Property Value

Type: System.String

A password that must be supplied to open the document.

Avoid using hard-coded passwords in your applications. If a password is required in a procedure, request the password from the user, store it in a variable, and then use the variable in your code.

The following code example sets the password of the document to text passed in by the user. To use this example, run it from the ThisDocument class in a document-level project.

private void DocumentPassword(string PasswordFromUser)
{
    this.Password = PasswordFromUser;
}
