Hi Team,
I need to know “How I can add Signature in signature form field of existing PDF?”.
I am successfully add signature in new/existing PDF document but it creates new signature field but i want to add signature in my existing form field.
Document document=new Document(“Test.pdf”);
OutputStream out = new;;
PdfFileSignature sign = new PdfFileSignature();
sign.bindPdf(new ByteArrayInputStream(((ByteArrayOutputStream) out).toByteArray()));
pdfSignSingle.sign(field.getPageIndex(), true,new java.awt.Rectangle(500,500,500,500),new PKCS1(“test_sign.pfx”, “test12345”)); pdfSignSingle.setSignatureAppearance(“test_logo.jpeg”);“out.pdf”);

You may please use following code snippet in order to add signatures to existing field:

Document doc = new Document(dataDir + "PDF FORM.pdf");
// if signature field name is knows
//SignatureField signField = (SignatureField)doc.getForm().get("SignatureFieldName");
for(Field field : doc.getForm().getFields()){
 if(field instanceof SignatureField){
    // Create PdfFileSignature instance
   com.aspose.pdf.facades.PdfFileSignature pdfSignSingle = new com.aspose.pdf.facades.PdfFileSignature();
   // Bind the source PDF by reading contents of Stream
   // Sign the PDF file using PKCS1 object
   PKCS7 pkcs = new PKCS7(dataDir + "mykey2.pfx", "aa");
   SignatureCustomAppearance sca = new SignatureCustomAppearance();

   pdfSignSingle.sign(1, true, field.getRectangle(true).toRect(), pkcs);
   // Set image for signature appearance
   pdfSignSingle.setSignatureAppearance(dataDir + "avatar.png");
   // Save final output + "signed.pdf");

Thank you for your support.
