GetTextCoordinates returns only private members

the event GetTextCoordinates outputs a list of PDFTextCoordinates, but all members of PDFTextCoordinates are private.

List<PdfTextCoordinates> textCoordinatesList;
this.pdfViewer.GetTextCoordinates(text, pdfViewer.PageNumber, out textCoordinatesList);

How am I supposed to use the private coordinates? Am I missing something?

Hi Enrico,            

Thanks for using Syncfusion Products.

We have to load the PDF document to PDFViewer control if we want to get any required text co-ordinates from the documents. Below we have provided the code snippet for loading the pdf document into PDFViewer and GetTextCoordinates from the loaded document.

Assembly assembly = typeof(MainPage).GetTypeInfo().Assembly;

            Stream fileStream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("PDFViewerWintRT.Assets.Pdf.Barcode.pdf");

            byte[] buffer = new byte[fileStream.Length];

            fileStream.Read(buffer, 0, buffer.Length);

            PdfLoadedDocument ldoc = new PdfLoadedDocument(buffer);



List<PdfTextCoordinates> textCoordinatesList;

this.pdfViewer.GetTextCoordinates(text, pdfViewer.PageNumber, out textCoordinatesList);


Please, let us know if you need any further assistance.

thanks for your message.

Unfortunately, this does not solve my issue.
As I have already written, I have no problem in filling the coordinates list List<PdfTextCoordinates> textCoordinatesList;
The problem is, that I cannot use the PdfTextCoordinates instances inside that list, since all members of the PdfTextCoordinates are private.

Hope that makes things clear.
