Finding coordinate of a string on pdf

Can Aspose.PDF determine the exact coordinates of a certain piece of text on a pdf page ?
How would I do that … Can you point me in the right direction.



Thanks for contacting support.

You may extract text along with its Position (XIndent, YIndent) and Rectangle (LLX, LLY, URX, URY), by using TextFragmentAbsorber. Please check following code snippet, where I have determined the position of the text along with its rectangle.

Document doc1 = new Document(dataDir + "A.pdf");
TextFragmentAbsorber tfa = new TextFragmentAbsorber("Search Term");
foreach (TextFragment tf in tfa.TextFragments)
 var position = tf.Position;
 var rectangle = tf.Rectangle;

In case you face any issue while implementing above code snippet, please share your source PDF document with us. We will test the scenario in our environment and address it accordingly.
