Working with metadata in Note formats

GroupDocs.Metadata for .NET provides functionality that allows working with ONE files created by different versions of Microsoft OneNote. Please see the code samples below for more information.

Inspecting Note documents

The inspection feature that is introduced in this section doesn’t work with metadata directly but extracts some useful pieces of information that can be considered as metadata under some circumstances. For example, you may want to obtain information about pages in a note document. Please follow the example below to learn how to do that.

  1. Load a Note document
  2. Extract the root metadata package
  3. Use the InspectionPackage property to inspect the document

AdvancedUsage.ManagingMetadataForSpecificFormats.Document.Note.NoteReadInspectionProperties

using (Metadata metadata = new Metadata(Constants.InputOne))
{
	var root = metadata.GetRootPackage<NoteRootPackage>();

	if (root.InspectionPackage.Pages != null)
	{
		foreach (var page in root.InspectionPackage.Pages)
		{
			Console.WriteLine(page.Title);
			Console.WriteLine(page.Author);
			Console.WriteLine(page.CreationTime);
			Console.WriteLine(page.LastModificationTime);
		}
	}
}
