Class: PDFDoc

PDFNet. PDFDoc


new PDFDoc()

PDFDoc is a high-level class describing a single PDF (Portable Document Format) document. Most applications using PDFNet will use this class to open existing PDF documents, or to create new PDF documents from scratch. The class offers a number of entry points into the document. For example, - To access pages use pdfdoc.GetPageIterator() or pdfdoc.PageFind(page_num). - To access form fields use pdfdoc.GetFieldIterator() or pdfdoc.FieldFind(name). - To access document's meta-data use pdfdoc.GetDocInfo(). - To access the outline tree use pdfdoc.GetFirstBookmark(). - To access low-level Document Catalog use pdfdoc.GetRoot(). ... The class also offers utility methods to slit and merge PDF pages, to create new pages, to flatten forms, to change security settings, etc.

initSecurityHandler()

Initializes document's SecurityHandler. This version of InitSecurityHandler() works with Standard and Custom PDF security and can be used in situations where the password is obtained dynamically via user feedback. See EncTest sample for example code. This function should be called immediately after an encrypted document is opened. The function does not have any side effects on documents that are not encrypted. If the security handler was successfully initialized it can be later obtained using GetSecurityHandler() method.

This function should be called immediately after an encrypted document is opened. The function does not have any side effects on documents that are not encrypted. If the security handler was successfully initialized, it can be later obtained using GetSecurityHandler() method.
Parameters:

password_sz number An optional parameter used to specify the size of the password buffer, in bytes. If the 'password_sz' is 0, or if the parameter is not specified, the function assumes that the string is null terminated.
Returns:
A promise that resolves to true if the given password successfully unlocked the document, false otherwise.
Type
Promise.<boolean>

initStdSecurityHandlerBuffer(password_buf)

Initializes document's SecurityHandler using the supplied password. This version of InitSecurityHandler() assumes that document uses Standard security and that a password is specified directly. This function should be called immediately after an encrypted document is opened. The function does not have any side effects on documents that are not encrypted. If the security handler was successfully initialized, it can be later obtained using GetSecurityHandler() method.
Parameters:
Name Type Description
password_buf ArrayBuffer | Int8Array | Uint8Array | Uint8ClampedArray Specifies the password used to open the document without any user feedback. If you would like to dynamically obtain the password, you need to derive a custom class from StdSecurityHandler() and use InitSecurityHandler() without any parameters.

Inserts a range of pages from specified PDFDoc using PageSet
Parameters:
Name Type Description
insert_before_page_number number the destination of the insertion. If less than or equal to 1, the pages are added to the beginning of the document. If larger than the number of pages in the destination document, the pages are appended to the document.
src_doc PDFNet.PDFDoc | PDFNet.SDFDoc | PDFNet.FDFDoc source PDFDoc to insert from
source_page_set PDFNet.PageSet a collection of the page number to insert
flag number

A promise that resolves to true if the document is/was originally encrypted false otherwise.
Type
Promise.<boolean>

isLinearized()

Call this function to determine whether the document is represented in linearized (fast web view) format.
Returns:
A promise that resolves to true if document is stored in fast web view format, false otherwise.
Type
Promise.<boolean>

isModified()

Call this function to determine whether the document has been modified since it was last saved.

jsContextInitialize()

Returns:
Type
Promise.<void>

lock()

Locks the document to prevent competing threads from accessing the document at the same time. Threads attempting to access the document will wait in suspended state until the thread that owns the lock calls doc.Unlock().
Returns:
Type
Promise.<void>

lockRead()

Locks the document to prevent competing write threads (using Lock()) from accessing the document at the same time. Other reader threads however, will be allowed to access the document. Threads attempting to obtain write access to the document will wait in suspended state until the thread that owns the lock calls doc.UnlockRead(). Note: To avoid deadlocks obtaining a write lock while holding a read lock is not permitted and will throw an exception. If this situation is encountered please either unlock the read lock before the write lock is obtained or acquire a write lock (rather than read lock) in the first place.
Returns:
Type
Promise.<void>
