Namespace:  Atalasoft.PdfDoc
Assembly:  Atalasoft.PdfDoc (in Atalasoft.PdfDoc.dll) Version: (.NET 4.5.2, x86)
public string GetCustomField(
	string name


Type: SystemString
The name of a custom field in the metadata. See AddCustomField(String, String) for restrictions.

Return Value

Type: String
A string containing the metadata.
The PDF specification requires that all custom field values be strings. It is possible, however, that some PDF files will contain illegal, non-string metadata. GetCustomField attempts to represent the data as a string. If it fails, it will throw an IllegalCastException. If client code is attempting to read specific, non-string data, it is best to get the data directly from the CustomFields property.
