Shows how to work with built-in document properties.

auto doc = MakeObject<Document>(MyDir + u"Properties.docx");

// The "Document" object contains some of its metadata in its members.
std::cout << "Document filename:\n\t \"" << doc->get_OriginalFileName() << "\"" << std::endl;

// The document also stores metadata in its built-in properties.
// Each built-in property is a member of the document's "BuiltInDocumentProperties" object.
std::cout << "Built-in Properties:" << std::endl;
for (const auto& docProperty : System::IterateOver(doc->get_BuiltInDocumentProperties()))
    std::cout << docProperty->get_Name() << std::endl;
    std::cout << String::Format(u"\tType:\t{0}", docProperty->get_Type()) << std::endl;

    // Some properties may store multiple values.
    if (System::ObjectExt::Is<System::Collections::Generic::ICollection<SharedPtr<System::Object>>>(docProperty->get_Value()))
        for (const auto& value : System::IterateOver(
            std::cout << "\tValue:\t\"" << value << "\"" << std::endl;
