Text and image signatures are among the popular types of signatures for digital documents. GroupDosc.Signature supports adding text and image signatures in the supported document formats. However, there could be the case when you need to scan a document to search if a document is signed with a particular text or image. The manual inspection of the whole document or a bunch of documents is not an efficient way. To deal with such a case, we have introduced the feature of searching text or image signatures.

GroupDocs.Signature for .NET provides various options in TextSearchOptions class for searching the text signatures including:

  • Text – The signature text to match on searching.
  • AllPages – Flag to search on each page of the document.
  • MatchType – Specifies the match types such as exact match, contains, starts with and ends with.
  • PageNumber – For searching on a specific page.
  • PagesSetup – To specify if you want to search on even/odd pages, first/last page or on the arbitrary page numbers.

The following code sample shows how to search a text signature in a document.

Searching Image Signature

For searching image signatures, the API provides ImageSeachOptions class which contains the following options:

  • AllPages – Flag to search on each page of the document.
  • PageNumber – For searching on a specific page.

The following code sample shows how to search the image signature in a document.

We received a number of requests from our customers to provide the support of .NET Core. Therefore, we have added the support of .NET Standard 2.0 in our latest release. Now, you can use the API in .NET Framework as well as in .NET Core for the cross-platform development.
