BookMark.Title encoding

Hi.

I have a word document with a bookmark named "Test". I convert the document to pdf with

wordDocument.SaveToPdf method. And then I want to get the bookmark title. I use the code below:

foreach (BookMark bookMark in pdfBookMarkEditor.ExtractBookMarks())

{

Console.WriteLine(bookMark.Title);

}

Output is: "T e s t". When I use "QuickWatch" to get title I see "\0T\0e\0s\0t".

How can I encode this to "Text"? Do you have an example?

Hi

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Thanks for your inquiry. I think this issue is related to Aspose.Pdf.Kit. I used the following code for testing:

// Create simple docuemnt with bookamrk.

Document doc = new Document();

DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

builder.Write("This is simple docuemnt with bookmark.");

builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);

builder.Write("Here is bookmark");

builder.StartBookmark("Test");

builder.EndBookmark("Test");

// Save document to PDF.

PdfOptions opt = new PdfOptions();

opt.BookmarksOutlineLevel = 1;

doc.SaveToPdf(0, doc.PageCount, @"Test001\out.pdf", opt);

// Open generated PDF using Aspose.PDf.Kit and get bookmarks.

Aspose.Pdf.Kit.PdfBookMarkEditor bookMarkEditor = new PdfBookMarkEditor();

bookMarkEditor.BindPdf(@"Test001\out.pdf");

foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Kit.BookMark mark in bookMarkEditor.ExtractBookMarks())

{

Console.WriteLine(mark.Title);

}

Adobe Acrobat Reader shows bookmark name properly, but Aspose.Pdf.Kit reads it with ‘\0’ characters. I will move this thread to Aspose.Pdf.Kit forum. My colleagues will answer you shortly.

Best regards.

As a workaround you can just remove \0 character from bookmark title:

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

// Open generated PDF using Aspose.PDf.Kit and get bookmarks.

Aspose.Pdf.Kit.PdfBookMarkEditor bookMarkEditor = new PdfBookMarkEditor();

bookMarkEditor.BindPdf(@"Test001\out.pdf");

foreach (Aspose.Pdf.Kit.BookMark mark in bookMarkEditor.ExtractBookMarks())

{

Console.WriteLine(mark.Title.Replace("\0", ""));

}

Best regards.

Hi Den,

We have tested the issue at our end using the latest version of Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET and couldn’t notice any problem with the bookmarks. Please download Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET 3.8 and test the issue at your side.

If you still find any issue with the bookmarks then try the following code:


//create bookmark

PdfBookMarkEditor editor = new PdfBookMarkEditor();

editor.BindPdf(Helper.TestData + “PDFKITNET-11643.pdf”);

BookMark bookMark = new BookMark();

bookMark.Title = “Test”;

bookMark.PageNumber = 0;

bookMark.Action = “GoTo”;

editor.CreateBookmarks(bookMark);

editor.Save(Helper.TestOut + “PDFKITNET-11643.pdf”);



//extract bookmark

Aspose.Pdf.Kit.PdfBookMarkEditor bookMarkEditor = new PdfBookMarkEditor();

bookMarkEditor.BindPdf(Helper.TestOut + “PDFKITNET-11643.pdf”);

string result = string.Empty;

foreach (BookMark mark in bookMarkEditor.ExtractBookMarks())

result += mark.Title;

Assert.AreEqual(result, “Test”);


This code creates bookmarks and then extract them using Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET. If you still find problem with this code as well then please do let us know.

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.
