PdfDocumentProcessor.SaveDocument(String, PdfSaveOptions) Method

Saves the current PDF document to the specified file path with encryption and sign settings.

Namespace: DevExpress.Pdf

Assembly: DevExpress.Docs.v22.2.dll

Declaration

public void SaveDocument(
    string path,
    PdfSaveOptions options
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
path String

A String, specifying the path to the directory to which the PDF document should be saved.

options PdfSaveOptions

A PdfSaveOptions that contains the encryption and sign settings of a PDF document that should be saved.

Remarks

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

Important

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

Example

This example shows how a PDF document can be protected using both the owner and user passwords.

        // Load a PDF document.
        pdfDocumentProcessor.LoadDocument("..\\..\\Demo.pdf");

        // Specify printing, data extraction, modification, and interactivity permissions.

        encryptionOptions.ModificationPermissions = PdfDocumentModificationPermissions.DocumentAssembling;
        encryptionOptions.InteractivityPermissions = PdfDocumentInteractivityPermissions.Allowed;

        // Specify the owner and user passwords for the document.  
        encryptionOptions.OwnerPasswordString = "OwnerPassword";
        encryptionOptions.UserPasswordString = "UserPassword";

        // Specify the 256-bit AES encryption algorithm.
         encryptionOptions.Algorithm = PdfEncryptionAlgorithm.AES256;

        // Save the protected document with encryption settings.  
        pdfDocumentProcessor.SaveDocument("..\\..\\ProtectedDocument.pdf", new PdfSaveOptions() { EncryptionOptions = encryptionOptions });
        }
