Xamarin - Decrypting PDFs not supported?

Thread ID:

Asked On May 20, 2016 07:26 AM UTC

Hello all,
I am using Syncfusion PDF library in my Xamarin project and I am trying to decrypt a PDF using the user password and I keep getting: System.NotSupportedException: Encrypted Document are currently not supported.
I can understand the meaning of the exception, but I was just wondering if there is any way of doing what I need to do.

Hi Costas, 

Sorry for the inconvenience caused, 

Currently we don’t have the support to encrypt and decrypt PDF document in xamarin platform and we don’t have any workaround to achieve this so we have already logged the feature request in our database, 
We will update once the feature has been implemented. 

Please let us know if you need further assistance. 

With Regards,
