AuthorsList Object (IAuthorsList Interface)

This object represents a list of authors of an FB2 or EPUB file. This is a collection of child objects of the AuthorInfo type. The AuthorsList may only exist as a subobject of the DocumentContentInfo object.


  • The indexing of ABBYY FineReader Engine collections starts with 0.
  • The foreach statement in C# (for each in Visual Basic .NET) can be used to manipulate the collection.

  • If the list of authors is empty, the value of the Author property of the DocumentContentInfo object is used. If the IDocumentContentInfo::Author property is empty too, the value of the Author attribute of the output file will be "Unknown Author".
