File Import

If you want to create a searchable PDF (includes text), or get the detected data or text of the imported file, use loadFile

import { DocutainSDK, PDFPageFormat } from '@docutain/capacitor-plugin-docutain-sdk'

const result = await DocutainSDK.loadFile(filePath)
//generate a PDF from the imported file
var destinationUri = (await Filesystem.getUri({ path: "sample.pdf", directory:Directory.Data })).uri;
const pdfUri = (await DocutainSDK.writePDF({
fileUri: destinationUri,
overWrite: true,
pageFormat: PDFPageFormat.A4
}catch (error) {
//error occured
