Reading pdf text with windows 8.1 pdf Apis


  • I have tried to check for methods in PdfDocument and PdfPage classes to read text inside a pdf file, but i couldn't find or make use of the correct method.

    Any clue how to do this..

  • The in-box PDF API is for rendering PDF files as images. It doesn't provide text interpretations. For that you'll need a third party API.

  • Thank you for your answer.

    Which is the best 3rd party library do you suggest ?

  • I don't have any specific recommendations, sorry. You should be able to find a few in your favourite search engine.
