Insert signature field in pdf file

I’m evaluating Aspose.Pdf for .NET and Aspose.Words for .NET, to convert a doc file in a pdf file;

I need to add a signature field to the file generated and another application will sign the file.

I read some posts about this: ;
in these posts it’s written that this feature isn’t supported, are there some news about this?

I would like to put a kind of field as described in Adobe article, but I think this is a proprietary solution of Adobe;

So, I would like to put a form field (not an image field) , the other application then find this form field and apply to it a digital sign.



Hello Mario,

Thanks for considering Aspose

Adding form field to a Pdf document is possible using Aspose.Pdf.Kit. Like an HTML page, a PDF document may contain an interactive form (sometimes referred to as an AcroForm) made up of various form fields such as Text Boxes, Check Boxes, Radio Buttons, Drop-Down Lists and Push Buttons etc., for gathering information from the user. So, such an interactive form in a PDF document is called PDF Form.

Hi Mario,

The signature field is still not supported and we can't support it in short time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
