See more PDF Signatures Examples

This example explains how the width and height of the signature appearance rectangle box is determined.

Note: This example requires Chilkat v9.5.0.85 or greater.

    // 1) The width and height (in points) are both explicitly specified.
    //    User space coordinates use "points" where 72 points equals 1 inch.
    //    For example (3 inches wide and 1 inch high)
    //    The fontScale is automatically chose to fit.  In addition, if a graphic (JPG or built-in SVG) is included,
    //    it is automatically scaled such that the text + graphic fit together in the specified rectangle.
    //    Note: When both height and width are explicitly specified, the resultant signature appearance rectangle
    //    will match one of the dimensions, but the other dimension will be equal or smaller.  This is because the text
    //    must be proportionally scaled.

    // if Chilkat chose a fontScale to fill the height, the resulting text's width would be too long for the desired width. 
    

    // 2) The width is explicitly specified, but we use the keyword "auto" for height.
    //    In this case, the fontScale is chosen to achieve the desired width,
    //    and the height will be whatever the result of the chosen font scale.
    //    In this example, the width is 4 inches, and the height is "auto".
    Get ComUpdateInt Of hoJson "appearance.width" (72 * 4) To iSuccess
    Get ComUpdateString Of hoJson "appearance.height" "auto" To iSuccess

    // The signature would have this appearance: 
    

    // 3) The height is explicitly specified, but we use the keyword "auto" for width.
    //    In this case, the fontScale is chosen to achieve the desired height,

    // The signature would have this appearance.
    

    // 4) Finally, we don't need to specify width/height at all.  Instead, we can choose a fontScale
    //    and the dimensions of the PDF signature appearance's rectangle will be the result of using the
    //    specified fontScale.
