PDFFile Constructor(string,string)

Initializes a new PDFFile object and associated it with the name of a PDF file and the password used to decrypt it.
public PDFFile( 
   string fileName, 
   string password 
Public Function New( _ 
   ByVal fileName As String, _ 
   ByVal password As String _ 
public PDFFile( 
   java.lang.String fileName, 
   java.lang.String password 
   String^ fileName, 
   String^ password 


The name of the file associated with this PDFFile.

The password associated with the PDF file at fileName.


This constructor will initialize the properties of the PDFFile object as follows:

After the filename and optional password are set, call the Load method to populate the DocumentProperties and Pages properties of this PDFFile object with the values read from the file.

In certain situation, you may want to associate a PDFFile with a Postscript and not a PDF file. For example, to create a PDFFile object and call its Distill method to convert the Postscript file to PDF.

PDF files password must be 64 ASCII characters or less. This is defined by the PDFDocument.MaximumPasswordLength constant. LEADTOOLS will automatically convert the password string to ASCII and truncate if required.


This example will determine whether a PDF file is encrypted, ask the user for a password then open it.
