Get default load options for a source format

GroupDocs.Conversion allows you to get default load options for the source document format. This will allow you to get default load options runtime, knowing the source format.

To get default options, follow these steps:

  1. Call the static GetPossibleConversion method of the Converter class with source file extension as a parameter.
  2. From received possible conversion read the LoadOptions property.
  3. Create an instance of the Converter class and pass source document path as a constructor parameter and load options from the previous step.
  4. Instantiate the appropriate ConvertOptions class e.g. (PdfConvertOptions, WordProcessingConvertOptions, SpreadsheetConvertOptions etc.).
  5. Call the Convert method of the Converter class instance and pass filename for the converted document and the instance of ConvertOptions from the previous step.

The following code snippet shows how to get default load options for a Word processing document:

var possibleConversions = Converter.GetPossibleConversions("docx");
var loadOptions = (WordProcessingLoadOptions) possibleConversions.LoadOptions;
loadOptions.Password = "12345";

using (Converter converter = new Converter("password_protected.docx", () => loadOptions))
    var convertOptions = new PdfConvertOptions();
    converter.Convert(outputFile, convertOptions);
