I am trying to build a PDf viewer which can highlight all occurrences of a search string and even travel to the specified bookmark in a pdf document. However, till now i managed to find only the findtext method which returns the co-ordinates of the text but no way to highlight the text on those co-ordinates. Is there any way to do that in the control ?

Any way to traverse bookmarks in the most recent versions of PDf Viewer ?

Hi Anumeet,

We have analyzed your requirement and at present we do not support Bookmark navigation and highlight all occurrence of text search in our PDF Viewer. We would like to inform you that we have logged this as a feature request in our database. We will implement this feature in any of our upcoming releases. We usually have an interval of at least three months between releases. The feature implementation would also greatly depend on the factors such as product design, code compatibility and complexity. Please log on to our support website to check for further updates:


As a workaround we have created a sample for bookmark navigation in the PDF document. Please find the same in the link below.


Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

I am also interested in this feature.
In one of my current projects, we need to be able to search text programmatically, highlight found text and scroll the document to the first search result.
Maybe we can somehow programmatically add the text into the search field and press the button to search it? I did such trick with the standard WPF DocumentViewer.
