PDF search and extraction

PDF search and extraction


I have a pdf file that I need to search the text in the pdf file line by line and if the line contains the search term it will extract the line and then provide the extracted lines to the viewer.  Is there a forge item that will do that specifically?


Maybe you could use this component for extracting specific (or all) pages from a PDF. https://www.outsystems.com/forge/component-details/1334/iText2/

Afterwards you could search in those extracted values to perform your search.

Not quite sure how it works (never used it), but might be the component you are looking for! :)



iText can be the one, but you probably need a license for it.
