Coldfusion 9 and PDF Digital Signature

Posted on 2012-08-20
Last Modified: 2012-09-22
Hello. Our website was developed in Coldfusion 9.  One component of the website is our registration process: User fills out a form, and Coldfusion generates a PDF form that is mailed to the user. The user then prints out the form, gets an original signature and returns the form to us.

We would like to implement digital signature into our current process, and I'm having trouble finding out if it can be done with PDFs generated through Coldfusion 9.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

    I resolved this myself. Here's what I did:

    1. Created a PDF with the digital signature fields.
    2.Populated my signature PDF into my registration form, using CFPDFFORM as follows:

          <cfset filename = Form.accountNumber & ".pdf">
                      <cfdocumentitem type="footer"><cfoutput>Page #cfdocument.currentpagenumber# of #cfdocument.totalpagecount#</cfoutput></cfdocumentitem>
    <cfpdfform source="signature_page.pdf" action="populate" />
