Hello David,

The Page and Document don't have a Text attribute. it is the labels on that page that have a text attribute. You can retreive in a loop the text of all the labels in a document or on a page and save them to a text file or dispaly them.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for this information, I'll try to implement it, but since many other items can be involved ( various fields ) I suggest a page-level function that retrieve the full text. Maybe other developers are interested.

Hello,

In a loop you can retreive all the text in all the objects containing text from 1 page or more of the document.

I will forward your suggestion to our developers to check it. Please feel free to add it to our wish list forum as well. This forum is usally visited by our project managers.

Best Regards,

Hello,

I checked this issue with our developers.

There is already a method to do that, it is GetRawPageText().

Here is a sample code on using it.

Code: Select all

// open a PDF file
axPDFCreactiveX1.Open(System.IO.Directory.GetCurrentDirectory()+"\\sampleBookmarks.pdf", "");
axPDFCreactiveX1.Refresh ();
String text = axPDFCreactiveX1.GetRawPageText (1);
MessageBox.Show (text);
Hope this helps.
