Determine PDF/A conformity level

Post by AnMuWK » Wed Mar 11, 2020 8:55 am


I did not manage do find anything in the SDK documentation so I am posting my question here.

I want to find out for a given PDF whether it adheres to PDF/A conformity and, if it does, which PDF/A conformity level it adheres to exactly (A-1b, A-2a, A-2u, etc.).

Is it possible to get this information with the SDK? If it does, could you provide a code sample?

Thanks in advance,

Hello Andreas,

You can get the IPXC_DocumentProps from the IPXC_Document by using the get_Props and then the get_PDFStandard property with the PXC_PDFStandard enum.
