PdfProcessing: Support for metadata streams (XMP metadata)
To bring RadPDFProcessing to the next level you should support XMP metadata. This would extremely help to use pdf files from RadPDFProcessing in digital workflows.

Hello all,

The feature is currently not scheduled for implementation and I cannot give a particular timeframe when it might be available.

The libraries are developed as part of our WPF offering and distributed among the other suites. As such, their priority is evaluated according to the demand for the other tasks as well as based on the demand for the other features in Telerik Document Processing. While we understand how this functionality is important for you, the demand for this particular feature is not among the highest ones and using the XMP metadata is not a frequent use case. This is why other tasks with higher demand, respectively priority, are being planned at the moment.

The roadmap is currently being prepared and the one related to Telerik Document Processing will be published along with the roadmap for UI for WPF at https://www.telerik.com/support/whats-new/wpf/roadmap.

I can tell you we can wait for ages for this feature, the first request I have made was 2015! Telerik doesn't understand what XMP is for and that ZUGFERD is important, especially with the new FACTUR-X standard. http://fnfe-mpe.org/factur-x/factur-x_en/

They have no vision for the development of the PDF-libraries, otherwise they would publish a clear roadmap for PDF alone. PDF is such a complex beast you need a dedicated team for it and not some developers who can implement a feature from time to time...

But the XMP-Feature alone would be simple to implement, I even mentioned an open source XMP-library in a former post. Or we just need a way to embed arbitrary XML-Code to the document before it is saved.

any updates to this topic? I cant find anything in the latest release notes for PdfProcessing. I have to update metadata for ZuGFERD-Invoice standard.

Hi Mi Ha,

Thank you for the suggestion. I added it to the internal item, so the development team can consider it when implementing the request.

Maybe you could use this library to implement the feature: https://github.com/drewnoakes/xmp-core-dotnet

It is open source and has a BSD license.

Please add this XMP schemas:

Basic Schema
Dublin Core Schema
Rights Management Schema
Basic Job Ticket Schema
Paged-Text Schema
PDF Schema

If you don't want to provide the above schemas then please provide at least the possibility to set a custom schema, so one can implement the above schemas.
