is_encrypted property

FileFormatInfo.is_encrypted property

Returns True if the document is encrypted and requires a password to open.

def is_encrypted(self) -> bool:


This property exists to help you sort documents that are encrypted from those that are not. If you attempt to load an encrypted document using Aspose.Words without supplying a password an exception will be thrown. You can use this property to detect whether a document requires a password and take some action before loading a document, for example, prompt the user for a password.


Shows how to use the FileFormatUtil class to detect the document format and encryption.

doc = aw.Document()
# Configure a SaveOptions object to encrypt the document
# with a password when we save it, and then save the document.
save_options = aw.saving.OdtSaveOptions(save_format=aw.SaveFormat.ODT)
save_options.password = 'MyPassword' + 'File.DetectDocumentEncryption.odt', save_options=save_options)
# Verify the file type of our document, and its encryption status.
info = aw.FileFormatUtil.detect_file_format(file_name=ARTIFACTS_DIR + 'File.DetectDocumentEncryption.odt')
self.assertEqual('.odt', aw.FileFormatUtil.load_format_to_extension(info.load_format))
