In my LaTeX report I want to include a dotted signature line and my name below that line. As in the image. Can someone help me with the LaTeX code for that?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • It is a matter of simple placements and line breaks. Use the minipage environment to contain each of the four items. Use the dashrule package to get your dotted lines. This post might be of some help. You may want to define one or two macros if you want. But I suggest that you do that yourself. Using macros gives you the sweet taste of LaTeX. – Masroor Jun 7 '14 at 16:18

This should get you started.

\documentclass{article}
\newcommand{\sign}[1]{%      
  \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}l@{}}
  \makebox[1.5in]{\dotfill}\\
  \strut#1\strut
  \end{tabular}%
}
\newcommand{\Date}{%
  \begin{tabular}[t]{@{}p{1.5in}@{}}
  \\[-2ex]
  \strut Date: \dotfill\strut
  \end{tabular}%
}


\begin{document}
  \noindent
  \begin{minipage}[t]{0.4\linewidth}
    \raggedright
    \sign{Supervisor}
    \par
    Mr.\,L. L. Silva\par
    Department of Computing and Information Systems, \par
    Faculty of Applied Sciences, \par
    University of Moratuwa
  \end{minipage}%
  \hfill
  \begin{minipage}[t]{0.4\linewidth}
    \sign{Signature of the supervisor}
    \Date
  \end{minipage}


  \vspace{1cm}
  \noindent
  \begin{minipage}[t]{0.4\linewidth}
