Hello! Excuse me for my english, I'm just a russian student.
I have a question:
In my litle program, working with PDF-files, I need to fill into listBox an encoding of existing PDF file. How can I do this using so Syncfusion classes, like PDFLoadedDocument, PDFLoadedPages, PDFLoadedPage etc.?

Thank you for your help, but I have one another problem: when my program extracts text from existing PDF, the symbols in this text are not conform to symbols in source PDF. I think the problem is in different encodings in program and PDF. So I want to extract the information about PDF encoding to text- or list-Box. But I don't know, what property in using classes charged with this information.
P.S.: PDF contains russian symbols, maybe problem is in this?
