Functionality to work with metadata of .pub files provided by Aspose.PUB for C++

A document’s metadata describes its properties such as author, tile, company, language, and other similar information. Aspose.PUB for C++ can read the metadata information as well as update it during PUB to PDF conversion. The following sample code shows how to read a .pub file, edit its metadata and convert to PDF. But first, a license object is initialized and set with a license file located in a specific directory.

 1    // Initialize the license object
 2    auto license = System::MakeObject<Aspose::Pub::License>();
 3    // Set the license
 4    license->SetLicense(dataDir() + u"License\\Aspose.PUB.C++.lic");
 6    System::String filePub = dataDir() + u"";
 7    System::String filePdf = dataDir() + u"1.pdf";
 9    System::Console::WriteLine(u"Convert starting...");
11    System::SharedPtr<IPubParser> parser = PubFactory::CreateParser(filePub);
12    System::SharedPtr<Document> document = parser->Parse();
14    document->get_DocumentSummaryInfo()->SetCompany(u"company");
15    document->get_DocumentSummaryInfo()->SetCategory(u"category");
16    document->get_DocumentSummaryInfo()->SetLanguage(u"language");
18    document->get_SummaryInfo()->SetAuthor(u"author");
19    document->get_SummaryInfo()->SetComments(u"comments");
20    document->get_SummaryInfo()->SetTitle(u"title");
21    document->get_SummaryInfo()->SetSubject(u"subject");
22    document->get_SummaryInfo()->SetKeywords(u"keywords");
24    // Convert PUB to PDF
25    PubFactory::CreatePdfConverter()->ConvertToPdf(document, filePdf);
27    System::Console::WriteLine(u"Convert done.");

This and other functionality provided by Aspose.PUB is also implemented into a set of cross-platform applications to manipulate .pub files.
