Question:I have purchased a number of eBooks in PDF format and unfortunately the publishers have not set the Title, Author and Subject properties. You can see this on a document by accessing the file Properties dialog and selecting the PDF tab. This is a real pain when attempting to use the PDF eBook on an eReader device. So I guess if there is a solution on VeryPDF? If no library is available I'd appreciate any other technique.
Answer: According to your needs, maybe you can have a free trial of this software: VeryPDF Advanced PDF Tools SDK. By this software, you can edit PDF description, PDF custom description, PDF OpenAction options, PDF page view options, PDF metadata contents, and so on. Meanwhile, the SDK version software allows you to call it together from C#, VB .NET, MS Visual Basic, Borland Delphi, VBA (MS Office products such as Access) and C++ via COM, C and C++ via native C.

Step 2. Modify PDF document properties from Visual C++
- Here is some code of calling Advanced PDF Tools SDK from Visual C++ for modifying PDF document properties.
__declspec(dllexport) int WINAPI VeryPDF_PDFTools(LPCTSTR lpCommand);
char *lpLicenseKey = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXX";
sprintf(szCommandLine,"pdftools.exe \"-$\" \"%s\" -x \"0 0 612 792\" -j \"612 792 true\" -i \"%s\" -o \"%s\"",
lpLicenseKey, "C:\\test.pdf", "C:\\_test.pdf");
int nRet = VeryPDF_PDFTools(szCommandLine);
VB Example 2:
Private Sub VBCOMTest_Click()
Dim nRet As Long
Dim strCmd As String
strCmd = "pdftools.exe" & " -x ""0 0 612 792"" -j ""612 792 true"""
strCmd = strCmd & " -$ XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
strCmd = strCmd & " -i C:\test.pdf"
strCmd = strCmd & " -o C:\_test.pdf"
Set PDFToolsCOM = CreateObject("PDFTools.PDFToolsCOM")
nRet = PDFToolsCOM.com_VeryPDF_PDFTools(strCmd)
Set PDFToolsCOM = Nothing
