PdfDocumentProcessor.SaveDocument(String) Method

Saves the current document to the specified file path.

Namespace: DevExpress.Pdf

Assembly: DevExpress.Docs.v21.1.dll


public void SaveDocument(
    string path


Name Type Description
path String

A String value, specifying the location of the saved document.


The PDF Document API component locks a file while a document is saved (since the SaveDocument method uses the detachStream parameter set to false). To unlock the file, call another overloaded SaveDocument method with the detachStream parameter enabled.


The PdfDocumentProcessor removes existing signatures from a document when it is saved. However, if you use PdfDocumentProcessor to apply a signature, it is retained.

The code sample below rotates document pages and saves the result:

using DevExpress.Pdf;

namespace PdfPageRotationExample
  class Program
      static void Main(string[] args)
        using (PdfDocumentProcessor pdfDocumentProcessor = new PdfDocumentProcessor())
          int angle = 0;
          foreach (PdfPage page in pdfDocumentProcessor.Document.Pages) {
              angle = (angle + 90) % 360;
              page.Rotate = angle;
