Hi all,

I was able to generate a PDF file using QPrinter :


QPrinter printer;
printer.setOutputFormat(QPrinter::PdfFormat);
printer.setOutputFileName(pdfFile.fileName());


I know that Qt just can render a PDF file in order to visualize it and not to work with it. My probleme is that I want to insert some informations in the given pdf file to simplify its indexation on a Database.
So I'm wondering if there's a library that can manipulate a pdf metadata.

Thanks in advance

poppler is only a rendering library for pdf files. If you want manipulate the content of a pdf file you could e.g. use pdftk (http://www.accesspdf.com/pdftk/).
