' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

set pdf = Server.CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.Pdf")

' Load a PDF to be signed.
' The "hello.pdf" is available at https://chilkatsoft.com/hello.pdf
success = pdf.LoadFile("qa_data/pdf/hello.pdf")
If (success = 0) Then
    Response.Write "<pre>" & Server.HTMLEncode( pdf.LastErrorText) & "</pre>"
    Response.End
End If

set json = Server.CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.JsonObject")

' Put the signature on page 1, top left
success = json.UpdateInt("page",1)
success = json.UpdateString("appearance.y","top")
success = json.UpdateString("appearance.x","left")

' Use a font scale of 10.0
success = json.UpdateString("appearance.fontScale","10.0")

' In this example, the appearance of the digital signature will contain three lines:
' 1) The signing certificate's common name
' 2) The current date/time
' 3) Some arbitrary text.
' The keyword "cert_cn" is replaced with the Certificate's Subject Common Name.
' The keyword "current_dt" is replaced with the current date/time.
' Any number of appearance text lines can be added.
success = json.UpdateString("appearance.text[0]","Digitally signed by: cert_cn")
success = json.UpdateString("appearance.text[1]","current_dt")
success = json.UpdateString("appearance.text[2]","The crazy brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.")

' Load a certificate by specifying the common name ("CN" part of the certificate's Subject)
set cert = Server.CreateObject("Chilkat_9_5_0.Cert")
success = cert.LoadByCommonName("Xyz Widgets, Inc.")
If (success = 0) Then
    Response.Write "<pre>" & Server.HTMLEncode( cert.LastErrorText) & "</pre>"
    Response.End
End If

' Tell the pdf object to use the certificate for signing.
success = pdf.SetSigningCert(cert)
If (success = 0) Then
    Response.Write "<pre>" & Server.HTMLEncode( pdf.LastErrorText) & "</pre>"
    Response.End
End If

If (success = 0) Then
    Response.Write "<pre>" & Server.HTMLEncode( pdf.LastErrorText) & "</pre>"
    Response.End
End If

Response.Write "<pre>" & Server.HTMLEncode( "The PDF has been successfully cryptographically signed.") & "</pre>"
