Return Value

String containing the value associated with InfoKey.

This method can be used to obtain the values of the following standard document information dictionary keys: "Title", "Author", "Subject", "Keywords", "Creator", "Producer", "Created" and "Modified".

See Section 10.2.1 in the PDF Reference for information about Info dictionaries. All values in the Info dictionary should be strings; other data types such as numbers and Booleans should not be used as values in the Info dictionary.

Users may define their own Info dictionary entries. In this case, it is strongly recommended that the key have the developer's prefix assigned by the Adobe Solutions Network.
