PackageDigitalSignatureManager.VerifySignatures(Boolean) PackageDigitalSignatureManager.VerifySignatures(Boolean) PackageDigitalSignatureManager.VerifySignatures(Boolean) PackageDigitalSignatureManager.VerifySignatures(Boolean) Method

Definition

Verifies the signatures on all signed parts within the package.

public:
 System::IO::Packaging::VerifyResult VerifySignatures(bool exitOnFailure);
public System.IO.Packaging.VerifyResult VerifySignatures (bool exitOnFailure);
member this.VerifySignatures : bool -> System.IO.Packaging.VerifyResult
Public Function VerifySignatures (exitOnFailure As Boolean) As VerifyResult

Parameters

exitOnFailure
Boolean Boolean Boolean Boolean

true to exit on first failure; otherwise, false to continue and check all signatures.

Returns

Success (value 0) if all signatures are verified successfully; otherwise, an enumeration that identifies the error.

Examples

The following example shows how to use this method to validate all signed parts within a package. For the complete sample, see Creating a Package with a Digital Signature Sample.

Remarks

This method verifies only the digital signatures; it does not verify the related X.509 certificates. The VerifyCertificate method can be used to verify the X.509 certificates.
