Sets a document information.
The function sets or changes a document info entry. This function supports also user defined keys which can be created or changed if necessary. If the parameter DocInfo is set to Custom the parameter Key must contain a unique key.
The following keywords are reserved and must not be used as user defined keys:
  • Author
* CreationDate
* GTS_PDFXVersion
  • Keywords
* ModifyDate
* Producer
* Subject
* Title
* Trapped
Note that the function does not check whether a reserved key is used. Using such a key causes maybe errors which are mostly not reported in viewer applications.
User defined keys should be defined as 7 bit ASCII string and the usage of special characters like /, \, #, or character codes higher than 127 should be avoided. The value of the document info entry should not contain binary data.
Modification date can't be set and will always be updated when PDF is closed.
