Using the Component

Installing XpdfAnalyze

Before using the XpdfAnalyze component, it must be registered on your system. Normally the installer will take care of that for you. If you need to register manually, you can run the command:
regsvr32 XpdfAnalyze.dll

Referencing XpdfAnalyze

To use the XpdfAnalyze component in a Visual Studio project, select the "References..." command on the "Projects" menu, go to the "COM" tab, and check the box next to XpdfAnalyze.

Instantiating an XpdfAnalyze Object

The code needed to instantiate an XpdfAnalyze object depends on your development environment. In VB6:
Dim pdf As XpdfAnalyze.XpdfAnalyze Set pdf = New XpdfAnalyze.XpdfAnalyze
In ASP VBScript:
Set pdf = Server.CreateObject("Xpdf.XpdfAnalyze")
Dim pdf As XpdfAnalyze.XpdfAnalyze pdf = New XpdfAnalyze.XpdfAnalyze
In C#:
XpdfAnalyze.XpdfAnalyze pdf; pdf = new XpdfAnalyze.XpdfAnalyze();
In Delphi:
var pdf: IXpdfAnalyze; begin pdf := CoXpdfAnalyze_.Create;

Working with XpdfAnalyze

Once you've instantiated an XpdfAnalyze object, you can load PDF files and retrieve metadata. Typical code looks like this:
pdf.loadFile "c:/test/file.pdf" title = pdf.title MsgBox "title: " & title


VBScript does not support functions with output arguments, so some COM functions will not be available from VBScript.
