Getting Started

After the reference to library was added to your project you are now ready to start writing code to convert PDF to Text in your .NET application. You can copy the C# code lines from the section below to extract the text from a PDF document to a .NET string and to search a text in a PDF document and get all its locations in PDF pages.

C# Code Samples

At the top of your C# source file add the using EvoPdf.PdfToText; statement to make available the EVO PDF to Text API for your .NET application.

// add this using statement at the top of your C# file
using EvoPdf.PdfToText;

To extract all the text from a PDF file to a .NET String and save the extracted text to file you can use the C# code below.

// create the converter object in your code where you want to run conversion
PdfToTextConverter converter = new PdfToTextConverter();

// extract the text from PDF
string extractedText = converter.ConvertToText("my_pdf_file_path");

// write the .NET string to a text file
System.IO.File.WriteAllText("PdfToText.txt", extractedText, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8);

To search a text in a PDF file and retrieve all its locations in PDF pages you can use the C# code below.

// create the converter object in your code where you want to run conversion
PdfToTextConverter converter = new PdfToTextConverter();

// search text with case sensitive and whole world options
string textToFind = "PDF";
bool caseSensitive = false;
bool wholeWord = false;
FindTextLocation[] locations = converter.FindText("my_pdf_file_path", textToFind, caseSensitive, wholeWord);

// use the found text locations
foreach (FindTextLocation location in locations)
    float textXPos = location.X; 
    float textYPos = location.Y;;
    float textWidth = location.Width;
    float textHeight = location.Height;
