Gets/Sets user password.
The user password is used to protect the PDF file from unauthorized viewing. Once set, you will be asked to enter a password whenever you try to open the document. If you enable any security feature, be sure to set the owner password (through SecurityOwnerPassword property) or the user password. If you set both passwords, they should be different.
Also bear in mind that if the user password is set but no owner password is specified, the permission flags are ignored and full permissions are granted for all operations. In other words, the permission flags are only respected when there is an owner password.
Note that once security is enabled (by setting the Security property to True), it is important to set the encryption bit length (via the SecurityEncryption property) first before specifying any other security settings. The sample code below illustrates the proper order.
Set oPrinter = CreateObject("easyPDF.Printer.8") Set oPrintJob = oPrinter.PrintJob Set oPDFSetting = oPrintJob.PDFSetting oPDFSetting.Security = True oPDFSetting.SecurityEncryption = PRN_SEC_ENCRYPT_128BITS oPDFSetting.SecurityAnnotation = PRN_SEC_ANNOT_PERM_NONE oPDFSetting.SecurityExtraction = PRN_SEC_EXTR_PERM_NONE oPDFSetting.SecurityModification = PRN_SEC_MODIFY_PERM_NONE oPDFSetting.SecurityPrinting = PRN_SEC_PRINT_PERM_NONE oPDFSetting.SecurityOwnerPassword = "my_owner_password" oPDFSetting.SecurityUserPassword = "my_user_password" oPrintJob.PrintOut "C:\test\input.doc", "C:\test\output.pdf"
