public bool IsEncrypted { get; }

Property Value

Type: Boolean


This property exists to help you sort documents that are encrypted from those that are not. If you attempt to load an encrypted document using Aspose.Words without supplying a password an exception will be thrown. You can use this property to detect whether a document requires a password and take some action before loading a document, for example, prompt the user for a password.


Shows how to use the FileFormatUtil class to detect the document format and encryption.
Document doc = new Document();

// Configure a SaveOptions object to encrypt the document
// with a password when we save it, and then save the document.
OdtSaveOptions saveOptions = new OdtSaveOptions(SaveFormat.Odt);
saveOptions.Password = "MyPassword";

doc.Save(ArtifactsDir + "File.DetectDocumentEncryption.odt", saveOptions);

// Verify the file type of our document, and its encryption status.
FileFormatInfo info = FileFormatUtil.DetectFileFormat(ArtifactsDir + "File.DetectDocumentEncryption.odt");

Assert.AreEqual(".odt", FileFormatUtil.LoadFormatToExtension(info.LoadFormat));
