SignResult

using (Signature signature = new Signature("sample.pdf"))
    // initialize digital option with certificate file path
    DigitalSignOptions options = new DigitalSignOptions("certificate.pfx")
        // certifiate password
        Password = "1234567890",
        // digital certificate details
        Reason = "Sign",
        Contact = "JohnSmith",
        Location = "Office1",
        // image as digital certificate appearance on document pages
        ImageFilePath = "sample.jpg",
        AllPages = true,
        Width = 80,
        Height = 60,
        VerticalAlignment = VerticalAlignment.Bottom,
        HorizontalAlignment = HorizontalAlignment.Right,
        Margin = new Padding() {  Bottom = 10, Right = 10},
