There is a property IsTextSelectionEnabled on your PdfViewer control. When this property is set to true, you are able to select text by using mouse or touch.

How is it possible to retrieve the position of the selected text inside the pdf document?

Hi Enrico,


Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.


At present we do not support retrieving position of the selected texts from the PDF Viewer. We consider this implementation as a feature request. Please follow up the implementation of the feature in the incident “131268”.


Please let us know if you need any further assistance.
