Get supported file formats

GroupDocs.Parser allows to get the list of all the supported file formats by the getSupportedFileTypes static method:

Iterable<FileType> FileType.getSupportedFileTypes();

This method returns a collection of FileType items with the following members:

MemberDescription
getFileFormatFile type name e.g. “Microsoft Word Document”.
getExtensionFilename suffix (including the period “.") e.g. “.doc”.

Also FileType contains static fields that represent all the supported file formats.

Here are the steps to get all the supported file formats:

The following example shows how to print all the supported file types:

// Get a collection of supported file formats
Iterable<FileType> supportedFileTypes = FileType.getSupportedFileTypes();
// Iterate over collection and print file format information
for (FileType fileType : supportedFileTypes) {
    System.out.println(fileType);
}
