Signature Field

Hi there,

i want to add a Field for a digital Signature (not the Signature itself) to a word document. Is there any chance to do so via Aspose?

Cheers Rob


sorry i found out late, that there now exists the SignatureLine/Options Class. Are there further examples somewhere, how to insert to an existing Document?

Thanks Rob

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your inquiry. You can insert a signature line in Word document by using the following code:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

SignatureLineOptions options = new SignatureLineOptions();
options.setSigner("Awais Hafeez");


Hope, this helps.

Best regards,

Thanks for your help, that worked out perfectly for this purposeā€¦

Hi Awais,

as of the Documentation of Word, there is another property in the signatureline that is not covered by Aspose. The SignatureProvider. Details from VBA you can find here:

would be good to have a chance to set this via Aspose as well. May this be added to the change Requests

Thanks and Regards
