Subscribing for verification process events

Signatureclass contains several events that are being called for different verification process stages

  • VerifyStarted to handle process start event. This event is occur once Verify method is called
  • VerifyProgress to handle progress event. This event occurs each time on verifying each signature was completed.
  • VerifyCompleted to handle completion event. This event occurs once Verify process was completed.    

Here are the steps to subscribe for verification process with GroupDocs.Signature:

  • Define required handler delegates to process signing events.

  • Create new instance of Signature class and pass source document path or stream as a constructor parameter.

  • Subscribe for required events

  • Instantiate required VerifyOptions object

  • Call Verify method of Signatureclass instance and pass verify options in it

Implement method for VerifyStarted event

GroupDocs.Signature expects ProcessStartEventHandler delegate to subscribe for VerifyStarted event

private static void OnVerifyStarted(Signature signature, ProcessStartEventArgs args)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Verify process started at {0} with {1} total signatures to be put in document", args.Started, args.TotalSignatures);
}

Implement method for VerifyProgress event

 private static void OnVerifyProgress(Signature signature, ProcessProgressEventArgs args)
 {
     Console.WriteLine("Verify progress. Processed {0} signatures. Time spent {1} mlsec", args.ProcessedSignatures, args.Ticks);
 }

Implement method for VerifyCompleted event

private static void OnVerifyCompleted(Signature signature, ProcessCompleteEventArgs args)
{
    Console.WriteLine("Verify process completed at {0} with {1} total signatures. Process took {2} mlsec", args.Completed, args.TotalSignatures, args.Ticks);
}

}
/// <summary>
/// Verify document with text signature applying specific options and subscribe for events
/// </summary>
public static void Run()
{
    // The path to the documents directory.
    string filePath = Constants.SAMPLE_PDF;
    using (Signature signature = new Signature(filePath))
    {
        signature.VerifyStarted += OnVerifyStarted;
        signature.VerifyProgress += OnVerifyProgress;
        signature.VerifyCompleted += OnVerifyCompleted;
        TextVerifyOptions options = new TextVerifyOptions("John Smith")
        {
           AllPages = true
        };
        // verify document
        VerificationResult result = signature.Verify(options);
        if (result.IsValid)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("\nDocument was verified successfully!");
        }
        else
        {
            Console.WriteLine("\nDocument failed verification process.");
        }
    }
}
