    PdfShowDialogForPassword Property (GdViewer)
    In This Topic
    Enables or disables the option that allows you to utilize your own dialog box requesting a password if the PDF document to display is protected.

    If this property is set to true, the GdViewer control prompts the user automatically with the dialog box to insert the password if the PDF to display is protected. Changing this property to false will force the control to use your own dialog box. Then you will have to catch the PdfPasswordRequest event, respectively the PreviewPdfPasswordRequest event, to display your dialog box for entering the password.

    Syntax

       void set (    bool value);
    }

    Property Value

    The default value is true.
    Remarks
    Please note that this property is only meaningful for PDF documents.

    Be aware that without entering the correct password the required PDF document will not display.
