Namespace:  RadPdf.Web.UI
Assembly:  RadPdf (in RadPdf.dll) Version: (
public bool EnableRedaction { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: Boolean
true if the redaction tools are shown and and not shown in the GUI; otherwise false. As this is an experimental feature, the default value is false.

When enabled, new PdfWhiteoutShape objects will also redact searchable text inside the object's bounds (e.g. Left, Top, Width, Height).

Setting this property to true will also show an option to toggle the text redaction feature on a per object level (RedactText) when viewing the properties of PdfWhiteoutShape objects.

This feature is experimental. Please use at your own risk!

Because redaction is an experimental feature, the default value or behavior may change in a future release!

Redaction is limited to searchable text content in the page. Image and vector content will not be removed at this time (but may be in a future release). This means that images of text or text which has been vectorized will remain in the output PDF document!

Any character / glyph touching or inside the bounds of the newly added PdfWhiteoutShapes will be removed from the page content stream. This may cause unexpected results if text is overlapping or close together.

Additionally, no redaction will be done on any metadata, annotations, form fields, file attachments, or other aspects of the PDF.
