Signature Line RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to automate insertion of a signature line in word documents.
    Since I know who the user is I would like to skip the dialogs shown by Word
    if you do it by clickin on the insert/Signature line button.

    if I do the following:

    Dim signt As Microsoft.Office.Core.Signature = oDoc.Signatures.Add()

    I get only the sign dialog and a Signature line is inserted, however nothing
    is shown in the document.

    If I do the following:

    Dim signt As Microsoft.Office.Core.Signature =

    signt.Sign(Nothing, "My Name", "President", "")


    I first get a dialog where to input name, title, email etc. If I just click
    OK (not entering anything) I get the sign dialog and then a new signature is
    added with the data I added in the call to the Sign method. The image and
    information is shown in the document.

    The second aproach would be fine if I atleast could get rid of the first
    dialog but I have found no way so far. Anybody knows? It would be even better
    if I could also get rid of the second dialog.

  • Hi Rui,


    Thanks for your post.

    Do you mean the dialog is the illustration below:


    If so, I think you can check the “Don’t show this message again” item to prevent the dialog from popping up from now on.
