    Hi,
    Where can I find the metadata of a PDF file e.g. the Author of a document.
    I use the RadFixedDocument class - wrong?

    (UI for WinForms, v.2014.1.226.20)

    Thanx in advance
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    At this point the RadPdfProcessing library does not allow to set metadata to the exported PDF document. The feature is on top of our backlog and hopefully we will be able to implement it for Q1 2015. You can follow the item in our feedback portal related to this to be notified about our progress: Implement support for meta tags.

    Hi Petya,
    thanks for the response. Primarily I want the READ the metadata (especially the author's name) of any PDF document - is there any way to do this?

    Regards
    Tom

    Hello,

    I'm afraid I cannot suggest a way to achieve that. When importing a document with the RadPdfProcessing library it is translated to the internal document model with base class RadFixedDocument. However, for the time being the model has no concept of metadata, so there is no way to preserve that information.
