    You can get the PDF version when look at the first lines of the document.

    There is no page size associated with a PDF document. Every page in a PDF

    document can have a different size. Even though some applications make the

    assumption that all pages are the same size, and only display the size of

    the first page, that is wrong for many documents.


    To get the page size for one page, you would use the

    AcroExch.PDPage.GetSize() function.


    As far as I know, there is no method to get the PDF version of a document

    through the IAC or the JavaScript API, it's only available to a plug-in. By

    reading the first line of a document, you may not get the real version

    information: A file may claim that it's PDF-1.2, but can contain

    transparency, which was not added to the PDF spec until version 1.4. So to

    get the real version of a PDF file, you need to look for features that are

    used in the file.
