Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to generate an enveloping XML signature.

   XmlNode^ node = document->CreateNode( XmlNodeType::Element, "", "MyElement", "samples" );
   node->InnerText = "This is some text";
   document->AppendChild( node );
   Console::Error->WriteLine( "Data to sign:\n{0}\n", document->OuterXml );
   
   // Create the SignedXml message.

   // Create a data object to hold the data to sign.

Remarks

Use the DataObject class to store information or metadata directly in an XML signature. For example, you can store the signature generation date or the signer's identity. The DataObject class may or may not be covered by the XML signature.

The class corresponds to the <Object> element in the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) specification for XML Signatures. For more information about the W3C specification, see https://www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/.
