Enable/disable the password dialog.
[read/write property] showPasswordDialog([out, retval] VARIANT_BOOL *show) showPasswordDialog([in] VARIANT_BOOL show)
When an encrypted PDF file is opened (with
loadFile, etc.), XpdfViewer will display a password dialog, requesting the user to type the password. This function can be used to disable that behavior. The PDF loading functions (
loadFile, etc.) will instead throw an error (
errEncrypted) whenever you attempt to load an encrypted file. You can always open an encrypted file using
loadFileWithPassword, etc., which will never display a password dialog (assuming the correct password is provided).
viewer.showPasswordDialog = False
