Elements to exclude from signaturesAdded by IBM on October 10, 2012 | Version 1 (Original)
|Certain items should always be excluded from signatures to ensure that the Viewer can update properly.
There are certain form elements that you should always exclude from signatures. For example, when you click a submit button, the triggeritem option is automatically set, recording the name of the button that triggered the submission. However, if a signature been applied to the triggeritem option, the Viewer will not be able to update the option correctly.
In general, you should always exclude the following form elements from a signature:
- the triggeritem option
- the coordinates option
- any portion of the form that subsequent users will change
- subsequent signatures and signature buttons
- the signature item that stores the information for the signature you are creating
