How to set PDF Metadata in C# .NET Framework

Working with PDF metadata can be a bit of a tricky business if you are using C#, or really any language for that matter. To get set up easily and quickly, I will be showing you a nice little shortcut that will allow you to edit PDF metadata with minimal coding required. It’s a very simple two-step process, so let’s get straight in.

First we install our package, like so:

Install-Package Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert -Version 3.2.8

And following that we will call our function like this here:

using System;using System.Diagnostics;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Api;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Client;using Cloudmersive.APIClient.NET.DocumentAndDataConvert.Model;namespace Example{public class EditPdfSetMetadataExample{public void main(){// Configure API key authorization: ApikeyConfiguration.Default.AddApiKey("Apikey", "YOUR_API_KEY");// Uncomment below to setup prefix (e.g. Bearer) for API key, if needed// Configuration.Default.AddApiKeyPrefix("Apikey", "Bearer");var apiInstance = new EditPdfApi();var request = new SetPdfMetadataRequest(); // SetPdfMetadataRequest |try{// Sets PDF document metadatabyte[] result = apiInstance.EditPdfSetMetadata(request);Debug.WriteLine(result);}catch (Exception e){Debug.Print("Exception when calling EditPdfApi.EditPdfSetMetadata: " + e.Message );}}}}

Done! Super easy.
