How to get total pages of a document in Java

Hello,


I have tried to use GroupDocs Conversion for Java 3.0.0. Can you please show me how to get total pages of document? I couldn’t find any way to do it.

Thanks.

Hi Agustino,


Thanks for taking interest in GroupDocs.Conversion for Java 3.0.0 and posting the query.

Surely, you can get or count total pages of any document. While converting a document into any format, you can count number of the pages. For instance, see the code given below:

ConversionHandler conversionHandler = new ConversionHandler(Utilities.getConfiguration());
SaveOptions saveOption = new ImageSaveOptions();
saveOption.setConvertFileType(ImageSaveOptions.ImageFileType.Jpg);
saveOption.setOutputType(OutputType.String);
int count = 0;
List convertedDocumentPath = conversionHandler.<List> convert(fileName, saveOption);
for (int i = 0; i < convertedDocumentPath.size(); i++) {
count++;
}
System.out.println(count);

In this example snippet, I am converting a document to image. You can find count/list of the pages in convertedDocumentPath.
Hope it will help you.

Many Thanks

Hi Atir,


Thank you for the snippet code.
My use case is: I need to convert certain page only when user request for it, However we need to show total pages for the given document when user show first page.

Is there any way to get total pages without converting entire document? In the previous version of GroupDocs conversion (1.3.0), I can call conversionHandler.getPageCount(InputStream is, String fileName).

Thanks

Hi Agustino,


In the previous version of GroupDocs conversion (1.3.0), I can call conversionHandler.getPageCount(InputStream is, String fileName).
In Next Generation GroupDocs.Conversion for Java 3.0.0, you cannot count number of pages of a document like you do in older version. However, we have added your request in our internal issue tracking system with ID : CONVERSIONJAVA-165. As we get any update from the concerned team, we will notify you.
Please stay tuned.

Many Thanks
