How do I edit Custom Properties of a document

Platform: WinForms |
Control: DocIO


CustomProperties of a document can be edited by replacing the existing value of the CustomProperty. This is done by using CustomDocumentProperties property of the document object. The following is the statement to set the value for a Custom Property.


//If the value of the CustomProperty is true the value is changed to " Sample_Edited" (or) " Sample_Not_Edited" if false.

 if ((string)document.CustomDocumentProperties["DocumentDescription1"].Value == "Sample")

 //where "DocumentDescription1" is the CustomProperty Name of the Document.

document.CustomDocumentProperties["DocumentDescription1"].Value = "Sample_Edited";


document.CustomDocumentProperties["DocumentDescription1"].Value = "Sample_Not_Edited";


' If the value of the CustomProperty is true the value is changed to " Sample_Edited" (or) "Sample_Not_Edited" if false.

 If CStr(document.CustomDocumentProperties("DocumentDescription1").Value) = "Sample" Then

 'where "DocumentDescription1" is the CustomProperty 'Name of the Document.

document.CustomDocumentProperties("DocumentDescription1").Value = "Sample_Edited"


document.CustomDocumentProperties("DocumentDescription1").Value = "Sample_Not_Edited"

End If
