Signing a formAdded by IBM on August 8, 2013 | Version 1 (Original)
|This page describes the signer option and signature item which are automatically created when a user clicks the signature button.
When a user clicks a signature button, the Viewer automatically creates the following elements in the form:
While you do not need to create the signature item yourself, the following code shows the options typically used in a signature item:
- A signer option is added to the signature button. This option contains the signer's name and e-mail address. However, the value assigned to this option depends on the signature engine that was used to sign the form.
- A signature item is created on the same page as the signature button. This item is given the name indicated in the button's signature option, and is used to store the details of the signature.
The signature item will also include any of the filtering options used in the signature button. See also making signatures mandatory for information on assigning values to unsigned buttons.
