Hi All,

I need to check whether pdf is password protected or not. for that I did like

    PdfReader pdfReader = new PdfReader(pdfFullname);
    return false;
catch (BadPasswordException)
    return true;

here pdfFullname is coming as test.pdf. but in IE am getting the full path. but in firefox and chrome only file name is coming.
here exception will come as test.pdf not found as file or resource.

please give input for it.

You don't need the full file path from the browser. The file is being uploaded to the server so all you need is the filename. The rest of the path is going to be whatever the path is to the folder where your server side code put the file when it processed the uploads.

No, your code can NOT see the file on the clients machine and can NOT try and load that copy of the file.
