PSPDFFileManager

Objective-C

@protocol PSPDFFileManager <NSObject>

Swift

protocol FileManager : NSObjectProtocol

Wraps file system calls. Internal class cluster. Can be replaced with Enterprise SDK wrappers like Good Technology or MobileIron AppConnect.

  • If YES, then we can’t use certain more optimized methods like UIGraphicsBeginPDFContextToFile since they would use write methods that we can’t override.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    @property (nonatomic, readonly) BOOL usesEncryption;

    Swift

    var usesEncryption: Bool { get }
  • We query the file manager for exceptions where we require unencrypted files on disk. This method expects to return YES for any type if usesEncryption returns NO. Various features in PSPDFKit require unencrypted files while usage (Open In, QuickLook, Audio Recording)

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (BOOL)allowsPolicyEvent:(nonnull NSString *)policyEvent;

    Swift

    func allowsPolicyEvent(_ policyEvent: String) -> Bool
  • Copies a file to an unencrypted location if the security check passes.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nullable NSURL *)
        copyFileToUnencryptedLocationIfRequired:(nullable NSURL *)fileURL
                                    policyEvent:(nonnull NSString *)policyEvent

    Swift

    func copyFile(toUnencryptedLocationIfRequired fileURL: URL?, policyEvent: String) throws -> URL
  • Cleans up a temporary file. Searches both in encrypted store (if encrypted) and default disk store.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (BOOL)cleanupIfTemporaryFile:(nonnull NSURL *)URL;

    Swift

    func cleanupIfTemporaryFile(_ URL: URL) -> Bool
  • This method creates a data provider pointing to temporary data storage that is writable. Especially when processing documents, it might be necessary to create temporary files and using this, you can secure the temporary files however you like. By default, this creates a PSPDFFileDataProvider pointing to a temporary file.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nonnull id<PSPDFDataProviding>)createTemporaryWritableDataProviderWithPrefix:
        (nullable NSString *)prefix;

    Declaration

    @property (nonatomic, readonly) NSString *_Nonnull documentDirectory;

    Swift

    var documentDirectory: String { get }
  • Creates and returns the path to a new directory in the Temporary directory for the current user with specified UID. This directory may or may not be encrypted. For an unencrypted directory, please see -[PSPDFFileManager unencryptedTemporaryDirectoryWithUID:].

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nonnull NSString *)temporaryDirectoryWithUID:(nullable NSString *)UID;

    Swift

    func temporaryDirectory(withUID UID: String?) -> String
  • Creates and returns the path to a new unencrypted directory in the Temporary directory for the current user with specified UID. Alternately, please see -[PSPDFFileManager temporaryDirectoryWithUID:] for a possibly encrypted directory.

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nullable NSString *)unencryptedTemporaryDirectoryWithUID:
        (nullable NSString *)UID;

    Swift

    func unencryptedTemporaryDirectory(withUID UID: String?) -> String?
  • Creates and returns the path to a new directory in the Cache directory (/Library/Caches).

    Declaration

    Objective-C

    - (nonnull NSString *)cacheDirectoryWithPath:(nullable NSString *)path;

    Swift

    func cacheDirectory(withPath path: String?) -> String
  • This method should return NO for any special paths that represent resources outside of the native device file systems and YES in all other cases. An example of a special path in the context of this method would be a file path managed by MDM software. This check will be used by components such as PSPDFProcessor and PSPDFConversionOperation to determine if a temporary file copy is needed.
