Overview‎ > ‎Creating proofs‎ > ‎

createProofVersion()

This process works in the same way as createProof() and takes an additional parent proof Id (ParentFileID). When calling the createProof() method the system generates the first version of the proof. Subsequent versions are created using createProofVersion(). If this is the second version being created for a proof then the ParentFileID should equal the file_id obtained from createProof(). Alternatively, the ParentFileID should equal the file_id from the last proof version obtained from createProofVersion().

Note: in order to make all functionality (such as text selection) available when creating a file proof its important to provide the file name along with it's extension. The "SourceName" parameter is used to determine the extension and file type.
