Class Document

Opens an existing document.


public  Document( BinaryReader  reader OpenOptions  options )


BinaryReader reader
The reader from which the document is read.

OpenOptions options
Options for opening the document.

The document should have no open password set.

This method gives you full control how the document is read. It requires that the binary reader remains open during the lifetime of the document.

When using the BinaryReader we will read information you need on demand only (note: you should not close/dispose the stream and/or binaryreader during the hole session you need the document, or pages, bookmarks, info extracted from it.), so when you hit page 10 , we skip (internally we seek to the correct position) all other pages and return you page 10. When you after that request say page 5 we seek back and read that page. In this mode we do not read more information than needed, we do not read the whole document in memory either.

Using is very simple, sample code: FileStream fileStream = new FileStream( @"in.pdf", FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read ); BinaryReader reader = new BinaryReader( fileStream ); Document source = new Document( reader );
